Dutch treat

From the Reds:

The Reds claimed off waivers from the Twins LHP Alexander Smit. He has yet to be assigned to a Reds minor league affiliate.

Smit, 21, went 1-4 with 1 save and a 5.86 ERA in 18 appearances (8 starts) this season with Class A Fort Myers, including a 3.86 ERA in 10 games as a reliever (8er, 18.2ip). Last season with Class A Beloit, Smit went 7-2 with a 2.99 ERA in 34 appearances (13 starts). He was named Midwest League Pitcher of the Week for August 7-13.

Smit, a native of the Netherlands, was ranked by Baseball America as the Twins’ 14th-best prospect in 2003. In 2001 and 2002 he was a member of the Dutch National Junior Team and was selected to play on the Dutch Olympic Team in the 2002 International Cup in Cuba.

Wayne Krivsky said Smit will go to Dayton.

Just how many Twins is Wayne K. going to sign? There's got to be a limit before we have to start calling this the Redwins or Tweds or something equally as silly.

Whats with us being the Twins garbage disposal. I understand Wayne's knowledge of that organization, but come on its getting silly. I would guess without looking that over 1/3 of our player signings are former Twins. Wayne has gotta go.
