I seem to remember he was often talked about as one of the Twins biggest chips, specifically during the late 2000s when was often included in trade rumors.

Is this a selected list of prospects based on future performance or name recognition; or is this of the objectively highest ranked prospects (according to BA) through the 2000s? I was under the assumption that there was a lot more noise in the prospect rankings. I guess I was expecting to see closer to half of the people on the list either flame out or be ineffective, what we actually see is only maybe 4-5 out of the 20 and not one until #7 on the list. That makes me even more encouraged about our current state of the Twins minor league system.

Cool writeup, haven’t thought about the likes of Restovich and Moses in a while.
