    If the All Star teams were truly just chosen on current year performance, then he would have a great argument that Perkins should be in no matter what. To say that Perkins is top 5 muddies the waters...

    Well for me it is good timing, I am going to the game tomorrow with some business associates from out of town and was going to be reviewing the options as they wanted to eat at the game.

    So could someone explain why they think Appel will sign for something way over slot? He has so little leverage. I am not saying you low ball the guy but I would not pay over slot and no way I pay...

    There has been a lot of discussion about Hicks and team control, what about Arcia? In other words, if he does stay up without going back down to the minors, would he have spent enough time at...

    I want Appel but if it means taking a bunch cheap options in later rounds then I would pass. There are too many good prospects to effectively put so many eggs in one basket. I would rather play it...

    370K but i am not sure if counted toward the prior year since they signed him in Jan 2012.

    I hope they spend their full allotment again in 2013. My understanding is that our cap will be higher this year due to the W-L record in 2012. Some fans have been very disappointed in the lack of...

    For those interested, milb.com had a nice article on Max last week. Excerpt:

    Kepler was offered a tennis scholarship at the Steffi Graf Foundation at 7, but after competing intensely for three...

    I agree with what you are saying and I am not as upset about the lack of high end FA signings as many Twins fans are, but logical next step is that the Twins should not sign anyone next year either....

    So Hicks moves up a level and increases his OPS by 122 points and moves down 39 spots?? I realize the Eastern league is more hitter friendly but not by that much. What would it have taken him to...

    I think your first point is the one that many here underestimate: it must be pretty frustrating for season ticket holders right now. While I would be in favor of trading Morneau for good price, I...

    I agree, I don't see the benefit of piling on when someone turns out to be wrong.

    Nice article, it was interesting to read. A few thoughts/questions:

    1) Does it take into account stolen bases?

    2) I wonder how much SSS impacts this calculation, even for players with 600 PA....

    Obviously hope that one or two of these guys continue to improve and make it to the majors, but that list is brutal in terms of high (or even solid) upside guys. Think about the question posed at the...

    With the crazy numbers that Rosario put up last year and Arcia the year before, it is overlook Kepler's really good year. His 925 ops was 2nd in the league (Jorge Polanco was third!) and his .539...

    I agree, don't understand why he doesn't get another chance. The funny thing is, I think he would fail in the majors, but it seems to me that his performance has been so good at AAA that he has...

    He has to be a ton better on offense, and their is no speculative about it. Casilla is a damn solid MI, Mastro is not.

    Yea it is worth a shot after Span comes back and certainly after Rochester is done when I would think that Parmelee would be recalled. Moving Mastroanni would allow him to both get AB and see if he...

    I like your basic point: trade high on a player instead of waiting for them to fall down and then trading low. I just think most others will believe he is going to fall back and so the return for...

    It will be fun to see how they do at this next level up. I check the box scores but had apparently not clicked through to Berrios' overall numbers so I did not realize how amazing he has been: 16 2/3...

    I think this is a good list, in general I would rank the guys below A ball lower as the disappointment rate between E town and Beloit is really high. However I am far more excited about the system...

    I saw it today, good movie. The comparisons to Hoop Dreams are valid on several levels. What made Hoop Dreams somewhat more compelling was that it followed the main players for several years so you...
