3/5/10 Update – Those of you who pre-ordered a copy or copies of the Prospect Handbook should be seeing your book in the mail very soon. I received all of the books on Thursday, and spent the whole night addressing envelopes and signing books. They were all put in the mail at the post office on Friday morning.

You can now order the Minnesota Twins 2010 Prospect Handbook here.

As you receive your Prospect Handbook, please let me know. If you have any feedback or thoughts, please feel free to e-mail me or leave comments here. Your feedback is incredibly important to me. I am very happy with how the book turned out, but would still love to hear your thoughts.   

In addition to over 150 Twins prospect profiles, this year’s handbook has several stories which feature quotes from Twins prospects. Tom Stuifbergen talks about pitching against the Dominican Republic in the WBC. Trevor Plouffe talks about winning gold with Team USA in the World Cup. Liam Hendriks and Brad Tippett discuss pitching for Team Australia. There is a story on the 2009 draft which contains quotes from Kyle Gibson, Nick Lockwood, Matt Tone and Kane Holbrook, as well as a small Q&A with Minnesota native and former Gopher Derek McCallum. Danny Valencia provided a lot of quotes for a story called On the Cusp: Danny Valencia. There is a Q&A with Jeff Manship. And much, much more.

    Just received my copy of the 2010 Twin Propect Handbook today. It is outstanding and well worth the money. Every year for the past several years I bought the Baseball America Prospect and that is a good publication, but this is much better especially if you are a Minnesota Twins fan.

    Finally, a great book to read about the future Twins. In lieu of all the Jo Nathan talk, I liked the profile Loek Van Mil, who I see someday taking the torch of the Twins “door slammer” (as my 5 year old Nolan calls the closer position). Thanks for all your hard work in putting this together)

    Great stuff. Especially liked the info on all of the international players. Didn’t know the Twins had any Korean players in the minors!

    One possible omission (IMO) what about David Winfree? He seemed to be a step away last year from joining the team. Is he still Twins property?

      OK – just noticed that the Yankees signed him. I agree about the lack of right-hander power hitters available as potential Cuddy replacement. Knock on wood, but the guy has not proven to be an iron man. I am worried about the Twins outfield depth. I guess Darin Erstadt is available.

    Hi, Seth… the book finally arrived here in western Canada this past Monday… I think the guys at the Customs Office must have held onto it for a while and read it (lol).

    I am very impressed with the quality and depth of the player evaluations, and am really enjoying getting to know more about some of the lesser known guys who may well start appearing on the national radar before too long (a great example is Nelvin Fuentes). The Rene Tosoni review helps me get a better idea of his skill set and I have hope that he will find a way to climb into the major league picture… he certainly sounds like the kind of guy Gardy would like to have around.

    I am sure your shipping costs to Canada must be higher than the US destinations, and it would be reasonable for you to set a price for international orders that adds enough to at least break even on that… most publications do that (e.g. Sickels, whose books I have bought for 15 years). I’m sure I can’t be the only Canadian who wants to see this information and have the book around as reference.
