It’s safe to say that the Minnesota Twins faithful have grown accustomed to the frustration that has surrounded the franchise since opening day of the 2011 season.

Drafted: 1st Round, 2nd pick
The Twins have always been infatuated with toolsy outfielders so it wasn’t a surprise when they passed on several high end collegiate pitchers in order to grab Buxton with the 2nd overall pick. Even without that infatuation it would have been hard to pass up on a player that many consider to be
