    The FSL vs Everybody Else

    As I look at the FSL and the statistical abnormalities - I wonder how their overall numbers compare with other leagues throughout the minors. The FSL is considered the hardest league to hit either...

    Matt Tomshaw atop the Twins minor league leaderboard with 9 Wins. His knuckleball is worth everyone taking notice of. You may not want to compare it to a 95 MPH fastball, but the results are the...

    I can see Max going to CR though, without promoting anyone else (OF) in CR. He is mashing in ETown.

    I get that Kanzler is playing well, but why him and not JD Williams? His past performances should be enough to at least get him back to high A (Ft. Myers). Has Williams fallin off that much since...

    Where will Levi Michel go when he returns soon. I see he has been playing SS in GCL as well. Does this mean Polanco could move up to AA at SS or does Michel move up at SS?

    The Miracle are quietly putting together an excellent 2nd half. They have won 9 of 10 and have found ways to win. The 17 inning game has been there only recent slip up and they went 17 innings...

    Why promote him last season to high A at mid season only to send him back down to Low A all of this season? Doesn't seem fair to the player. They never seem to give players reasons for their moves....

    Miracle lose 11-7 to Daytona Cubs on a walk off grand slam by "Rock Shoulders". The Miracle had the bases loaded with nobdy out in the top of 17th and couldn't score - K's by Hicks - Walker and...

    Matt Tonshaw should be the focus of this thread anyway. Another awesome performance and again no true respect for a pitch that has MLB upside. Why is his dominant knuckler less celebrated than many...

    Done. What do you want to talk about? I'm game for anything Twin related.

    *League MVP in Low "A" ball despite awful OBP
    *HRs in every 4.5 games despite playing in "The FSL Pitchers League" where hitters notoriouisly don't hit HRs or hit for high averages.
    *The highest...

    Not sure that will make believers out of most. But maybe the 4th time is the charm?
  14. I'm confident Walker can shatter this record and...

    I'm confident Walker can shatter this record and not only because he's staying in A+ longer than most. I think so because he hits HRs at a higher rate than all of the Power hitters in the Twins...

    It just makes it that more important to get the right guy to throw to you. These guys have coaches who throw 5 million BP balls a day. They can find someone to groove some to them for 2 minutes...

    In an attempt to keep the HR Derby interesting at the All Star game - I suggest they use a time limit (2 minutes) format like they did in the FSL All Star game. Each participant has 2 minutes to hit...

    The MLB Home Run Derby should take on the format of the FSL (minus the secondary fence). The Florida State League gave each participant 3 minutes to hit as many as possible. I would recommend 2...

    Bash Brothers 2016
    1) Buxton CF (17 HR)
    2) Dozier 2B (28 HR)

    My point is that despite a down year - Would you be happy with the production from these players in a down year as you say it? Many MLB players have a very similar OBP in MLB that they had as a...

    What does that mean for Buxtons rehab in CF? Does Buxton get work in RF or moved to AA on Monday to continue CF play?

    Good question!
    Walker is a career .308 OBP guy. Without knowing any of these players OBP this season, would you want them on your Twins (regardless to salary), based on a particular skill set or...

    That's a fair assessment. If you take away all the self runs (19) scored due to HRs, he is still leading team in RBIs by 4. Take away same 19 runs scored and he has 31 runs scored as opposed to his...
  24. What is the rationale for getting on base at a...

    What is the rationale for getting on base at a lesser rate than most (low OBP), but scoring more than most in the league? This again has been a pattern yearly and not a lucky phenomenon.

    if he...
