Upload blog: Do the Twins have 'the best farm system in baseball?'

Posted by: Brian Stensaas under People Updated: May 30, 2013 - 4:21 PM

It's widely known the Twins have some promising young stars presumably in the making. Through the wonders of Twitter and YouTube we catch onto 19-year-old Byron Buxton flying around the bases after moon-shot, walk-off home runs in Cedar Rapids. And Miguel Sano turning hard on a fastball and depositing it into the seats. And big 6-7 Alex Meyer nearing triple digits from the mound.

These "big three" prospects are noted by CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman in a recent post on the site. They're the core reason one National League general manager told the former Newsday and Sports Illustrated writer that the Twins have "the best farm system in baseball."

You can read more for yourself, but the post makes comparisons like Mike Trout, Matt Kemp and Adrian Beltre when talking about Buxton and Sano.

Too strong? Maybe. But what little secret is left about these prospects won't be kept under wraps for long if more national exposure comes their way.

In the meantime, please enjoy this clip of Buxton mashing a walk-off grand slam earlier this month
