TDG’s The Best Twitter Follows: Triple-A Affiliates – Pacific Coast League

When building (and especially rebuilding) a dynasty baseball team, having the most accurate and up-to-date information is key.  A transaction to acquire prospects based on information not yet published in the annals of Baseball Prospectus, Baseball America, or Fangraphs gives you the edge in creating a super team.

My goal over the next few articles is to provide you with the handles of the crème-de-la-crème.  Names that will boost your knowledge of the game and the progress made by little known but emerging prospects.  In order to make this somewhat manageable, I have broken out the list based on team, subcategorized by scouts, beat reporters*, analysts, and a special category of fun player follows.

If you want, follow me @TheStatcastEra. I have added these names in my PCL AAA list and retweet liberally.

If we missed anyone, please leave a comment and we’ll include them!

*In this day and age, “beat reporters” are a somewhat rare breed. In this instance, we are recognizing loosely affiliated with rabid bloggers and evangelical MiLB followers.
