Nick Gordon, 4-5 with a walk and double in his debut. Let the, 'time to move him up' talk begin.

LOL

Of course we'll hear it some.

I confess, nothing against Gordon, but I was still thinking as the draft approached, that SS Turner, who almost everyone dared dream would fall to the Twins with little hope, just might be the smart pick and a real steal. I just read scouting reports on Gordon that made me wonder in the skill set was enough to warrant the #5 pick in the draft. But as the draft grew nearer, I began to read reports of potential that had me greatly intrigued. A young ball player on the rise. And if these reports are accurate, I wonder if he might at least get a cup of coffee at CR before the season is done.

Would be awesome if he did. E-Town for a HS draft pick is rather rare.

Still wondering where Burdi might end up.

Pretty solid start.

Just glad we haven't had to say we passed on Kyle Schwarber (Indiana, Cubs #4)...4 homeruns in his first 18 at bats, already being promoted to A+.

Nice to see (or also telling) Gonsalves got the first start for the ELZ Twins.

You mean to tell me he's still in Elizabethtown? After a night like he had? Typical Twins act, holding back someone just because they're young.

0-5 in game #2. The guy's a bust! What a waste of a pick and nearly $4mil! Fire the entire scouting department.
