View Full Version : Retired: the 2012 last years's Adopt-A-Prospect Threadt



Twins Daily Admin

Starting at 10AM CST on Monday 4/23, you can adopt a Twins prospect in this thread. Just put down the players name and submit it and THEN CHECK TO MAKE SURE NOBODY POSTED THAT NAME BEFORE YOU. If someone has, you didn't get that player, but it's not big deal - just submit another post with someone else's name - and then make sure nobody posted THAT name before you. Lather, rinse and repeat until you get a name that nobody else did.

Once you reserve a name, you can start a thread. Just title the thread the name of the prospect like "Miguel Sano." First post must be an introduction of the player. The format of the post is up to the individual, but please be sure to get all the important information needed on the player. For Example, Name, Position, Handedness, Drafted/Signed/Acquired (out of where/what round), Previous Stats, etc. Feel free to make it as detailed as you want. (There are a lot of websites you could link to such as their Baseball-Reference, The Baseball Cube, First Inning, Fan Graphs, etc.)

Ready, set, go....

There will be all sorts of demands for the Twins "Top 10" prospects, but I've decided to go the direction of someone who's a little more of an underdog... but with potential.

I'll select James Beresford, infielder with the Rock Cats.

This is great... I'm kind of surprised by some of the names, but that's alright... That said, I am going to take Miguel Sano. I figured he would have been gone long ago, and I had some backup names ready, but I'll be happy to adopt Miguel Sano.

I think some people were trying to avoid guys who already got looks in the majors, like Parmelee and Benson. This is a cool concept though.

I thought people were just trying to avoid a .185 AVG at Rochester and 17K's in 16 games! Joking aside I hope he turns it around quickly. If he doesn't though, Hicks is going to pass him in the OF call-up pecking order.

I might be less apt to go with him if he was in the Show now, but since he's back down in AAA and he's one of the bigger names...

Plus I met him at TwinsFest and told him I was rooting for his eventual call-up, so I this is a convenient excuse to follow his time in the minors closely.

51 players have been selected so far. This is terrific. I wasn't sure what to expect. Thank you for participating. If you haven't picked a prospect yet, consider this... there are four full-season Twins minor league affiliates. Each has 25+ (with DL people) on their roster. In other words, there are still another 50 full-season players looking for adoption... plus, there are a lot of guys in Extended Spring Training still. So, if you haven't selected someone yet, there are still a lot of options!

I wanted to put in a claim on Wilson Ramos but could not find him listed on any of the Twins' farm rosters.

He was traded in 2010 for Matt Capps. Everyone's hated it ever since

I'm a little surprised that no one has chosen Steven Hirschfeld (http://www.milb.com/milb/stats/stats.jsp?t=p_pbp&did=milb&pid=449176) yet.

I was close to adopting him before settling on Logan Darnell.

As it says in the rules, only people in the organization can be taken. We will be having a second "adoption" between the draft and the short-season's start in late June where draft picks and others can be taken.

And there are plenty of pitchers.

I would be happy to follow an individual and do a weekly write up. I thought I'd grab Ben Revere seeing as we played at the same HS, but he's taken, as is everybody I've ever heard of. Any suggestions, or can you just assign me one?

JaDamion (JD) Williams is at Beloit (and slowly coming around this year after a great year last year) and may be faster than Ben Revere.

Seth, would it be a big project to compile a list of who is available at this point?

Or if there was just a single list of every player in the Twins system and one could just use that full list and the list above?

Michael Gonzalez is one and Matthew Koch is another (as far as I can tell). They might actually be the two most promising available position players.

Alright, I told you there would be a Phase II to the Adopt-a-Prospect following the draft and as the short seasons begin... Let me take the next two days to clean up the current "Adoptees." I'll put together a list of who is adopted by whom. I need to go through and see who isn't keep up with updating at least every other week. Then we'll set it up to start on Thursday again. At that time, any players who are playing the Twins farm system will be eligible, and people can adopt a second player (third, if they have a player with the Twins).
