Two-way players are rarely seen in today’s Major League of Baseball. Though, there have been some incredible examples in our recent and ancient past. I’m talking about a player that can produce at a high level on both ends of the spectrum, and can be considered a legitimate pitcher and hitter in the Major Leagues.
The most revered legend of the game broke into the majors as a left-handed pitcher. His rookie stats

What is the meaning of life? Why are we all here? When looking for meaning in life, it is important to stay away from the “meaningless” list of Twins top prospects on MLB.com. That brings up another burning question: Who is ranking the Twins’ prospects on MLB.com?

Is it really 2013 already? Yes. And don't try to change the subject. We are talking baseball here, and no one cares that you've squandered all of 2012 worrying about doomsday prophecies.

Is anyone else as excited as I am about the Twins 3rd-round-pick last June? I am talking about the 97th overall selection named Adam Walker. This guy barely made the top 100 players drafted in 2012, but his initial return showed immense power promise. So much so, that I wanted to upset some people (and bring joy to others) by comparing him favorably to Giancarlo Stanton. Dang right people.

My cousin's boyfriend is the weather man! Long story...but my family did get him to say "unicorn" on the air. His mastery of meteorology inspries me, and I felt like taking a novice stab at forecasting something I enjoy talking about: Twins Prospects! Here is what I predict MLB.com's Twins prospect list will look like after this coming minor league season (Top 10 anyway)...
