    Walks aren't 'fun'...but I will say, the patience of the Twins hitters as well as not diving after that low and away slider (Torii Hunter re-runs in my mind) is rather refreshing. This team has...

    I don't think those projections are anything 'unusual'...as your question was that.

    The difference with some is they feel he won't get there.

    Keith Law feels he will.

    I do too.

    In the running for a GG each year defensively.

    He'll never be a leadoff hitter for long in this organization with Buxton's permanence in MLB probably starting in 2016, if not sometime in 2015.

    My thinking is along these lines too.

    I think Hicks, Arcia, Meyer, Pinto, etc should start in MLB, assuming they all start.

    I would put Kubel, Bartlett, and any of the poorly performing...

  6. Top Prospects Who Survived 1st Spring Training Cuts (Baez, Correa, Springer)

    I was wondering if any of you guys knew websites for best keeping track of which top prospects were still in on the MLB spring training roster.

    Or a place to see current MLB rosters (would be a...

    AAA is worse than AA in the opinion of David Ortiz and many MLB players. The mentality is different and you get guys throwing 87-90 mph iwth a lot of junk.

    Better to be in AA and see a 95-98 mph...

    You also need to more heavily weigh games post injury and most recent games. He's not 25 anymore and he's not pre-ankle injury.

    Those numbers are long gone...

    AAA is largely an irrelevant step for getting to the bigs. It's a place holder often for marginal MLB talent.

    If you asked all 30 MLB teams out there if they'd rather have their roster of AAA...

    Good stuff Parker.

    Yeah, when I heard Law say that about his foot, I was like "whaaaaa?" as I saw Buxton highlights from Ft. Myers and 2 games in the AFL, and he still seemed to pull the back leg...

    I see Mo Vaughn getting some 80 grade powers, he did hit 40 HR. Tino had a 70 grade by some.

    Dave, I agree as well.

    What's 'worse case scenario' of Sano in the bigs? A Rob Deere-esque .235-245-ish, 150-170 strikeouts with 28-35 bombs at the MLB level?

    Some might say that would...

    For the subjective:

    It's too early to give up on Florimon. He can get better. And I believe he will be better than he was last year.

    To someone with more validity than myself: Fangraphs

    And because Thrylos and Willihammer are learking nearby, the advanced metrics.

    (though, they could surely provide more)

    Sano's BABIP is the lowest of the bunch. And it's quite low.
