Not a joke, just a play in words... I was referring to a militant (guerrilla) and not to an ape (gorilla)

Great name and I'm sure he'll become my favorite prospect in no time.
Not to pick nits, but Santana was a rule V selection from I believe Houston... He may have come through Venezuela, but not via the Twins.
Goodrum was drafted with raw tools (impressive ones) and nobody had any idea if he would develop into a solid fielder or a solid hitter. Early speculation was that the defense wouldn't really develop and the Twins could fall back on just letting him loose in CF. After 2 Appy league seasons there is more confidence but I'm guessing that in July fetch was still reading last season's scouting report. I like Polanco more overall but it was Goodrum that was the SS in ETown so that should say something about his skills since Polanco is a pretty good fielder.
