07:38 AM ET 01.08 | On Tuesday, Twins general manager Terry Ryan had to set some expectations for Miguel Sano. Tommy John surgery has not been ruled out for [Sano]. ... Sano, who had received an encouraging report several weeks ago on his right (throwing) elbow, arrived in Fort Myers, Fla., late Monday night. An additional exam on Sano's strained ulnar collateral ligament will be performed, Ryan said of the power-hitting third baseman. Asked if the Twins were confident Sano, 20, could avoid surgery on a problem that caused his Dominican Winter League season to end after two games in late October, Ryan expressed optimism but not certainty. ... Ranked No. 3 among all prospects by Baseball America last season, Sano also has been chosen for the cover of Baseball America's annual Prospect Handbook.

This seems unusual to have a 20 yr old minor league infielder in need of TJ surgery.

But, whatever FN does, it should not, I repeat SHOULD NOT, have a thread about the MLB Hall of Fame Class of 2014 which will be revealed today. I mean, who would want to weigh in on that topic - it's not as if this class has any historical significance, like, regarding PEDs or anything.

ya beat me to it. lets make our own HOF thread.

Well, if the kid has elbow problems, best to get them corrected sooner than later.

Man, there are a ton of eligible guys that I think should be in. Not necessarily this year, but I think all these guys should make it:Jeff BagwellCraig BiggioBarry BondsRoger ClemensTom GlavineGreg MadduxMike Mussina Curt Schilling

I'm guessing Morris will squeak in..................and this will sound weird but I'd really like to see Frank Thomas get in, it would be good for Chicago as Maddux will go in as a Brave and Chicago's HOF's (post WW II) you can count on Slink's nuts...

Can we have an discussion on how bouncy balls and 'the fear' will affect HOF voting?

For this years class I'd go with Maddux, Glavine, Thomas and Biggio. As far as Clemens and Bonds, I agree they should be it, but I'd make them wait the whole 15 years.

This seems more than reasonable. In that time frame to see if anything comes out to further tarnish them.

As for the votes already known(186), Maddux, Glavine and Thomas are all over 90%, Biggio is at 78.5%, Piazza at 68.8% and Morris at 60.8%
