    Going all the way back. TWINS DRAFTEES WHO DIDN'T SIGN BUT PLAYED IN THE MAJORS:
    1960s: Eddie Leon, Del Unser, Frank Brosseau, Steve Garvey, Charles Scrivener, Tommy Moore, Roger Freed, Al Hrabosky, Jake Brown, Craig Skok, Ken Szotkiewicz.
    1970s: Rick Burleson, Ron Cash,  Dick Ruthven, Dave Stegman, Pete Falcone, Warren Cromartie, Rick Peters, Jerry Maddox, Eric Show, Paul Mirabella, Marty Castillo, Steve Christmas, Vance McHenry, Jamie Allen, Joe Charboneau, Rick Bordi, Edwin Rodriguez, Bradley Lesley, Dave Leeper, Tony Fossas, Steve Bradley, Ralph Citarella, Mike Couchee, Randy O'Neal.
    1980s: Mike Fuentes, Steve Ellsworth, John Marzano, Steve Davis, Ralph Bryant, Greg Mathews, Tim Belcher, Bill Swift, Oddbie McDowell, Clay Parker, Joe Bitker, Mark Grace, Mike Benjamin, Mike Schwabe, Dan Smith, Craig Paquette, Aaron Sele, Derrick White, Tony Urbani.
    1990s: James Moulton, Tim Davis, TJ Mathews, Gary Matthews, Craig Dingman, Kelly Dransfeldt, Travis Lee, Danny Kolb, Emil Brown, Jason Varitek, Lance Carter, Brian Lawrence, AJ Hinch, Robert Ramsay, Matt Kata, Mike Lamb, Josh Bard, Mike Gosling, Kevin Thompson, Brian Slocum.
    2000s: Aaron Heilman, Paul Maholm, Daniel Davidson, Jason Vargas, Adam Lind, Jeff Clement, John Gaub, Garrett Mock, Travis Metcalf, Steve Pearce, Yonder Alonso, David Herndon, Charles Leesman, Andy Oliver, Chase Anderson, Mickey Storey, Seth Rosin, Aaron Barrett, Adam Cnley, Mario Hollands. 
    Recently: Cody Martin, Mark Payton (White Sox prospect), Andrew McCreery, James Marvel, Taylor Hearn, Sam Hilliard, Mike Baumann, Kyle Cody, Blake Cederlind, Greg Deischman.....
    I also like how the Twins go after unsigned draftees and trade or sign them late. Some notables: CHuck Baker, Pat Light, Chris Heston, Clete Thomas, Matt Macri, Jesse Orosco and recently Kyle Barraclough. Plus they have Elliot Soto currently in St. Paul.
    How would the Twins success have been over the years if they ahd signed Steve Garvey, Mark Grace, Tim Belcher, Jason Vargas, Adam Lind amongst others?

    I had to 'clear the mechanism' and reread this. It is absolutely fantastic, especially some of the extra little notes that really make it. 
    Twins scout Jack Powell is also in Trouble with the Curve. I'd have to include him.
    The first baseman/mom's boyfriend in Little Big League has to be considered.... And that team's shortstop was Kevin Elster, so he has to be considered, as does former Saints hitter Leon "Bull" Durham. 
    I was going to say Jim Morris as a lefty-reliever, but he's real.

    Seth Stohs got a reaction from cHawk in Baldelli: Pros/Cons and what I think about his future with the Twins   
    My thoughts on Baldelli and what little we actually know: 
    Pros: 
    Relationships/Communication: These are probably separate things, but I think his strength is his ability to communicate with players, but the biggest part of that is his willingness to listen to the players, to his coaches, and to others. The job he did in 2020 was amazing.  Humble: He rarely takes credit for anything and often puts blame on himself when he doesn't need to.  Smart: Dude is really, really smart. He understands the analytical side of the game. Between him and the coaches, that is communicated effectively.  Pitching: Many will disagree, but I think he does a nice job with both the starters and relievers. For starters, he understands which pitchers are capable of going through the lineup a third time. He understands their individual needs or health concerns. He also knows he's not a pitching guy and does lean on Wes Johnson and Pete Maki for advice. For the bullpen, he understands that you simply can't go to the top guys every time. He gets that back-to-back needs to be understood, and he also understands the big picture of putting guys into situations for now, but also thinking to the future. Alcala and Thielbar were given some tough situations early and struggled, but he allowed them to fail and by season's end, both were reliable.  Offense: Again, he doesn't interfere. He just let's the guys play and trusts them. he doesn't try to do too much.  He's a former player, a guy who was a top prospect and impact player and a guy who got hurt a lot, struggled and had to leave the game early. He can understand what the players are going through. He's been there.  He's well respected by the team, the players. He's good.  Cons: 
    The Drew Maggi situation.  Not thinking like me 100% of the time... Actually, that's probably a pro for him. Ha!

    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.
