    Name this prospect

    Anyone want to play a game? I'll paste a small write up on a player currently in the minors and considered a prospect. First person to name him gets a point. I'll track pts. standings for fun.


    There are a lot of reasons why XXXXX, the XXXXX overall pick in the 2011 Draft, is the No. XXXXX prospect in baseball. He is perhaps the best defensive XXXXXX in the Minors. He held his own as the youngest regular player in the Midwest League last year. And he can also hit. After going 0-for-2 in the opening game of XXXXX doubleheader at XXXXX on Tuesday, XXXXX went 3-for-3 with a homer and double in the nightcap and has hits in each of his five games since, including a four-hit performance against XXXXX on Friday night. The 19-year-old is hitting .366/.427/.527 with 11 walks and just 13 strikeouts in his first 29 XXXXX League games.

    He also only allows 1 autograph per person per game, if he signs at all. I know from personal experience.

    Well, since you are allowing me to name him, I am going to give him the name of Patchy McBatterson.

    Supposed to see Lindor in action this week as they are visiting the nearby Salem Red Sox. About as good as a SS can look so far.

    Miguel Sano of the Twins. He is also the star of "Pelotero" Documentary. Good film for anyone who wants more insight into MLB process in Dominican. Might be a good time to be a Twins fan in a few years. Buxton is on fire as well.

    Write up on Lindor

    Should Jurickson Profar, Oscar Taveras and Wil Myers lose their eligibility, Lindor has the inside track at becoming baseball’s next top prospect.

    "Last week I helped my friend stay put. It's a lot easier'n helpin' 'em move. I just went over to his house and made sure that he did not start to load **** into a truck."
