Good Wednesday, All! I pretty much passed out last night after my podcast, but I wanted to get up early this morning and at least provide you with some links!

That’s it for now, have a great day! Any thoughts?

    It is always fun to look at the Baseball Prospectus list. Specifically look at the top 10 prospects of 2006, and the projected 2010 line-ups. Sometimes they are dead on, sometimes it amazes me how quickly a prospect falls of the planet (Chris Parmelee).

    How has Parmelee fallen off the face of the planet? He had another solid year, this time in the Florida State League. He held his own in the Arizona Fall League. He’ll likely be in AA this year.

    In November, I did an analysis of top prospects from ten years ago and compared what happened with BBA’s top ten.

    The list is not unusual. The top prospects on the BBA list then were Cuddyer and Restovich. Morneau didn’t appear on the list at all, neither did Pierzynski. Cuddyer and Santana are the only unqualified successes on the BBA list. I think it puts in perspective the “can miss” nature of “can’t miss” prospects.

    “…..the offseason has been about patience ……”

    the list of free agents at positions of need is getting shorter and shorter. i’ve read that mauer is waiting to see if the twins improve the team this winter before he signs. at this point it would be hard to say they have improved.

    I read some where that Mauer is waiting to sign so that the Twins still have money to sign free agents.

    I thought I heard a rumor that Mauer was likely to wait until after the season to see what other offers he gets. Oh, wait, I guess I started that rumor.

    Two pieces of information I thought everyone would be interested in.
    1. Joe Crede is likely headed to Baltimore in a incentiveladen contract.
    2. With Jarrod Washburn turning down Twins offer the Twins have moved on and are now targeting doug davis.

    Twins site notes in Transactions they re-signed Brock Peterson to a contract on the 8th.
