    Thanks for the link. Kepler has a real simple, clean swing. And that was a bomb!

    Great write-up, thanks!

    One question - (assuming Appel somehow drops and is available for the twins) - Is there any other reason (besides his agent being Scott Boras) that people think it's going...

    So last year Appel fell to the 8th pick? If this year he goes on the 4th pick (unlikely, but that's the scenario we're discussing) does he really think it will be worth it play a year of indy ball,...

    I agree, I was just posting on what I saw in one game. The kid has fire, he wants to win. He was pissed at the errors, but I don't know that he was pissed at the defenders. Could have just been...

    I'll also say that if he's available I hope the twins get him. If the plan is to contend in 2015/16/17, I don't think there is a player in the draft that would help more than Appel....

    Agree. I don't see how Boras can demand over slot money. How does he put himself in a better position by holding out and delaying his big payday another year? If things go well, he could potentially...

    Assuming Gray and Appel are off the board, if Bryant is there the Twins have to take him, especially since he's righthanded. Hopefully either he or Sano can stick at 3B. Worst case, neither sticks at...

    I saw his last start in CR. He gave up quite a few hits, and while some were more well placed than well struck, quite a few were hit well. But one thing you won't see in the box score is how he...

    I don't really remember seeing a throw by Polanco, maybe I was getting a beer and missed it. I'm just saying he looked confident and comfortable at SS. I've seen the opposite - Pimentel at 2B, like...

    No. You don't use the 4th overall pick on a player with limited upside, not with Kohl Stewart on the board. If they want to take the safe route, take Shipley. Plus, things are lining up for the Twins...

    Went to a Kernels Game....

    I took the family down to a CR Kernels game on Saturday. We were going to go Sunday too but it got rained out. Random observations from someone who hasn't played since high school, and wasn't very...

    I think Riverbrian and I are saying the same thing. He says whichever team gets hot wins. I say it's pretty much random who wins. I guess it's obvious that which ever team gets hot wins. I think it's...

    I'd be interested in seeing where that ends up after crunching the data. One tough thing about the playoffs is that you could play between 3 games and 19 games assuming no play-in games. You could go...

    I have a way to quantify the concept. Players who have world series rings have "it" and players who don't don't. BUT - "it" is only good for the year you won it, not for the future.

    Just look at...

    Ok, let's look at strikeouts, in my book the best measure of "dominating stuff". Let's compare the team that won the world series to the other 3 teams that made the playoffs from their league in each...

    Oy. Just thought of those Butera at catcher days with Dozier, Florimon and Butera batting 7-8-9. There should be an asterisk on the opposing pitcher's ERA, not sure he deserves one full IP for...

    He'd have more value as a trade candidate if he was under control for an extra year....

    The other thing to think about is that he never played in Rochester. At a certain point, the Red Wings are...

    IMO, it is all about just getting to the playoffs. Once you're there, you might get hot and make a run. I'd argue that a look at the recent world series winners shows you just have to get there.

    That looks like a 65 win roster to me. I hope they keep Hicks down for a few months to gain another year of service from him, no need to lose that year of control when he probably won't be that huge...

    A few things I noticed from the list - there were only six 80 (the highest ranking) given out, and two are Twins prospects.

    Gerrit Cole's (Pirates P) Fastball
    Miguel Sano's Power
    Byron Buxton's...

    I've never been to Beloit, but I saw the Snappers play the Cedar Rapids Kernels back in June. Great facility, and an hour closer to the twin cities than Beloit, only 2.5 hours for me. Player access...

    I do not understand how players can be in someone's system for 2+ years and still be described as "skinny". It is not hard to put on weight, muscle or fat. I'm making an assumption that Jenkins would...

    I'm going to be positive and note he had an RBI double in one of his two at-bats.
