Friday Links-N-Thinks: Minor League Edition

It has been one of the busiest weeks in the history of this blog as I have delved into a variety of topics surrounding the minor league system of the Minnesota Twins. My top 20 Twins prospects were released earlier this week. I looked at some of the age related issues facing players born in Latin America and how it impacts Miguel Sano, the number one prospect in the Twins organization. Yesterday, I shared an excerpt from the 2012 Minnesota Twins Prospect Handbook by previewing the 2012 MLB Draft.

This weekend also marks the annual gathering of fans for TwinsFest at the Metrodome. People from across Twins Territory will converge on downtown Minneapolis for autographs, baseball cards and memorabilia. Fans of the organization are eager to turn the page on last season and get prepared with the hope of 2012. I will be attending all three days of TwinsFest and you can look for my full report on festivities in the coming days.

To wrap-up my first "Minor League Appreciation Week," I have compiled a variety of links related to the minor league system of the Twins. Enjoy the links and I look forward to meeting some of you this weekend and getting reacquainted with those I have already met.
Weekly Rundown
Video of the Week: Here is a quick video of Miguel Sano that was put together by to accompany their Top 100 Prospect list. Sano was the only Twins player in their top 25 and his transition to a full season league will be watched closely next season by many people across baseball.
