I don't believe it has ever been proven that moral victories lead to actual victories the next season. I care more about development than wins in a losing season. If Suzuki, Correia, Willingham, and...

I'm afraid fans and the front office might give up on him too quick and he might become Gomez 2.0. Obviously he hasn't shown that he is a big leaguer but he still has the tools to be.

Why draft a RPer if you don't rush them to the bigs? The only reason he was projected to be a 1st round pick was because experts figured teams would see him as a player whom could help now rather...
Should Twins fans expect Burdi and Cederoth in the Majors within 2 yrs?

If not, then they were the wrong picks. I can't see taking a college reliever that high...
Callis' top 3 available:
1. J.B. Bukauskas, RHP, Stone Bridge HS, Ashburn, Va. Bukauskas sent teams an email in May, asking them not to draft him because he planned on attending North Carolina,...

29. Jake Bukauskas, RHP, Stone Bridge (Va.) HS

Wow, not a fan....especially because I can see the Twins try and convert him to a starter because that has turned out well.....

From Crawford's pick-by-pick analysis:
The brother of Dodgers second baseman Dee and the son of former All-Star pitcher Tom, Gordon saw his stock rise significantly through the spring. He is a...

Also, this on Thorpe:
Comment From Ian
Where would Lewis Thorpe (18 year old Australian in MN system) go in this draft?

Nola is a very polarizing prospect. At the beginning of the year there were questions if he was going to be a SPer or RPer because of his size/unorthodox delivery. His college performance this year...

Personal top 25:
My final thoughts on Gordon.
He is universally thought of as a top 5 talent with BA being the only credible site I have seen him ranked out of the top 5 (6th). He is also universally thought to be...
I was lucky enough to catch one of Stewart's starts last year before he got drafted and was very impressed. I just don't understand putting so much value in under fifty minor league innings. Heck, I...
Mlb.com has his fielding at 60, arm at 60 (lowest I have seen), and speed at 60. Also, KLaw and Crawford has Gordon's speed/range at 60 with his arm being a 70. Add in the reports of having great...

Law was at the last Nola performance and he noted in his write up the white Sox, cubs, marlins, and Twins were well represented. He also came back with a different point of view this fof Nola than...
Wacha has a 70-80 grade pitch in his change up. Nola doesn't own a single pitch that grades plus-plus. Also, Wimmers had just as good, if not better, college career as Nola before he came out so be...

I believe he only hit 95/96 in the first inning and after that stat in the 91-94 range.
He is 6'1 and throws from an awkward arm slot. While he repeats his delivery well it is something to note....
Once you see Law doing a mock you know the draft isn't far away. Nothing really new with the Twins being interested in Gordon, Jackson, and Nola but the fact the Twins might be in on Gatewood under...

Not only do I believe a system can never have enough LHPers but that seems to be a strength this year. I have been a huge Marshall/Forrest fan but also wouldn't mind Reed. I'm also very interested in...
I have no problem preferring Jackson or a different prospect to Gordon. Part of the fun of following the draft is debating whom the Twins should draft. The problem I have is you are inaccurately...
Let's not forget the Rockies signed Gray last year under slot and several experts had him as the drafts best player. Going under slot doesn't have to mean you get a lesser player.
With Rodon, Aiken, and Kolek most likely off the board give me Gordon, Jackson, or Holmes. I just don't love any of the other college arms that much.
I would also be very....very disappointed if they took Nola. I personally have him 13th on my board. If the Twins are going to take a 6'2 pitcher at #5 with no projection give me Holmes. Not only...
4th best starting pitcher or the best bat. I don't think it is cut and dry whom the Twins should take. Unless someone steps up I don't mind grabbing Jackson at 5. Big upside and a safer pick.
