Cool! That's nice they got those. Can't disagree with any of the choices.

I think it's funny the Twins give an award for 'media good guy'.

Remember it is the media (Twin Cities chapter of the BBWAA) that votes for this, not the Twins.

This is the 3rd year in a row that a pitcher with no real big league future wins the minor league pitcher of the year award.

I don't know. I think that Perkins guy has a chance to be a pretty good big leaguer!
