Thread: Article: Twins Organizational Depth Chart - Outfielders

    The amount of OF's we have is a strength and will be good leverage in future trade talks.

    Only if Terry Ryan ever considers trading a minor leaguer... (Or were you saying we have leverage in talks with our own players because we have so many minor league OF piling up and "We've got guys willing to play for nothing if you won't take it"?) Whatever, more options are good, but wasting careers by not playing OR trading players is just selfish. Ryan has to find roles for these guys, and trade bait is a noble use.

    I am curious if Garcia is a definite defensive improvement over Delmon Young? And, Willingham?

    With progression, talent, and a little bit of luck perhaps:

    2015 Twins OF

    Hicks-Buxton-Arcia----Presley &/or healthy Mastro as reserves. Possibly Plouffe.

    Walker and Ortiz close and waiting in the wings.

    Here here.
    2 words: Josh Hamilton.
    Methinks that Joe Benson needs similar help. And I will leave it at that (and I am not talking about adiction here)

    Huge difference, Hamilton had/has/always has had significantly more raw talent then Benson ever had.

    If the Twins have any outfielder who has a chance to be a Josh Hamilton Comp - It would be Walker (Size - Free Swinger - Power - Range - Production as a run producer). Not Benson. He just needs to step up with his OBP. He had an OBP of .400 / .486 / & .426 in college years respectively. Maybe he can get that awareness back. He has always been my Hamilton comp.

    Terry Ryan says that Walker has more power than anyone in the organization.

    lightfoot... I don't want to put words into Thrylos' mouth, but before you volunteer Walker up as your Hamilton-clone, you might want to ask yourself if he was talking about this:

    Throw Arcia in there too and that would be something to pay to watch!

    I would love to see that too. Let's get that going for a Spring Training BP. Walker would have to be able to go up with the big boys for that one though (Hammond Stadium BP).
