The Yankees might be losing thier best player in Robinson Cano. That being said: They have no second basemen in their minor league system who are worthy of even playing 2nd base at the MLB level. Why not trade for Michael Pineda and give up one of our stud 2nd basemen and another prospect or prospects for a potential top pitcher? Does this sound possible? The Yankees can always pay for Top pitching to supplement this season and beyond. Not as easy to find a stud second baseman and we have 2-3.

A list of 2013 Minor League All Stars who are also Cape Cod Alumn
Drafting at the college level not all bad............
The below list is from the Twins 2013 Minor League All Stars. The question is:
If the 2013 statistical numbers of the MiLB players on this list were projected to possible similar numbers in 2016 @ the MLB level - Would the Twins be in the World Series? Take into account that the MiLB players are probably 20 - 30+ games short of an official MLB season as it pertains to numbers.
CF Byron Buxton
SS Jorge Polanco
2B Eddie Rosario
3B Miguel Sano
I just saw a youtube highlight video of Adam Brett Walker with the Kernels. The first short clip is an advertisement for the Kernels (be patient) and then there are 27 or 29 short highlight clips (15 - 30 seconds each) from just the Kernels home games in CR.
He truly does have incredible power. Each HR must have been over 400 feet. Must see TV.
The link "Twinkie Town" Minor League Baseball - The Top 25 Update offered a Pre-Season Top 25. I'd like to know how your post season version would now look based on this list + Non Ranked members you know of....................

Adam Brett Walker II is the first player in the MiLB this season to reach 100 RBI. After his sac fly on Monday - he stands at 103 RBI. The question is:
Can he break the CR Kernels Franchise record with 20 games remaining?
That total ranks third in the modern day (since 1949) history of the Cedar Rapids baseball club. He is 10 behind Larry Barnes, who played for the Kernels in 1996. John Tanner is the modern day record holder with 121 set in 1949.
Where will his
Regular season ends in a month and AFL Rosters will be announced. Who would you send?
How does Walker drop out of the Twins Prospect Rankings?
Leads the Midwest League or Top 3 Ranking in: HRs / RBIs / Slg% / OPS% / TBs / & Runs.
Walker gets jumped over by this years 3rd rounder who is only 2 months younger (Turner) and in Rookie ball. He is the 7th ranked guy on his own on team? and still behind 2 guys who have yet to pitch this season (Bard & Chargois)?
Am I the only one who finds this just wrong?
Adam Brett Walker II and Jonathan Murphy played next to each other in the OF @ Jacksonville University (FL) but came up short in terms of an ASUN title. The duo is definitely doing thier part to lead the CR Kernels to a second half divisional title. Murphy is also an exceptional outfielder (possibly best) according to manager Jake Mauer.
Murphy .350+ BA
Walker 21 HRs and 85 RBI
What are the odds of a team taking 2 kids from Minnesota with their 1st 2 picks andbeing from LA (Dodgers)?
Chris Anderson 1st Round
Tom Windle 2nd Round
I was just discussung this with friends in regards to - Adam Brett Walker II:
Through college and his professional career - he is 51 for 52 in stolen bases.
College - 40 for 41 SBs (Division 1 Jacksonville University)
Professional - 4 for 4 (Elizabethton 2012 regular season) / 3 for 3 (6 playoff games) / 4 for 4 (Cedar Rapids 2013 regular season).
That's a 98% success rate in Stolen Bases over the last 5 years. That's right: I said 98% success rate

Josh Burris last game experience involved a game tying HR in the bottom of the 9th and an extra inning Walk Off Grand Slam (Elizabethton 2012 Championship Game). In his first game of the 2013 season - Burris experiences a game with a crazy and similar ending.
