"To be or not to be, that is the question."

-William Shakespeare's Hamlet

"To keep or not to keep" is the question the Twins organization needs to be asking themselves.

When the Twins acquired Tsuyoshi Nishioka in the winter of 2010, the word was that they were gaining a batting champion with a slick glove to fill the hole at either shortstop or second base. He was supposed to sure up our infield and provide a reliable bat in the lineup. As any Twins fan knows, that hasn't happened yet for the Japanese star at the major-league level here in the United States.

After a disastrous start to his major-league career and another subpar performance in his second season, the question is already surfacing in Twins Territory: keep Nishioka or not?

Here are the facts of his brief tenure with the Twins, laid out for all to see. I know what I think, but I want to know how other Twins fans feel about Nishioka and his future with the Minnesota Twins.

Does he stay or does he go?
