Continued: Reusse: Lost weekend puts focus on festering outfield issues

“Chris got beat in there a few times in big situations, and I think that made him too ‘inside’ conscious,” hitting coach Tom Brunansky said. “He was protecting in there and that caused him to miss some pitches out over the plate that he can drive.”

It’s easy to say Colabello had his run and don’t look for him to be back, but there’s also this:

Jason Kubel and Parmelee, two lefties, are basically the same player. The Twins need a righthanded hitter on the bench more than a lefthander.

Of course, there’s a greater need for a player who can take center field on a daily basis, and the Twins don’t have one of those, either.

 

Patrick Reusse can be heard 3-6 p.m. weekdays on AM-1500. preusse@startribune.com
