What Was Your Favorite Alexi Casilla Moment?

The big news today is that the Twins have optioned Alexi Casilla to Triple-A Rochester and have called up Matt Tolbert.

Casilla had a poor start last year and was sent down to the minors in mid April. He was later called back up in mid May after another player was injured and went on a tear both offensively and defensively. Perhaps they are hoping he gets that spark again.

Do you see anything wrong with the above card? Compare it to the card below.

Matt Tolbert had a great start last year with the Twins. He had hit pretty well in the #2 spot in the lineup and is versitile enough to play second base, third base and shortstop. Tolbert was injured early in the season and never made it back to the Major League roster until the September call-ups. Here's hoping Tolbert can make the best of this opportunity!
