Ha, mutated! I love it.
I can feel the love for Eddie. May he travel his Rosa Rio quickly...and divert his waters to Target Field
Rosario is the best. A Jack of all trades!
Arcia is very promising, and he should already be in Minnesota when Sano and Rosario arrive together. Can't wait. Should be a nice influx
I am the most optimistic about Arcia & Rosario, in that order.
Of course, I sure hope Sano winds up being all he's hyped up to be.
My #1 twins prospect!
Saw the pics of Eddie - post surgery. It takes a special guy to get back out there and play again. He has a smooth, very fast swing. He is smart and polite and represents the organization well.
He tore up winter ball, and the idea of Eddie and Sano arriving in the MLB simultaneously to start 2015 is intriguing!
Fangraphs did an interview with Ryan O'Rourke, one of Rosario's teammates, who described Rosario as having the quickest hands he's ever seen.
Thanks for this article. It is important to get some perspective on what he did last year and how it really isn't a drop off from 2011 when advancing a level. 2015 should be the time for him to contend for that starting spot.
He is a dangerous 170 lb. hitter
I like Rosario a lot. He feels like a classic overachiever; someone who always exceeds expectations and puts up better numbers than many are anticipating.

Harrison at third looks like his shoes weigh ten pounds each, and he will be a total sucker for change-ups the way he lunges forward in the box.
Agreed on both. 2013 will be interesting for these two. Cedar Rapids all year?

Yes John, one paragraph of my blog entry was dedicated to that very point you tried to make.
Oh man...we need more stuff to burn
Worley should be better than Esmerling. But that's it.
Remember, this was posted in November....before any of the trades or FA signings of 2013. How can this still be relevant? Did we get anyone better than these four that is MLB ready?
Dont forget Harrison and Kepler. They're big, and their power will show up once they reach their mid-20's. Could be a damm good line-up by 2016-2017
Hey - he was only 20 in Appy and will be 21 for all of A ball. He was a young college kid. If he can keep up his production from league to league - He will be fine. As a 20 year old he was Top 5 in HRs / RBIs / Runs / TBs / SLG % (7th) / & Triples. He does need to drop K %, but I will take other category rankings every year. Between Sano; Vargas; DJ Hicks & Walker - The Twins are getting big and powerful quickly.
