Beyond the Limestone

The whimsical rantings of a displaced Twins fan. My writing combines my love for baseball and beer, sometimes with disastrous results.

  1. Down on the Pond, MiLB Prospect Profiles and Twitter Photos

    In my last Down on the Pond post I took a look at how the Twins players were doing down in the Arizona Fall League, and rather than look back in at how they're doing, or even taking a look at the guys who are playing Winter Ball around the Southern Hemisphere, I thought I'd use my position here on the Pond to share some photos that players throughout the Twins system posted to the Twitter machine and use that as a jumping off point to talk about some of the guys that are toiling down in the Twins ...

  3. Down on the Pond: Arizona Fall League

    The Twins sent seven of their minor league players to go play in the Arizona Fall League that kicked off earlier this month. Teams each send a handful of their prospects to play in Arizona and each year several teams join together and field a team for the AFL (6 team league located in, you guessed it, Arizona). The Twins players play for the Peoria Javelinas (a 40-80 pound skunk pig, for those of you who are curious you can check out the wiki page) who join with players from the Cincinnati Reds, ...

  6. Down on the Pond, Twins MiLB Awards - The Pitchers

    Who were the best pitchers in the Twins minor league system in 2012?

    Earlier this week I took a look at my predictions from this spring for who I thought would be the best minor league hitters in 2012 and who actually was. Today I'll look into the pitchers. See the predictions made by some of the other Twins bloggers here (position players) or here (pitchers).

  8. Twins MiLB Awards: Down on the Pond - The Hitters

    This post originally appeared at http://puckettspond.com/2012/10/01/d...s-the-hitters/

    The minor league seasons are all over. The prospects have played their final games (well, I guess officially the September call-ups still have 3 games left, but let's not get carried away) and the stats and progressions for 2012 are all in the books.
    Before the season began, several of the Twins bloggers, myself included, made some prognostications about who we thought ...
