    Did you hear Paul Molitor's comments? Sounds like Buxton could force a call-up next year if he tears up AA-AAA to start 2014...

    Very much looking forward to this young man joining the Twins.

    Seems like a kid with character. Minnesota fans are going to love him.

    I hope so too. Here I am focused on one team, while the MLB.com people have an entire league to worry about.

    I like how you think mnfanforlife. Why would anyone think he couldn't improve? I hope MLB.com rethinks thier rankings before years end.

    I would highlight current major-leaguers, but it's tough to find bright spots right now.

    You're back! I always enjoy your positive reports. It's nice to read about the future and learn about these future Twins.

    Well, we do have Superman. He should be in AA this coming spring.

    Yeah Carlos was bush yesterday after his 1st inning homer. But, Atlanta (mainly Chris Johnson) was bush after Jose Fernandez hit his 1st career blast and watched it for about 1 second.

    The Twins are LIFELESS this year. I would rather see Gomez starting brawls, than Plouffe and Parmelee calmly soothing each other and talking about how they can't hit. (Both 1st rd picks)

    That being what it is....I would rather have Hardy over Carlos too.

    I would rather the Twins had kept JJ Hardy. Cannot fully express how annoyed I was when the Twins tossed him aside.

    As evidenced yesterday, part of Gomez will always be bush league.

    I give you an A!

    I'm a notoriously nice guy, though.

    Hey! This article compares Walker to Stanton....and here is a quote from MLB.com's Twins top-20 list about Walker: " His body type and power potential remind some of Giancarlo Stanton, a fellow former second-rounder, and the Twins wouldn't complain if that's what Walker becomes"......! Only problem is that Walker was a 3rd round pick, not 2nd

    Looks like Adam Walker will be top-20 following this season. Maybe even top-10.

    all losing eta in 2013? I guess we'll see. It could be accurate.
    Dead accurate

    At least one person had the foresight to list Z. Jones and Baxendale in the top-20 of Twins prospects. This list was intended to be the MLB.com top-20 list. Not a perfect prediction, but passable.

    Jones is dealing at A+ this year, and still not on MLB's top-20 list. Neither is Baxendale. Whoever is running that page is not "on-top" of stuff.
  19. mnfanforlife's Avatar
    Wow, this is STILL relevant. Would much rather see these four guys than Vance Worley, Kevin Correia, and ? Pelfrey.

    Agreed. Hicks has a much higher ceiling than both Benson and Mastro. But why rush Hicks when he can stay in AAA til June, and secure another year of team control.

    Arcia is a better all -around hitter, but Hicks and Oswaldo will both serve vital roles in the 2014 line-up.
