Polanco is on the 40 man roster so that escalates his time frame. And his so / bb is insanely good - especially when you consider his age. Ryan has said he stays at SS and if he does well there, he...

Fun read. Did he have anything of interst to say on the twins regional scout? Players on the KY team must get excited when he is in town.

1 He was the best pitcher on the worst staff.
2 He had a track of pitching poorly.
3 Most of the complaints was not the signing but giving him a second year. So if he repeats his...

After reading the latest from Wolfson at 1500 I am thinking it might be empty rhetoric. It has some pessimistic indicators. Hopefully they are just playing games with agents.
According to espn.com the Twins are telling agents they are not interested in giving up their 2nd round pick. This takes two potential guys off the list further narrowing the field.

Thankfully Pinto's track record shows a career .790 OPS and the last two full seasons an .800+ OPS. Questions remain about his defense but some of the reports I have seen show that he is improving...

Floyd - Please no.
If he wasn't coming off TJ surgey, it would be OK. But I do not want another spring training hearing about how good he looks only to watch him struggle followed by quotes like...

Berardino needs some perspective:
Herrmann played 12 games
Pinto has played 7 games
There is no useful data from that sample. - especially since the players don't really have a spring to get...

Are these downloadable for audio only?
I can't watch them live

Hope you are right. I have never looked at runs scored as anything meaningful. I usually just ignore it right away. Maybe you are on to an underlooked stat, but I will leave that investigation to...

Yikes, a healthy, motivated and pissed off Fielder could have a monster year in TX. I'm glad he is out of the central, but it probably means Detroit will spend big on the starting rotation which is...

Has a trade like this ever happened before? After racking my brain, I can't remember a team trading a guy Back to an organization for another guy.
Did the MLB ownership group work out some kind...

I grabbed a few of those names on this list
Walker OB% was .319 - not good
McGuire in A ball was .393
Buhner was .392
Sexson as a 19 Year old in A ball was .338
High K% and even a Low BB% is...

1 - Vargas
2 - Harrison
3 - Walker
3 - Hicks
At the start of the off-season I said if Vargas was added to the 40 man he could get a shot a at 1B sometime around July or August in 2014. -...

I'm most suprised about Vargas.
I think the twins feel even if someone takes Achter they have enough similar talents it doesn't matter. But I dont think he will be taken
11-20-2013, 07:25 AM
I am not sure I have ever seen "runs scored" as a stat to evaluate a prospect especially one with a bad OB %.
For me, I'm not sure what you mean by "comps" as his K% & BB% are not good and red...

I guess the below guys stand a chance to be added or risk being taken:
Polanco - Surely
Kepler (maybe - But there is little chance he could stick on a 25 man roster unless he gets stashed with a...

No need for skepticism. Just because there hasn't been formal offers put out there doesn't mean they are not talking numbers. I would guess we have a lot of agents waiting for first deals to get out...

Agree with you on Kepler. One of the few good things about his AFL performance was his ability to take walks despite seeing a quality of pitcher he has never seen before. This is a positive...
Why? What has he done to be factored in?
He has already been passed by Santana, and he did nothing to deserve a promotion. His play shows he deserves to be sent down to CR next year.
11-18-2013, 09:24 PM
I wouldn't say depth, I would say question marks. Twins could go from a Top Tier system to a mid-tier system next year if some of the CR all-stars don't do well. The current top 4 or 5 guys would...
I am in China and can view the website fine

I wonder why Herrmann isn't getting steam as an option at catcher. He caught 80 games in 2012 and 67 total between the MLB and AAA last year.
I am getting tired of seeing the below, and fans buying into it:
What team isn't wary of a bad contracts? Bad contracts are the risk of FA, just like missing on a draft pick is the risk of...

Good for Joe
Best for his long term future and family.
Big bummer for the team though.
His "value" goes down significantly and it makes his contract much too high
