No McDonald, Span

First of all, in case you didn't know, the Minnesota Twins called Lew Ford up from AAA Rochester after the game yesterday. In addition to this, the Red Wings manager Stan Cliburn will join the Twins staff for the rest of the season.

Okay, this is great. They added Ford, we got some others that were added on Sunday. But, is this all the moves we're going to make?

We're basically out of the playoff race, and instead of calling up some young guys to see what they got, we're going to stick with Punto and White wasting our time every game?

The Twins need to at least call up Darnell McDonald and some other pitcher like Duensing or someone. It'd also be nice if they called up Denard Span, Matt Tolbert or Jose Morales.

Now I can understand if they don't want a bunch of people up here, but the guys on the 40-man roster already, like Span and McDonald, should be called up. They are after all some of our future guys compared to Punto, White or even Ford.

What are your thoughts on this?
