Twins Send Jeff Manship Down To Rochester, Call Up Jim Hoey

With the re-shuffling of the Twins' bullpen, the team has decided that they need some fresh blood, and they've brought some up from AAA Rochester for just that purpose.

The Twins sent right-hander Jeff Manship down to Rochester following today's 4-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays, and called right-hander Jim Hoey to take that spot in the bullpen.

Manship has appeared in five games this season, and in 3.1 innings pitched has compiled an ERA of 8.10. His last appearance came in Friday's 5-2 loss to Tampa Bay, where he allowed two hits and walked one in one-third of an inning.

Hoey was acquired by the Twins' this off-season as part of the trade to send J.J. Hardy to the Baltimore Orioles. . .who, coincidentally, the Twins start a four-game series with at Camden Yards tomorrow.

If I may be so bold as to do so. . .since all of these relief pitchers today have entrance music, after the jump I would like to humbly make a suggestion for Mr. Hoey's entrance music when he makes an appearance at Target Field.

Tell me this wouldn't be great.

"Now pitching for the Twins. . .right-hander. . .Jim. . .Hoey!"

Ooooooooooooooh, Jungle Love. . .HOEY-OH-EE-OH!! Think I wanna know ya (know ya). . .

If they actually use that, I want credit for it or something.
