My favorite nickname in all of baseball. My reason for clicking as well. I just love the old time creativity. "Rajah" Hornsby is another one I really like.

Looks a lot like BJ Upton in his batting practice swing. I'm excited about both him and Berrios. Along with Sano and Rosario they form a good core of players at the low levels and there are others also. It lends a lot of support to the notion that the Twins should be aiming to build a contender for two or three years out. No wonder that Seth Stohls is one such advocate of the Twins taking that approach right now, he knows their minors as good as anyone who writes about it.

Thanks for the post. I'm excited to see what he can do. I hope his power continues to develop.

I saw some video of him taking BP this offseason. Wow!! What a strong, quickly, powerful swing.

Is there any way to share that video with the community here? Thanks!

Yes, and with two LHH's (Kepler and Rosario) moving up together with Buxton and Sano...the Twins could someday sport a middle-of-the-order something like this: 2. Buxton 3. Rosario 4. Sano 5. Kepler...maybe Hicks leads off and Arcia bats 5 instead of Kepler. This is all years down the road. Even Arcia and Hicks could take a year or two to arrive

One of my favorites is "Old aches and pains" Luke Appling. Gotta love that.

Even his pop-up at the end of the clip ended up in the seats.

You betcha Teddy! I have seen this scouting video a bunch of times, and every time I see it I am awed at what he can do. His arm or his speed is probably the most impressive tool right now...But that flash of power potential definitely got him the #1 prospect status going into the draft. Just a miracle that the Twins had him available to draft really

Does anyone think the Twins will draft a non-pitcher at #4 this June?

Sure. If that is the best player available. Early lists have 3 of the top 4 prospects as pitchers so right now it looks like a pitcher but obviously a lot can change.

The two high-school SS's look legit. Think we might get one of those guys ahead of their projected slot?

With Buxton's talent, anything is possible! Anyone see Bux making it out of low-A next summer?
