They could have picked between Buxton, Appel and GAusman after the Astros took Correa. So, now we can wishful think... who do we want at #32, or is it a given that they take Rochester Century's Mitch Brown?

Think they take Brown. I'd like to see the Twins take Pierce Johnson, college pitcher who should be quick to majors and a solid #3 type.

Better be pitching, pitching, and more pitching. They have none in the minors or majors. At some point, you do need to pitch the ball.
Lighten up Francis....

I"m going to say "no" and here is why. At #32 there is going to somebody who is a top 20 guy on their board who has slipped through. They won't be able to pass on that guy.

True, but with the new slotting system, they might stick with guys they have a good sense on signability before they pick them.

I was hoping people would be worried about Giolito and let him slip to us. No such luck. So now you go with BPA (Best Pitcher Available)

I think Mitchell Brown is their target. If McCullers or Stroman drops, though, I hope they pull the trigger on either guy and hope Brown is still there at 42.

I don't want to watch. I really want McCullers but I know he's going to goright before the Twins.

I think Mitch Brown with #42 I think that they will take a P who slipped with #32, but if Clint Coulter © falls there too, they might have a choice to make

I know they need pitching, but after watching Brian Dozier the last couple of days, how about Deven Marrero?
