Perhaps my memory needs a refresh, but I dont' really remember Adell being in the conversation at all, and I think Hiura was in a similar boat... Either way, I know I wasn't thrilled with the Lewis pick because it seemed cheap, but in all it looks like they did it right, not just getting what turned out to be one of the best prospects in the game right now, but using the lower signing amount to supplement it with a lot of high ceiling guys in Rooker, Leach, Enlow, etc.


I don't recall Adell being in the conversation nationally either. But, there was a regular poster here that badly wanted the Twins to take him.

Can you imagine how much people would have railed on the pick if the Twins had taken Adell 1st overall?Plenty of people were already upset about Lewis.

Adell at #2 is an outlier and I don't think very sensible. In a redraft, I'd take Lewis #1 without a doubt. Then Adell, then Gore. 

If you ain't got no haters, you ain't poppin'.

I was actually thinking of someone that's no longer present (can't recall his username), though I'm sure there were others.

I was thinking of you, or the mystery poster. I’m going hunting later, it’s the internet so it’s there somewhere; last chance to come clean!

Since apparently I have nothing better to do on a Friday night, I looked through the original thread. Willihammer was the one who really wanted Adell.

 

And, man were people here ticked about the Twins getting Lewis...

Can we do this with the Kohl Stewart draft or Tyler Jay draft?

 

Perspective.  

 

I know this is specifically about 2017, there was better talent at that draft, but man, we need some time.

I was really hoping the Twins would draft a pitcher that year, but now that the dust has settled I'm very pleased with how Royce Lewis has played so far. Of course these are still early days and who know how all of these players will end up doing, but I'm very confident that Lewis will be a keeper, and hopefully a perennial all-star for the Twins.
