Johnson was picked first in that draft. Not to point out the obvious, but Utley went 15, not second. If Johnson doesn't play baseball, the Twins would have likely gone with someone else in the top 5 of that draft. It's kind of unfair to cherry pick a guy that they Twins would not have been looking at for that position.

I totally agree, but it's a dream scenario. None of this is fair 13 years later and with the benefit of hindsight. It's more fun than saying, Johnson was gone, so the Twins took Justin Wayne, the next highest drafted RHP that yeah and he also didn't reach the Majors.

Oh, and I apologize that there is a reference to the Willennium on the front page of Twins Daily.

Regarding the '99 blog. Tough to track down, but looks like they got beat in the quarterfinals by Saleh in both '98 and '99. That Saleh team must have been tough!
