6 o'clock - - hilarious...i am going to use that one.
Thanks for the interesting tid-bits!
These five guys (Seth's 21-25) could all be major big-league contributors some day. At least, the potential is there for them.
And if the Twins 21-25 are loaded with that much potential....well geez. We should be good soon
What's wrong with Zack Jones in the AFL? I know, small sample size, but he's been pretty bad. Any idea what's up there?
I wouldn't read into it any more than Small Sample Size... That said, if you look at his walk rate during the season in Ft. Myers and his walk rate in just 5 innings in the AFL, you might find what his biggest issue is, certainly the reason he wasn't promoted to New Britain during the season.
He'll be fine.
agreed, Zach Jones is still really young, and even if he walks 4 per nine in the bigs...he will be an effective 1-inning guy.
Waiting impatiently for 16-20. What's the ETA on them?
How did we get our 24th best prospect for Butera? was he ever considered this high of a prospect?
You guys do realize that, as a short lefty with a sore shoulder in low-A ball, he has about 1% chance of ever having a significant major league career? Would you rather find $100 bill on the sidewalk or a PowerBall ticket? And if you find a PowerBall ticket and I only find the $100 bill are you also going to dance and wave it in my face? What about the second time around?
This ended up coming out wrong, but what I really wanted to say is that you may not always want to trade for the longshot, high upside guy... either based upon situation (e.g. when you don't have a defensive-minded catcher on your staff of Cy Young hopefuls as LA did) or need (e.g. you need a guy who can give you some innings in the Majors right away).
I think in this situation, the fact that you could get a longshot high upside guy for Butera is astounding. I was shocked they got something other than a bucket of baseballs.
