Can't give up on Hicks. And as Thrylos said, the Twins need Hicks to be successful for them to be successful. He's been a top 15 prospect. He's a stud in the OF, I dare say he's got a solid chance to win a GG at some point. He seems to make adjustments (historically).

I think even if he's only a .265-.280 hitter with 15-20 HR and 15-25 SB with that solid defense he's a great addition to the Twins. Better value than Jacque Jones, but a shade below Shane Mack.

I think BA got it right.
