I like these five.There is a real separation between them and the other 35 in my reading.What concerns me is the ability of the Twins to get them to the big leagues with success.It was not long ago we had Sano, Buxton, Berrios in that top slot position and so far we have succeeded with one of them.
I think we need a review of the system that is in place and start evaluating whether it is as good as we need.
Explain what you mean by 'we need a review of the system that is in place"?
For evaluation, or for the Twins?
I know that part of Jeff Pickler's job description is a liason between development and the big leagues and working through that process. I don't 'know what that involves completely, but adding a coach and putting that in the job description certainly is a positive.
And, I don't 'know if it's' fair to say that Sano hasn't' panned out. I mean, he's' had two really good seasons out of 3 1/2 including a very deserving all star nod last year. We can''t' forget that as part of his story.
And, while Buxton hasn't become what we thought offensively, he's been everythign we could want defensively.
I still believe both will be long-time productive big leaguers again soon.
And also, ,with any prospect in baseball, whether he's a #1 overall prospect, a #11 overall prospect or #101 prospect... you never know. It's far from a perfect science, even with the advanced analytics.
