Over the past two weeks, we've gradually laid out our selections for the Twins organization's top ten prospects. Each day, we took an in-depth look at a different rising star within the system, outlining their strengths and weaknesses while spelling out what each must do to succeed in the majors. Here's how our list came together:
10. Max Kepler, OF
9. Trevor May, RHP
8. J.O. Berrios, RHP
7. Eddie Rosario, 2B
6. Kyle Gibson, RHP
5. Alex Meyer, RHP

Though we are nearly four months away from the draft – and there is still much baseball to be played – it’s an event that is very significant and may stay very much on some of our minds as we progress through the spring and into summer.

It's gonna be a tube socks year, folks.
Need to make it a goal to at least TRY to remember the names of the starting pitchers. Think I might try cue cards.
Two crappy seasons behind us.
