Regarding the Grant Brisbee analysis - funny but who has a serious analysis now of the Twins' draft picks, we all need that now, don't we? Some vigorous discussion should be forthcoming I would think.

I would echo the need for real analysis. I know Bleacher Report has some stuff out, but I'm not always a fan of their stuff. I think Baseball America has reports, but it's behind the pay wall. You can always read scouting reports of most high-round players at MLB.com:

Speaking of serious draft analysis, Brad, of the Twins draft picks, who has the best name? Is it number 620 Onas Farfan or 890 Theo Theofanopolous?

Theo is the winner in a cake walk I think.

Yeah, I think he's in all-time best draft pick name ever territory.

Yeah, anytime your first name is part of your last name, you win. That's why I legally changed my name to Brad Bradville.

My real name is actually Samson Samsonite. Morley is just a made-up name I use online.

Sorry to hear about Johan, I too have a dream that he would end his career with the Twins, I'd like him to perform the real life version of the movie "For Love of the Game." Johan is a much better pitcher than Kevin Costner.
