The need to add another short season league in the worst way. Either NYPL or NWL or something.
I think this is the right answer. The Twins and the Braves have tradionally fielded strong teams in the Appy League as neither org has a team between this advanced rookie league and Low A.

Stupid error by typing too fast.....knew that but my mistake
Steve Liddle 50ABs .360/.441/.520---only reason still in org is his dad (MN 3rd base coach)
Not his dad. Father played baseball at Lipscomb ... Uncle, also named Steve, is the bench coach for the Minnesota Twins
pretty much no low level minor league numbers can be trusted. Plus you're talking about an extremely small sample of at bats
Dont agree as you can start trusting numbers once low A starts.....tried to give most players 100ABs @ ELIZ, but some stood out.
Arcia, Rosario & Sano are only ones ,IMO, as they were 18/19yrs old.....but none were even remotelly close to their ELIZ numbers cause the numbers cannot be trusted
There is absolutely no reason for a 21 yr old college guy to be in ELIZ for a full yr

Even 100-150 ABs is a relatively small sample size,
No question, but the only data I (we) have to go on.
Agree AA is the league to actually judge a player. For MN, Ft Myers is such a great pitchers league....that is hard also, but if you can hit there......
There are 5 players in ELIZ, this yr, who are 19/20 who are right age to judge.....Walker, Harrison, Goodrum, Polonco & Keplar. 21 yr olds are too old & cant be judge there till Beloit.
