    I'm not expecting dominance at New Britain, although it wouldn't exactly surprise me. But I do wonder what is left for Berrios to learn in Ft. Myers.

    I think he's got to be on the verge of a promotion to Rochester. Of course I find that I'm much more optimistic about player's promotions than is warranted considering the Twins history. I'm not sure...

    Someone else mentioned that the Twins want him to pitch in the FSL first half playoffs. I would guess that as soon as the playoffs are done, he will be promoted. It's silly to keep him down,...

    Is it possible that Berrios goes up to AA to take Gilmartin's spot in the rotation?

    I really don't want a college reliever as a their 2nd round pick. I'm hoping they pick a prep pitcher.

    I've repeated that line before and I've seen it mentioned many times. But is there any kind of official confirmation on that?

    The slider is his best pitch and his out pitch, so the fact that he isn't throwing it and still nearly striking out 7 batters per 9 is impressive. I think they wanted him to work on his fastball...

    I had read that he wasn't throwing his slider at the beginning of the year, but I didn't know he was continuing to not throw the pitch. I wonder if they will let him throw it this year. Maybe they...

    He won't be available in the 2nd round. I was saying it might be worth it for the 5th overall pick. Especially if Aiken, Rodon, Kotek, and Jackson are all gone. Risky as all hell though.

    I would kind of like to see the Twins take a flyer and draft Hoffman. He was considered a consensus top-3 pick before TJ surgery, and as much as TJ surger scares me, a guy with his talent doesn't...

    It might be rough for a bit, but if Pinto is the catcher of the future than he needs more reps playing catcher. I'd dangle Suzuki at the trade deadline for something, a prospect and maybe a 4th...

    I'll be interested to see where he is at the all-star break. So far the BB/9 ratio is significantly better, but I would like to see it stick over half a season before I'm a believer. He's a guy who...

    A 20% k rate from a power hitter is pretty damn good to begin with. Even if he starts regressing towards that, anything below 20% from a hitter with his power is icing on the cake.

    Count me in on...

    He's still far from being a top prospect and you would normally hope to see his stats go up after a 3rd straight year in the same league. I do think that he will be promoted to AA in June with the...

    I had totally forgotten he had pitched in that. 120-130 IP sounds great as long as he still has the gas in August.

    His K/9 rate has been climbing steadily as well. His first three starts he had a k/9 rate under 5. The last three starts it's been around 9 k/9.

    I remember reading an article at the beginning of...

    I think it's a little early to say they missed on Eades. Lets see where he is in a month. It would be nice if he could dominate right away, but there's a reason he fell to the second round. I...

    Mauer has the 3rd highest career OPS of catchers through his 10 year career. If you go by career WAR he is the 12th best catcher already, and his 7 year peak 5th overall, behind Gary Carter, Johnny...

    Hopefully the errors are just early season jitters. Hopefully things calm down a bit for them and the game will start to slow down in the field.

    Great write up, it's always great to hear these little observations that you wouldn't otherwise ever hear about. How much getting in better shape (e.g. BSOHL stories) will make these some of these...

    Didn't Escobar have a great start to the season last year before he got injured? I was at the Tigers game last year where he hit the walk-off double. Seems like he could be a solid regular if he...

    I hope that they push him to Cedar Rapids in June, or whenever they are planning to unleash him. I'd be okay if he went to E-Town, only if he is going to be promoted very quickly if he shows he can...

    Someone asked the same question and this was Jason Park's response. I can't disagree with his reasoning too much, although I think (believe) that Sano will overcome the issues. I still think for his...
