Travis asked me, “Do you know who else has Vargas’s body type?” Immediately, I responded, “David Ortiz.” We laughed at thinking the same thing, but it is true.
And then a tickle fight broke out...
Just kidding Seth. Great report. I have to get down there one of these days.

I doubt it would ever happen, but I think it would be wonderful if one of the farm teams setup shop in MN. Imagine if the Saints were replaced with a A or AA team and got their downtown St. Paul stadium, what a blast it would be to see Sano and other prospects right here in town.

I thinkl Sioux Falls is out of the running due to geography. Long way to drive from Cedar Rapids, much less Fort Wayne.
Rochester is much closer to the rest of the Midwest.

I can't believe I haven't been there since they became the Twins affiliate. And I'm almost sure I won't this year, which is just stupid.
Come on over today! Jim Crikket's making the drive from Cedar Rapids. Jeremy Nygaard is here. It's a good time!

Just came home from Beliot. Watched the snappers play on Wednesday and saw Sano hit #21. His hits DO make a different sound! Zach Jones was very impressive as well. I watched as he consistent hit 97/98 on the scouts radar guns. His breaking pitch really had the scouts talking and making gestures to each other. Fun trip their, enjoyed it a lot. Seth, what can you tell us about the Jones kid?
Thanks for sharing! Sano has several hits these first two games. A couple of RBI singles last night. A double the night before. Rosario has five hits these last two games... and 11 hits in his last four games. Just unreal.
But yes, Zach Jones has everyone talking... 97/98, good breaking ball. Fourth round pick just this year. It's hard to believe he fell that far with what he's throwing up there now!! Hoping to see him pitch!!
