  1. 2012 Draft Power Rankings-8/20/12

    A few notes from the past week regarding the 2012 Draft Class:
    • Jose Berrios jumps to the #1 ranking thanks to a dominant performance last Friday against Kingsport (5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 11 K)
    • As I suspected last week, Taylor Rogers made his next appearance out of the bullpen, likely due to his high number of innings pitched.
    • Three players didn't accumulate any stats this past week. Luke Bard, who I suspect is still dealing with the injury that caused him to leave his Aug 10th appearance

  2. 2012 Draft Power Rankings-8/13/12

    Here are my updated Class of 2012 Power Rankings. In short, a few things that jump out:

    • Honestly, any one of the top three (Baxendale, Berrios, Jones) could be ranked #1. I have Baxendale there because of his unbelievable K/BB and K/9 ratios.
    • 11th round pick Taylor Rogers out of the University of Kentucky has now thrown a total of 140 innings this year (89.1 in college, 50.2 as a Twin). His numbers for Beloit, although not terrible, are significantly worse than the numbers he

  3. Player Comparison

    Before I go into detail on these two players, I want you to look at their A-AAA stats, as well as parts of two MLB seasons.

  4. Best dollar I ever spent

    Normally I live for Saturday afternoons with absolutely nothing to do. As a middle school teacher, my week is typically filled with cleaning up spills, writing up dress code violations, and holding back indescribable rage. I even manage to slip in a few minutes of instruction when my kids least expect it. So when my wife asked me if I wanted to spend a summer Saturday afternoon at the "Best of the Midwest" flea market, for unknown reasons I agreed. When we arrived, I was absolutely blown ...

  5. 2012 Draft Power Rankings-8/6/12

    A few changes in the rankings for this week. Pitchers still dominate the top of the list, but the hitters are starting to pick it up. Larson has gotten off to a great start, while Buxton is starting to show why he was picked 2nd overall as he now leads the class with 11 extra base hits.

    I made two changes: 1) Formatting the stats into two lines to hopefully make it more readable on mobile devices, and 2) Using extra base hits (XBH) instead of listing 2B, 3B, and HR individually. ...

  6. 2012 Draft Power Rankings-7/30/12

    Here's my updated Twins 2012 Draft Power Rankings. I intended to update weekly, but I moved and was without internet for about a week which actually turns out nice, seems like Mondays would be a better day to update the rankings rather than Thursdays. Since the first look at our new prospects (on 7/19), five have began their professional careers. They are marked with an asterisk (*), and bring the total to 26 players. All stats were taken from BaseballReference.com and the stats for the players ...

  7. 2012 Draft Power Rankings

    Six weeks have passed since the 2012 MLB First-Year Player Draft and I thought it would be interesting to see which new Twins players have jumped out to a quick start to begin their professional career. Obviously the players that were drafted in the earlier rounds still have the higher upside, and therefore would be listed higher on organizational prospect lists, but this ranking is strictly based on the player's production in the Twins minor league system. Here is the 1st edition of the Twins 2012 ...
