    In today's fangraphs chat:
    "Which prospect would you put more stock in: Bubba Starling or Max Kepler? Both have athleticism for days, Kepler currently has better numbers and is also a year younger but is also repeating the level........ "
    Newman: "I'd rather have Kepler. Hands down."

    Pretty interesting. Starling was BA #24 after he was picked 5th in the loaded 2011 draft.

    Yeah, I linked the fangraphs guy b/c that was the first time I'd seen someone suggest Kepler higher than Starling (and later in the chat he suggested Buxton was a lot higher than Starling). I don't think Kepler will be on any top 100 lists next year but it's good to see him get some recognition. Nice season for a lot of Twins prospects this year.
