Bert Rips Yawning Kevin Slowey During Broadcast

May 23, 2011

**A little context: Slowey and the Twins haven’t been on the best of terms. He doesn’t want to be a BP pitcher and there are rumors Slowey could be traded or sent down to AAA and traded. **
The topic of Kevin Slowey came up during tonight’s broadcast and the camera’s showed Slowey yawning in the bullpen.  Watch the video and you can hear the burn Bert gives him for yawning (which I’m sure a lot of people do, it just couldn’t have been worse timing for Slowey).

    We have met Kevin on several occasions, and all of this coverage doesn’t fit at all with the Kevin we know. He is a humble, hard working guy who has said numerous times that he is grateful just to be playing baseball. I don’t understand why the media had targeted him as a “malcontent”. It just doesn’t fit with his personality or the comments he has made in public.

    I have nothing but the highest regard for Slowey from the little interaction I’ve had. That’s why the reports in the media are confusing and ultimately, disappointing. I have no reason not to trust what the media is reporting as they are stand up people as well. I hope that in the end, Slowey and the Twins can work things out and use his talent on the field. Don’t want to trade him but if that’s what it takes so be it, as long as both sides come out satisfied.
