2014 Draft Analysis In 5 Words or Less

Attached Image: draft-2014.jpg Sure we're a couple weeks late, and several hundreds of posts short...but we couldn't resist the temptation to continue our annual tradition of giving a run down of every single Twins draft pick for the busy fan. So keep your detailed scouting reports, don't bother worrying over their ETAs in the big leagues. All that information is covered in tremendous detail by Seth Stohs and Jeremy Nygard. Just appreciate the simplicity of five words for every player. (As always, numbers and punctuation don't count)

Right Handed Pitchers
Nicholas Burdi
(Round 2)--College reliever of the year

Michael Cederoth (Round 3)--Twins like right-handed relievers
Jake Reed (Round 5)--Really, they're great.
John Curtiss (Round 6)--You can always use them
Andro Cutura (Round 7)--Good thing our pen is big.
Keaton Steele (Round 8)--Holy cow...another one? Really?
Randy LeBlanc (Round 10)--Alright, we get it...Righties = Good
Zach Tillery (Round 13)--Stop. Just stop.
Trevor Hildenberger (Round 22)--Hilden Burgers served with Gorgonzola
Miles Nordgren (Round 23)--Long way to north green.
Orynn Veillon (Round 32)--Fun names > Right-handed relievers
Mike Bauman (Round 34)--Hey, a Mahtomedi product!

Left Handed Pitchers
Samuel Clay (Round 4)--Never give up on Lefties.
Mat Batts (Round 17)--Pitchers deserve less ominous names
Onas Farfan (Round 21)--First RBI alum Twins drafted
Taylor Heam (Round 25)--Lefties + Give Up? NO!
Cameron Avila-Leeper (Round 29)--Fortunately, not Avila-Leper.
Theo Theofanopoulos (Round 30)--Ποτέ μην εγκαταλείπεις στις Αριστεροί
Sam Hillard (Round 31)--Strong sinker...cross-fingers

Infielders/Catchers

Nick Gordon (SS, Round 1)--Flash's kid could be great
Patrick Kelly (2B, Round 12)--Red Wing native, Cornhusker alum
Tyler Mautner (3B, Round 14)--Not Lautner, sorry Twilight fans.
Tyler Kuresa (1B, Round 16)--Communications major! Baseball better work...
TJ White (3B, Round 18)--From Las Vegas to....Elizabethton?
Jarrard Poteete (C, Round 19)--You say PO-TEEEEE-TAY, I say...?
McCarthy Tatum (3B, Round 20)--Not Channing, sorry ladies.
Erwin Real (C, Round 24)--Could be MLB's 1st Erwin since 1913.
Blake Schmit (SS, Round 26)--Part of Maryland Shortstop pipeline
Gabriel Ojeda (C, Round 27)--Estudiante a Colegio Hector Udaneta!!
Trey Vavra (1B, Round 33)--Coach Joe's Kid, so sweet...

Brett Doe (C, Round 38)--Likely to toil in anonymity
John Jones (C, Round 39)--Finally, a bland name
Dalton Guthrie (SS, Round 40)--Mark Guthrie's boy, again, sweet.

Outfielders
