"There's a lot of Boof"

A close call: Jason Tyner drove Boof Bonser's changeup right back at Bonser on Sunday. Though he was pitching behind a screen, Bonser barely avoided having the seams of the Spalding baseball tattooed on his torso.

In the give-and-take of Spring Training, his teammates who saw it were giving Bonser a heavy dose of teasing. Gardenhire threw in his two cents' worth, as well.

"Boof," he said, "that ball wouldn't have been close to most guys. But there's a lot of Boof behind that screen."


The more Boof, the better. We want him in the majors for a long time.

No word yet on when Bonser will make his 2007 Spring Training debut. The Twins kicked off their pre-season yesterday, and played another game today. Carlos Silva was hit hard (what a suprise) in today's contest.

Will update as situation warrants.
