Spy I don't know what you're talking about, but I'm just basing it off of countless encounters with him personally as well as other fans I've talked with thru the years.During ST there was a group of 5+ old time Twins fans (couple of TDers) standing around just sharing stories of their interactions with Kohl, lets just say nothing nice was said.[/i]


Bob, your insights are great, but this seems light. Other than possibly having poor social skills, what did Kohl Stewart do to these old guys, walk on their grass?

Or are there other things that you just don't think are appropriate to discuss?

Yeah everyone trying to ruin my Baseball Christmas stay on topic, BTW PMed the 3 of you my reply. :)

 

Up next, I want to see one of the guys I got to see tryout for the Twins drafted: Luis Curbelo, Nick Derr, Henry Matais, Bryan Torres, Fransisco Thomas, Josh Winckowski, JC Flowers.  Curbelo and Flowers should go off the board today.

Corbin Burnes could be a Corey Kluber type pick if he falls to the Twins today.

so the real question is whether they keep going young.I'm assuming these are more HS guys.I like that by the way.I'll be even happier if they pick up one more HS guy (preferably a pitcher).I suspect most of the rest of the top 10 will be college players.Jeremy noted in another thread that after the 4th or something like that the picks are no longer protected.

Smart strategy if this team has truly embraced their cellar dweller status. If they can't sign all of these guys, well it's only going to make their already large 2017 draft pool even larger.

Yeah they are all HS guys so I'm not expecting more than 1 either.  Still it seems the Twins might have saved a little money on Miranda although Baddoo might cost that savings, similar to what they did last year with Blankenhorn and Cabbage.

that's fine.They need ceiling, and the college ranks don't have a lot of it this year.I'm not going to be critical even though I'd have liked one of those prep arms at 1-15 b/c they went out and got ceiling.Sure, they didn't go get a Matt Manning, but every one of these guys could be an above average bat at their position.I like that a lot, and it really does veer away from their typical tendencies (drafting safe college arms in the 2nd round).

A couple nice picks at 73 & 74 - Miranda and Baddoo.Baddoo is another GA prep OFer.Mayo has said some nice things about the Twins draft.Not a bad first day although it'll be a few years before we know.

 

Much Baddoo about nothing! Sorry, I've wanted to do that for a while.

I was thinking of a band: Akil Baddoo and all your friends.

Sorry.
