I'm planning on going down to Spring Training next weekend. Can anybody post the minor league game schedule (on here) so my friends and I can figure out where we need to be to follow the right teams...

Do Spring Training at bats mean much or should we be very pleased thus far with the success our young prospects are having hitting in MLB camps.
Pinto; Kepler; Santana; Polanco; Vargas; Buxton; etc....

On that note of who determines the "Line" for attitude. I was wondering - What is the average time frame for making it around the bases after a home run? 17 seconds - 20 seconds -23 seconds - 26...

Baseball Amerrica - 13 Ranked Twins Prospects for 2014 http://twinsdaily.com/images/misc/progress.gif
Buxton #1 (Top 30 CF in Minors)

With our organizational outfield depth being one of our bright spots:
Lets fantasize that each prospect and current 25 man roster outfielder reaches their potential. Who are the outfielders of...
No Walker :) lol
TOP 30 Prospect Rankings 2014
1. Byron Buxton (Called up in September - handles struggles)
2. Miguel Sano (MLB starter by July)
3. Alex Meyer (MLB Starter off and on in 2014)
4. Kohl Stewart...

Of the Top 30 HR hitters in MLB last year - 15 had higher K rate than 21%
Would you take any of these guys:
Chris Davis 30% - .370 OBP
Pedrto Alverez 30% - .296 OBP
Mark Trumbo 27% - .294 OBP...

It wasn't his (Walker) lack of contact, but his lack of luck with BABIP. Polanco didn't walk much either (11 more times than Walker), but had better average and OBP because that.

People talk about Adam Brett Walker having continued strikeout issues (which hampers his ranking status) - but I question you guys:
How many Minor League players or MLB players (in 2013) had a K...

I like your lineup. I think guys like JD Williams and Dalton Hicks will be up in New Britian before July as well - along with several of the 2013 Cedar Rapids guys. Then the question becomes where...

Could not have said it better. Let's look at all the guys who play winterball:
Do they seem to hit the wall during thier full seasons?
I predict a monster year for Hicks for just that...

AARON HICKS on his decision not to play winter ball:
“I thought a little about it, but I felt like it would be better for me to relax and think about stuff I need to do and get ready for another...

I would love to see that too. Let's get that going for a Spring Training BP. Walker would have to be able to go up with the big boys for that one though (Hammond Stadium BP).
01-23-2014, 02:49 AM
If the Twins have any outfielder who has a chance to be a Josh Hamilton Comp - It would be Walker (Size - Free Swinger - Power - Range - Production as a run producer). Not Benson. He just needs to...
01-21-2014, 11:53 AM
I can see all three moving up to AAA during 2014 season.
Danny Ortiz (LF), Byron Buxton (CF), Mike Kvasnicka (RF)
I can see JD Williams. Roberts and possibly Walker moving to AA during 2014...

As you look at your roster projections: Who are some guys that could block a mid season promotion from the lower levels if they played well?
Example: If Nate Roberts plays well at Fort Myer -...

Baseball America had Adam Brett Walker II as the #31 ranked prospect in last years handbook. He was only listed if you received the extra prospect edition (Top 30 + 1). I told folks last year that...

I think this is a better idea and gives viewers a better view of who is playing at a higher level within their respective league. Most of these honors are voted on by league managers or GMs - That...

I would agree with you on Gibson (forgot about him). I would replace him with May. I also like Dozier at SS if he can handle it long term. That would make for an even greater line up.

Does anyone know when Rochester contract expires? Forgive me if I might have missed comments on that earlier?

01-01-2014, 01:57 PM
My 2015 or 16 Playoff and More Line-up:
1) Byron Buxton CF (the next Rickey Henderson)
2) Eddie Rosario 2B (hit & run contact hitter)
3) Joe Mauer 1B (will become a RBI threat in 3 hole)...
01-01-2014, 01:15 PM
Kepler is a very solid outfielder and can be a better than average 1st baseman with his athleticism and size. That being said: What do the Twins do as a system with Vargas; Hicks; M. Gonzalez; &...

He's a richer version of Matt Thomshaw. Great location with low 90s fastball. Thomshaw has several pitches and knows how to locate. Although we may be getting away from the "Pitch to contact"...
