Broken nose notwithstanding, Jose Calderon will play Game seven without wearing a clear, protective mask.
At least, that’s the game plan.
One of the leagues best 3 point shooters this season Calderon is showing that it will take a lot more than a broken nose to hold him out of a Game 7 match-up. So far this series Calderon has averaged 11.3 points 4.5 assists and shooting an impressive 53% from beyond the arc in 27 minutes per game.ANALYST: Jonathan Impemba
Korean slugger Byung-ho Park is reportedly traveling to Minnesota to talk with the Twins.
With a $12.85M winning bid, the Twins now have 30 days to negotiate a contract with Park and his agent. If they don't, they will be refunded the money and Park will return to the KBO. The Korean slugger batted .343/.436/.714 with 53 home runs last season for the Nexen Heroes and hit 52 the year before. The KBO is notoriously hitter-friendly, so take those numbers with a grain of salt. He should still be able to hit for power, but given the dimensions of Target Field, 25 home runs is more of a realistic expectation. Analysis: Howard Bender
