    Not the Worst farm system

    actually rated in the top 20 overall.... of the 30 teams without question to me, but, its definately outside the top 10.

    Evan Bigley OF - New Britian would be in my top 50.
    Caleb Theilbar RP - might be right at #50.
    Angel Morales OF - would be no higher than 35.
    There are a few others....

    but for the most part good list YOur House MY House.

    The worst farm system in MLB without question. Not one impact pitcher among the bunch. Oh well we have Scott Diamond and Brian Duensing we should be fine.

    Good list, and I like having Arcia so high. Between his hitting ability (hasn't lost a step moving up to AA so far) and the young age, he should be shooting up most lists.

    I might move Wimmers down a little, since he's very much in limbo right now.

    A tear of joy has appeared in my eye with the news he would be included. Justice has once again been served on the Twins Daily site. God Bless America.

    That's a good quick fix. I'll go on thinking that I did so the whole time.

    I do have to give a shout out to one of the two pitchers with the most most organization wins...Jason Wheeler- 10 and 4.
    Ahhh yes. The Torrance Tornado...How could I forget? I'd probably slot him 40 above Shibuya. Like the criticism so far and wouldn't mind some more. I do love feedback.

    Like it the list. Particularly have Oswaldo so high. The guy can rake. I do have to give a shout out to one of the two pitchers with the most most organization wins...Jason Wheeler- 10 and 4. I think in the 50 he could have some slot maybe taken by a guy who has not thrown a professional pitch or has been out performed by him at Beloit. You know I have to defend the honor of my Adopt a Prospect.

    He's hitting for more power than I expected. The .130 average he had earlier wasn't going to hold, but it still remains to be seen if he will hit enough (or defend well enough) to stay in the league. I'm reasonably optimistic, but then I guess I always am (except when I'm unreasonably optimistic.)

    Make that 5th in OPS with .765 after today. He passed Denard Span and Ryan Doumit.

    I think Hicks needs two full seasons in the minors and that's if he can handle it. Willingham has great value, but he is signed for three years. While that does make him more valuable to other teams, I doubt the Twins would trade him this season. Perhaps next season or the following in 2014 if selling at the deadline becomes a consistency for the upcoming years ahead.

    I think Willingham will be the most valuable outfield trading chip. I hate watching a losing team have to dump its most valuable assets. I sure wish Benson was pushing these guys rather than having his current season. ETA on Hicks at this point?

    I would trade Revere.

    I get the feling the Span's upside is easily replaceable by the less-expensive Revere, and -- yes -- moving Denard to left or right may give the Twins more ability to cover the field, but stat-wise it is the similar case made against moving Mauer to first or third. He is best in centerfield. The Twins are better served with the upcoming Benson, or Hicks, in center or one of the coners, looking 2-3 years out.

    Revere is still a tad rough -- at times. But so was Hunter, so was Span. The Twins believed enough in Revere to make him a first rounder, amidst all the discussions hat happened back then (most notably that the Twins were being cheap).

    If you look at 2011, the two weren't that far apart, and you have to play the Span marketing chip while he is hitting closer to .300 then after he falls to .260 and becomes...just another outfielder.

    I would not trade Revere.

    I agree. You have to give something to get something. Span is proven, Revere is an unknown commodity. I say roll the dice, and I will miss Span, but we've got to get some freaking pitching sooner than later
