    Brandon, I think we've gone just about every which way on Burton, mostly in the thread about this post over on the forums, so I wont rehash that here.

    Thanks to all of you for stopping over to enjoy my writing, or to disagree. The discussion, more than winning or losing, is the fun part for me.

    I too have gotten over Burton. He is much too inconsistent. He has good stuff, but he is too hit-or-miss. I agree that there are a handful of guys in AAA Rochester who deserve a roster spot more than Jared does.

    I'd bet his odds are greater than 50-50 that he implodes at some point, but for now he's doing ok.

    It was actually about this time last year he had that awful game against the Yankees, and we have the Yankees coming to town in a couple weeks, so brace yourself for what's to come.

    KV, should we then discount his first 28 outings of the season and assume the last 5 are the ones that matter?

    He's been a trainwreck this season. He can't get lefties out with consistency, and he's been putting way to many guys on base. Yes, his June numbers are improved, but what value does he provide even if he can pitch to a 4ish ERA for the rest of the season? There are half a dozen guys in the Rochester bullpen pitching better than that.

    Thanks, I like having fun with silly literature and baseball together.

    Troy, thanks for the heads up. I'm not sure how these patent trolls could get down to us as a little independent podcasters, but it sure does look like a mess.

    you may also want to be aware of this. There's a lawsuit going forward that may impact podcasts. I don't know if this is necessarily related, but here's the link to the article.

    I had a ton of fun recording this episode. Finally figuring this podcast thing out.

    I sing the grinch song to start the episode, that alone is worth a listen.

    You could be Twins tickets for a quarter. Don't know about free shipping, though.

    I'm excited to see both the hitters, and the pitchers that the Twins have down towards the bottom of their system (EST, lower-levels), obviously projecting that far down is always a bit of a crap-shoot, but I think there is a lot of talent down there and I'm excited to watch those guys grow and mature as thay make their journy towards Minnesota. And I agree that Goodrum should have a bounce back season in 2013, too much talent there for it not to.

    You could make an arguement for Romy Jimenez, as he had an outstanding season and improved his power numbers considerably as well (Best Lower Level Hitter). He was having a triple crown season before injury. I'm going on record and saying my Breakout Hitter for 2013 (Lower Levels) is Adam Brett Walker (Cedar Rapids). Kepler will contiue to do Kepler and is a star in the making, but I have my eye on the young slugger (Walker) who is still only 20 years old. Goodrum will make eyes turn this 2013 season as well.

    Is it fair that I counted Parmelee as a minor leaguer even though he is officially a rookie this season? I say yes. If you have an issue, just substitute Arcia in his place to give him three victories.

    Looking forward to these posts.

    If you want, you can add that logo to the header for your blog. Just go to Blog Settings (in the sub menu) and put the image in the Blog Description (and maybe center it.)

    You're right about Solarte and Osterbrock. Osterbrock was released just days after this post originally appeared on www.puckettspond.com

    @rogrulz: Parmalee will be fun to watch if he can hit MLB pitching with any sort of regularity, if not, it'll be a long season for Parmalee fans. While I think he may get off to a slow start I think Parm can be about league average at 1B this season.

    @PeantusFromHeaven, it's going to be fun watching Ben get into games this year, hopefully he still gets his ABs and time out in the field so we can watch him make crazy catches in the OF and run wild on the base paths.

    May as well jump on the Parmalee bandwagon, I really want to hope he is for real this year.

    I don't think Yangarvis Solarte (tex) , or Dan Osterbrock and a few others are in the organizatoin anymore.
    mine:

    C- Chris Herrmann
    1B- Matt Rizzioti (AA from Phills last year)
    2B- Levi Michael
    3B- Deibinson Romero
    SS- Brian Dozier
    OF- Aaron Hicks
    OF- Oswaldo Arcia
    OF- Nathan Roberts
    RHP - Adrian Salcedo
    RHP - Bobby Lanigan
    RHP - David Bromberg
    LHP - Tyler Robertson
    LHP - Corey Williams
    LHP - Pat Dean

    *almost went with Eddie Rosario at 2B or OF, and Niko Goodum if 4 years was an option.
