One thing I have noticed so far is that the Twins have yet to draft a catcher. Normally that position is a priority with the Twins on draft day, but they have a backlog at the position. Have they still only drafted one lefty pitcher? I like the pitcher-heavy strategy in that the team is much closer to competing above the .500 level, and you can trade pitching to get players, and any players they shed later this season (Willingham, Duensing, Suzuki, all possibilities) can be dealt for position players in the minors (the low minors, most likely).

You're right. They do like to accumulate catchers because it is a natural position of attrition. Guys get hurt. Guys that hit, get so tired and stop hitting. Etc. I'd think they'll still get one, maybe two... but they've got Swim (in FM now again) and three guys in EST.
