    And P.S. I am going to do the same today with no analysis. It's a pre-draft necessity to get prospect lists out and then a post-draft necessity to add in the picks.

He's not hitting, but I'll admit I was pretty abrupt when moving him down. Although, I was never too high on him to begin with.
    So about Mejia . . . yeah he is doing very well so far. It's a weird thing. They just shifted him over from GCL to Fort Myers out of need at the end of last season. Then he is in EST and goes straight to Fort Myers again? I don't know how to gauge that. He is someone to watch and I might just start a thread on him.

    If you are down on Oliveres, why did you not drop Wimmers from the list. A probable pitch to contact guy in the majors with TJ surgery does not seem to be a good risk.

    Roberts may be a little low, but has not played much this year due to injuries. Always have good feelings about onbase machines.

    I would completely disagree with this. Oliver's throws gas. He's coming off of the Tommy John, May get into games later this year. Definitely not a guy to give up on!

    Boer was just a 2nd round pick a couple years ago. Sure, he's struggled as a starter. He can move to the bullpen. His current injury (off field) certainly doesn't help, but way too early to give up on him.

    Matt Tomshaw - (Beloit) - Lefty who knows how to pitch and can eat up innings. Pitch to contact guy.
    Candido Pimentel - Appy League MVP (small stature, but just gets on base) - small ball guy
    Burris was a big consideration, but he was a little low in the system and about age average for E-Town. By the time i get to around 45-50 it gets filled with "guys I like" that don't get too much attention. He would probably beat Wickens and a few others on someone else's rankings. Pimental wasn't toolsy enough and his age wasn't appropriate for Elizabethton. His one year wonder success this season was also a concern that cost Daniel Ortiz quite a few spots. Tomshaw isn't a strikeout artist and is pretty old for his league. The worst I feel about is Hauser as shanewahl wrote since I neglected his good track record and brief minor league career. He's probably a 40-50 player.

    I thought he was too old. He's 24, but he did start at 22 so I probably should have cut him a little more slack. I mean I did include Pugh.

    I believe that Benson should be lower at least until he shows he can adjust next year. Maybe move everyone else until Hermsen up a spot. Top end looks solid, but still most are 2 years away. This is better than last year however for a positive note.

    Good catch. I should have had him.

    Goodrum and Michael at 21 and 22, respectively, but no love at all for the just-turned 19 Jorge Polanco?

    I think that this is a visionary idea that will probably never be seriously considered by the Twins. On the other hand, I love watching Revere play in the outfield.

    At least we know he won't need a cutoff man to turn a double play from 2B... Then we would not have to hear any more noodle arm comments again.

    Why in god^&&&()%&(*^%(*^%(&^%(*^%(*^%(&^%*&%#%$#@(&^ would the Twins switch one of the best fielding and contact hitters/outfielders in the game to 2B?
