    So humble. I don't know how you can't be a JO fan after reading this.

    I like his answer to what his strengths are: "the strikeouts."

    Seems like a very coachable, professional kid.

    Thanks Seth!

    I've read in a lot of places scouts/FO types commenting on Berrios work ethic and training (along with stuff). That's great to see and it's good to see Berrios mentioning it himself. I really like this guy, hope he makes it.

    The only thing not to like about this kid is his terrible taste in movies.

    He is still a starter though right? Nice article...I like that he wants to strikeout people.

    As Jo sez, he is "learning every day"... maybe someone going to Twins Fest could set him up with a schwag bag of the good movies?

    Love his attitude though, look forward to seeing his stuff.
    Feel free to pile on about Suzuki.

    This caught my eye as well. Very concerning...

    I met him in Cedar Rapids last year. Seems like a nice young man. I thought his English was pretty good. He is still very young. I hope he takes big steps forward this year.

    Ping pong is a great sport for people that relocate a lot. Jo sounds like a good young man with a solid plan. Get better at striking people out.

    Good read -- thanks, Seth!

    If he starts in the FSL this year, he'll enter that league 16 days younger than Miguel Sano (who was the youngest in that league on Opening Day last year). Even if he doesn't move to Ft Myers until a little later in the year, he'll still be one of the youngest players in the league. I hope he can live up to the challenge!

    I am impressed with not only Berrios attitude and eagerness to improve but also that of Meyer and May. Who else of the young pitchers has impressed anyone with their attitudes?

    To be fair: Major League: Back to the Minors does tell the tale of a scrappy bunch of minor leaguers who take on--and out perform--a grumpy, woebegone set of Minnesota Twins.

    Maybe JO isn't as much a fan of the cinematic qualities as he is of its ability to predict his/our future (a glorious future where Bob Ueker is our announcer and Scott Bakula is our coach)

    Run and hide Kevin Corriea, run and hide.

    I remember the day that Jose moved into the house. The conversation went something like this: "Jose, what do you like to eat?" A long pause and Jose says "I no eat shrimp. They make me go POOF!" So needless to say, he didn't eat shrimp. He loves cookie and cream ice cream and he is an EARLY riser. 1st to bed after the baseball game and dinner and was always up by the time I left for work in the morning. He was a joy to have him my home and I wish him nothing but happiness and success.

    Thanks Seth

    Keep thinking that signing Johan would be worth it just to see if Jose could learn his change up and pitching style.

    I would guess that being in CR was a tough adjustment for the him. First time away from the Ocean in a sea of Iowans.
    Poor kid.
    Hope he improves and works on his durability so he can get more innings.

    Let me second about Johan teaching Berrios his changeup and pitching style - how awesome would that be!!

    Maybe that's it- Jo is already into to program with the Twins org. and so chooses this one. Not a bad sign.

    Didn't want to derail the thread into a movie discussion, but since I've already made my comments, and this thread seems to have quieted down...

    1) Any Major League installment without Charlie Sheen is not worth watching (they all have Uecker);
    2) Precisely because we want Jo to succeed, becoming acquainted with Charlie Sheen and his er, lifestyle, Twitter, & er (again), lifestyle habits, etc. early on might not be a bad thing.
    3) I'm overseas now, but if I was in MN, I would totally set him up with a bag of great BB movie DVDs- to "show the love".

    In all reality, I would prefer that he not play ping pong. I play a decent amount of ping pong and I have intermittent shoulder problems, as do some of the people that I play with.

    Is it just me, or are there a disproportionate number of baseball movies that feature the Minnesota Twins in some way? This one, Angels in the Outfield, even Moneyball...
