    NEW ESPN Future Ratings Posted!!

    http://insider.espn.go.com/mlb/story...2012-nos-16-30

    Unfortunatley the twins have dropped from 25 to 26. I can't blame them as our farm system is void of pitching. If you could play baseball with 9 outfeilders, we would be number 1 in terms of future ratings.

    The fact that Jim Bowden is involved in this piece pretty much makes it worthless for me. I'm not trying to sound bitter about the Twins' ranking I just really think Bowden is an awful baseball writer/annalist.

    I second this. And third it as well.

    Putting aside Bowden, the score for management is really, really, really bad (I'm ignoring the majors score....). Management = ownership and front office and coaching staff. Even if Bowden gave them a zero, the others had to give them close to a zero to get that score. The Twins "minor" score, is their highest score by far. By far.

    Buster Olney and Keith Law are very respectable ANALYSTS. I can't see any reason why the Twins should be higher. I know we have a lot of hope for the minor league system, but the fact is we have stud outfield prospects. Which is sad because our best pro unit is also our outfield. We have 1 non outfield prospect above rookie ball and that is Rosario, and he used to be an outfielder. We need pitching and middle infield help even in the lower levels.

    Yet I don't see how we only get a 15 out of 30 for our finances. We have a new ballpark and plenty of revenue to go around. Unless they take into account the Cheap-ad's running the baseball team with as little money spent on payroll as possible. I am having a very down twins day We need to trade away anything of value and start over next year. God knows we will look for some cheap stop gaps for big-league pitching. My guess is Bartolo Colon is brought in with a minor league deal. Why not bring in Melky while were at it. We could use more outfielders. Trade Span, Morny, Carrol(for a handjob and bar of soap), and some relievers for young pitching prospects. YOur welcome Twins nation for the words of wisdom.

    The Twins finances are low because of their very low media deals, I'd guess.

    After contrasting the Twins' deal with the Padres' in another thread, I'd probably agree. We're not a huge media market, but there's no way that San Diego is nearly twice our size.
