    Should maybe take it easy on that one though right? Maybe the guy could just see into the future? He was talking about Hicks right?

    Bust. Hated the pick. Have enough toolsy OF in the system. Should have drafted a pitcher.

    agree we should have taken a pitcher, but everyone saying BPA BPA or some garbage like that... That said, not sure I'd call him a bust just yet. Here's the reality... he's never faced this type of competition before, and he's likely doing the whole "wooden bat for the first time" thing. He may need to take some time adjusting. I hope he figures it out... #2 overall is a bad one to waste.

    You two (above) are unbelievable.

    Are you talking about the plus defender that is OPS'ing .775 in AA as a 22 yr old?

    Maybe Buxton can take Hicks' place as the prospect that Twins fans absolutely demand produces immediately and unequivocally. He can have a year where he does some surprising stuff and instead of being pleased we'll point out the stuff he still doesn't do well. Then he'll start to learn some of that stuff, but not learn it fast enough for our sake. Hicks has responded kind of impressively to this honor in his first AA season.

    I thought the BYTO meme was in regards to Span. Could be wrong, it's happened before.

    It was stupid-ass Roto commenting about Hicks when he was slumping in A-ball a few years back.

    Is this a joke? You are "not sure you'd call him a bust just yet"? So you're saying you are going to give him more than 2 weeks before writing him off? Good job! Pat yourself on the back!!

    If he's not hitting .350 by August we can DEFINITELY write him off then.

    really, when did I say give him 2 more weeks before writing him off? For that matter, when did I specify a timeline at all?
