Minnesota Twins Prospect Handbook 2012 (Now Available!)

17 Jan

also available at www.SethSpeaks.net

Seth Stohs of SethSpeaks.net and TwinsCentric is proud to announce that the Minnesota Twins Prospect Handbook 2012 is now available.
From AJ Achter to Jacob Younis (or Aaron Hicks to Miguel Sano to Liam Hendriks to Alex Wimmers, if you prefer), learn more about the prospects throughout the Twins minor league system. From last year’s book, a dozen players rose to the big leagues. How many will play with the Twins in 2012, and who should Twins fans get excited about?
Stohs noted, “I hope Twins fans will use this as a coffee table type of book. The Twins do build from within, so fans can learn more about these players before they get to the big leagues. The book is about the top prospects and the guys that 99% of fans haven’t heard of. They all work very hard to achieve their big league goals. Few will get there, but they also deserve recognition for all of their efforts.”
This is the fourth annual Twins prospect handbook by Stohs. The 2012 version features:
  • Self-published, available at LuLu.com as a 6×9 paperback book, with 179 pages of Twins minor league content.
  • More than 150 Prospect Profiles. Profiles by Seth Stohs, Cody Christie (North Dakota Twins Fan), Nick Nelson (Nick’s Twins Blog), Josh Johnson (Josh’s Thoughts).
  • Article on the 2011 Twins Major League Debuts, by Seth Stohs (quotes from Brian Dinkelman, Chris Parmelee and Liam Hendriks)
  • What do big stats in the Appy League really mean? by Roger Dehring (Twinkie Town)

  • Minor League Player of the Year: SS Brian Dozier, by Seth Stohs
  • Minor League Starting Pitcher of the Year: RHP Liam Hendriks by Seth Stohs

    Congrats on finishing this. I just ordered mine, and am looking forward to some good reading to get me through to when pitchers and catchers report.

      Thanks Andrew!! Hopefully it’ll be something Twins fans can read throughout the season!

    Just ordered mine too. Interested in seeing how the Lulu thing works.

      Hopefully well! I’m not a fan of their shipping costs, but it’s not any worse than other places. That’s why I kept the price lower than I probably should have. Hope it works well. Let me know!

    Seth, will you have any for sale at twins fest?

    • Seth January 17, 2012 at 9:51 am #

      Not at a booth or table or anything. I may bring a few extras to Twins Fest in case anyone might be interested.

    Is there a way to get a digital copy of this book Seth? I’m interested in buying, but i do most of my readign on a computer or tablet. Would save on the shipping cost too.

    • Seth January 17, 2012 at 12:17 pm #

      I’ll do that in coming days and will let people know. I wanted to make sure to get the print version done for those that wanted to have it by Twins Fest.

    Just placed my order, Seth. I wouldn’t travel to spring training without it! Are you going down to Florida this year?
