    I believe the Twins followed BAA strategy.
    Pitchers break down (Tottle, Bashore, Wimmers).
    You never have enough pitchers.
    Twins went after high upside, high risk rather than soft tossing SPs....
  2. Do you want "pitch to contact with better...

    Do you want "pitch to contact with better control" or "higher velocity but more risk"?

    I'll take the higher potential with higher risk in rounds 3 to 10.

    I know I'll be in the minority but I love the Twins draft.

    Big time arms

    Sano was the exception and he is their top int'l prospect.

    With 18 million coming off the books at the end of 2014 (Willingham, Correia, Burton, and Kubel), spend the money on young int'l free...

    Take BAA.

    If Gordon is not BAA, then spend the whole 2014 Int'l Pool Money if necessary on the top Int'l SS.

    Carrying a prospect on the 40 man roster for two...

    Carrying a prospect on the 40 man roster for two years is normal.

    The twins will carry Polanco, Kepler, and Vargas for at least two years before they get a sniff of MLB.

    There are many examples...

    If the Astros felt Polanco was a top ten Twins prospect, then why wouldn't they select him?
    They're not going to win 60 games with or without him.

    I would protect Kepler for the same reason but I...

    If another team left a top ten talent like Polanco or Kepler off their 40 man, I would want the Twins to pick and stash him for a year. It's not like the Twins will be in contention in 2014. This is...

    (36) present roster
    (2) Free Agent Pitchers
    (1) Rule 5
    (2) Polanco, Kepler

    The Astros are so bad they may stash Kepler on their roster for a year if not protected.

    The Twins would need to...

    I would put the pitchers higher than Polanco or Kepler.
    If I could only protect seven players for a trade, I would give up Polanco or Kepler before Berrios or Thorpe. Starting pitching is so scarce...

    Text above states Rogers as 2011 pick (needs correction). I assumed it was correct.

    I look at value this way: who would I'll be less willing to trade. Baxendale has shown a capability to dominate...

    Romero over Jorge Felix seems like a stretch.

    Rogers over Baxendale doesn't make sense. Baxendale was pushed faster and he totally dominated A+ where Rogers finished.
    Baxendale was drafted in...

    Here's my list for pitchers:
    Garza - E. Santana - Tanaka - expensive (try to get one)
    Josh Johnson - Hughes - Baker - Colby Lewis - low to medium cost (try to sign two of the four to two year deals)

    Rebuilding Keys:
    1. Understand the goal is to build a winning club for 2016-2022.

    Bard, Chargois, and Berrios didn't make Cedar Rapids?

    Is it a "limit innings issue" or ability?

    The club and agent both know the deal. If Super 2 is avoided then the club has more leverage - one more year before arb. or discount in a multi year contract because of the extra year.

    If the Marlins got top prospects then it's a good trade for them.

    Reyes, Buehrle, and Buck were signed as expensive free agents and Johnson is in his walk year.

    No one will sign him for 4/60 when they could have had for 1/13-14 in a minor deal with the Angels.

    I was disappointed that Ryan didn't make a trade for him.

    Either he signs a 1/10 to get back...
