    Um, Arraez for Jack Flaherty... Yes, please! 
    Canterino, Wallner and Enlow for one year of Manaea? No, thanks!

    Seth Stohs got a reaction from DocBauer in Matt Wallner hit by pitch   
    Just heard from Wallner. He got a couple of stitches, but said he's "good to go." That's certainly encouraging. Anytime you hear about a guy getting hit near the head, it's scary.

    Great report. 
    I updated the Wallner situation in the comments of the Wallner blog.

    Just a few thoughts from the analysis (great work and thought put into it)... 
    1.) They have been Sean Johnson's drafts. He is the scouting director and responsible for drafting. Falvey provides a framework and some of the thought process. He has encouraged the scouting department to work with the player development and communicate between the departments. 
    2.) The Twins don't and shouldn't care what any other rating system puts for their rankings. They should trust their scouts and evaluators (dozens) over 2-4 people at sites like MLB.com, Baseball America or any other site think. 
    3.) The two "Huge Reach" guys with some playing time (Jeffers and Steer) sure look like good picks ot this point. 
    4.) Injuries are always a factor, unfortunately. 
     
    It will be good to look at this analysis in 3-4 more years when we'll know a lot more about all of these players.

    I don't think your expectation is borne out by baseball draft history. Sure, for a top 5 pick like Royce Lewis the expectation is that he's going to be a major league player, and have a good chance at being more than that. And those top five picks almost always get to the majors and with at least some success. But first round picks still bust all the time, and expecting that the twins picks are going to be immune to that doesn't make sense to me. Falvey has had 1 top 5 pick (#1 overall), 1 pick in the top 15, and everything else 20 or lower. If all these guys make the majors it'd be amazing

    I understand your point of view and respect the amount of work you clearly put into this (won't say that I remotely even agree with it), but it's entirely subjective.  This reads more along the lines of "I don't like these picks and this is my anecdotal evidence to support it".
    Baseball is a game of "failure".  Players and front offices will fail or be wrong more times than they will ever be "right", and even that level of "right" is in itself extremely subjective.

    Seth Stohs got a reaction from chpettit19 in A heavyweight name weighs in on Twins FO and organization   
    It's an absolutely ridiculous tweet. Makes no sense. Viola has no idea. He's had nothing to do wit with the organization for like 30 years. He's been whining about the Twins since they hired someone else to be their pitching coach (clearly a good decision). So what he says doesn't confirm anything. What's his purpose in the tweet? Who is he upset at? Falvey because he didn't hire him?
    Not baseball people? Falvey has been around the game for a long time. Played in college, scouted, worked in a variety of front office roles. Levine was the assistant GM of a couple of World Series teams in Texas. He's also been in a variety of roles. Rocco Baldelli has done pretty much everything in the game over the past 20+ years. 
    The team has won. This year, the pitching and the injuries just became too much. 
    The previous front office hadn't won for a long time either. The player development at that time was a big question mark. And, frankly, Viola was part of the 1987 and 1988 teams that won, but he was also part of the 1982-1986 teams that lost a lot of games with 'baseball people."
