Regarding Baxendale...I'm bullish on his potential, too...
Let's just say I'm a big Baxendale future back-end SP backer.
Bux and Bax are going to be boffo...book it.

These are my favorite things to read before I go to bed every night. I make it my nightly reading. Absolutely love these write ups Seth and helps me keep my inner baseball nerd under control
Well, thank you! And, I'm glad I can help in any way. HA!
Starters and Hitters coming soon. Working those between draft articles this week.

How soon could we see Tonkin pitching for the Twins?
At this point, he could be an injury away. There aren't a lot of other 40 man roster options in the bullpen, certainly not with his kind of stuff... It'd be nice to get him a full month in Rochester and see how it goes. Looked good last night though!

In 6 games for Rochester he pitched 9.1 innings giving up 4 hits and 5 walks while striking out 11. He had several holds and did not allow a single inherited runner to score. All the while allowing only 1 unearned run for a 0.00 ERA. I think that makes him top 5 and arguably top 3 if he wasn't now a major leaguer.
