Some food for thought:

Alcides Escobar has been mentioned by many as a can't miss infield prospect for the Brewers, a player who can push JJ Hardy to third base or even outside the Brewers' organization.

Here is a comparison:

Alcides Escobar:

2008 Southern League (AA): .328/.363/.434 (.797 OPS) .971 FP.

Steven Tolleson:

2008 Eastern League (AA): .300/.382/.466 (.848 OPS) .982 FP (2B), .930 FP (SS)

Should the Twins be thinking of Tolleson's major league potential in similar terms?
