Travis asked me, “Do you know who else has Vargas’s body type?” Immediately, I responded, “David Ortiz.” We laughed at thinking the same thing, but it is true.
And then a tickle fight broke out...
Just kidding Seth. Great report. I have to get down there one of these days.

I doubt it would ever happen, but I think it would be wonderful if one of the farm teams setup shop in MN. Imagine if the Saints were replaced with a A or AA team and got their downtown St. Paul stadium, what a blast it would be to see Sano and other prospects right here in town.

I can't believe I haven't been there since they became the Twins affiliate. And I'm almost sure I won't this year, which is just stupid.
Come on over today! Jim Crikket's making the drive from Cedar Rapids. Jeremy Nygaard is here. It's a good time!

Just came home from Beliot. Watched the snappers play on Wednesday and saw Sano hit #21. His hits DO make a different sound! Zach Jones was very impressive as well. I watched as he consistent hit 97/98 on the scouts radar guns. His breaking pitch really had the scouts talking and making gestures to each other. Fun trip their, enjoyed it a lot. Seth, what can you tell us about the Jones kid?
Thanks for sharing! Sano has several hits these first two games. A couple of RBI singles last night. A double the night before. Rosario has five hits these last two games... and 11 hits in his last four games. Just unreal.
But yes, Zach Jones has everyone talking... 97/98, good breaking ball. Fourth round pick just this year. It's hard to believe he fell that far with what he's throwing up there now!! Hoping to see him pitch!!
