If the Twins are talking about Buxton at #2, shouldn't we see it as a smokescreen? I have never heard the Twins leak their pick preferences before. I mean....ever.


I'm not sure they're leaking anything now, we just have more information out there. I don't know, but I could guess that Klaw has sources that might have confirmed to him things like 1) Twins were sending more of their cross checkers to view Buxton than any other player or 2) that they had been in communication with his 'agent' about what kind of signing bonus he's looking for. From that, Klaw might have talked to a Seattle scout who, putting two and two together, gave him his Twins are hoping Buxton falls quote.

KLaw just relesed mock draft 2.0 and has the Twins still taking Buxton though he notes that he thinks they have Appel #1 on their board and that Buxton and Zimmer are both still in play.

With the Twins history with Boras, I just don't see how they'd take Appel.
