    He struck out 172 times in 411 ABs. Sano has some issues with contact but Gallo's are much worse. He probably has more power than Sano actually, but his bat control is suspect.

    80 grade power is definitely rare. Though, it's not as rare as other tools being a legit 80. An 80 hit tool is something I don't remember seeing put on anyone in recent years. Or an 80 changeup,...

    Yes, that's it but it's a very big "it". The hit tool is the most transferable skill in baseball so you can't take it lightly when a guy like Sano, with all of the things he does really well...

    Yeah, he's probably the best "true" shortstop prospect in terms of being a no doubter to stick to the position, though I think most every scout would put his glove behind Jose Iglesias and almost...

    I'm actually impressed that Miguel ended the season with a .230 batting average. It was hovering around .100 for about the first two weeks.

    Sano's "low" ranking would probably have to do with some of the contact struggles he had in AA. It's a legitimate concern, because it will make or break his career.

    I also think Parks overvalues...

    So the guy who lead baseball in OPS 10 times was doing it wrong?

    Ted Williams could have sold out for more home runs at a net loss to his offensive production, no question but he was a smarter...

    I think it has just as much to do with his failing to hit very well in AA and there are doubts about him sticking at 2B.

    Huh? Mays certainly wasn't better from 20-22 I'm not sure how you could even argue that. Mickey Mantle is closer, he did lead the league in OPS his 20 year season but if you go by MVP voting, Trout...

    Stewart has the potential to be a #1 starter. He's a long ways from ready, but the talent is undeniable.

    Never particularly liked Mayo compared to the others guys in the business. A number of the amatuer scouts have said they didn't like Franco's swing mechanics when they saw him.

    It's a GRAND story arc. We haven't seen the end, with the books yet. I firmly believe that it will have a bitter sweet type of ending. There will be sacrifices made but I do think it will end on an...

    I used to think that, but I'm convinced that Breaking Bad is better. That said, of the two TV shows in this discussion, I would go with the Wire. Though the Sopranos is also one of the best TV shows,...

    I think a BJ Upton comp for Buxton is much closer to his absolute floor. I don't even see that though. Buxton is showing exceptional contact skills that BJ doesn't possess. (assuming that's the Upton...

    That sample size is so small that there's hardly any valuable information to get from it. Also he's hitting .400 so it's really not a big deal at the moment, especially when I read scouting reports...

    His name is Doug Mientkiewicz.

    Why stop at AA? Let's give him a tour of the entire Twins upper minors development system before reaching the bigs for his cup of coffee this year? :)

    Who's Dougie Mint? Anyway, I don't know he might be but it's a bit hard to tell at this point. Clearly he was too good for high A, a difficult hitters league so that's re-assuring. Just to throw a...

    I guess he needs to be promoted to the MLB to get something to hit.

    RISP will tell me how good a player is in clutch situations. RBI relies far too much on team performance.

    Mike Trout had 1312 plate appearances in the minor leagues before earning a big league promotion.

    Byron Buxton currently has 458, and will finish with a couple hundred more before the end of the...

    That could happen. Maybe a couple of those guys have nice careers for the Astros, but if Buxton truly becomes the next Trout then I'd consider that a loss for them.
