2012 Draft Power Rankings-8/20/12

by Matt VS on 08-20-2012 at 10:27 AM
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

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

Best dollar I ever spent

by Matt VS on 08-06-2012 at 06:08 PM
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

2012 Draft Power Rankings-8/6/12

by Matt VS on 08-06-2012 at 12:58 AM
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.
