  1. I completely agree. If Lesko is at 8, the Twins have to draft him. At that point he also becomes BPA. I'm really high on Cam Collier. Youngest draft eligible player (only 17) with loads of talents, pedigree, smooth LH swing and mid-90's FB. One season at Chipola College: .308/.427/.500, 6 HR, 23 BB , 22 K. His name will gain some helium the closer we get to draft day.
  2. Comments to the tweet are very interesting. It also seems like Falvey / Levine are doing a wonderful job of pitting AL East teams against each other to maximize a return. I'd be stoked if we get a haul of Pearson/Martin and/or Groshans .... or Dominguez/Schmidt/+ ... man ... it would be a coup.
  3. Berrios to the Yankees starts with Dominguez AND Gil or Schmidt, maybe both. I would also want at least one other top 10 prospect, preferably a position player like Peraza. Yeah, it's very greedy and a quite possibly an over pay. But the Yankees are rarely in a rebuild phase because they have the resources and the allure to bring in top MLB FA talent.
  4. Hayes interview with Jim Pohlad for The Athletic didn't give much of anything, as expected. However, maybe I'm reading too much into this, when questioned about current leadership, Jim didn't mention Falvey or Levine by name in his response, even though the question asked about the two and Rocco specifically. Mods - I hope a cropped screenshot from a paid subscription piece is okay. If not, please delete
  5. I can't get myself to participate in this poll. I don't want to be responsible for any bad juju.
  6. Balazovic's scoreless streak is made even more impressive by the fact it has come against the three teams chasing Witcha in the AA Central - North Division. Tulsa, Arkansas and NW Arkansas have a combined .530 winning percentage (all 3 over .500). He is blanking highly competitive division rivals.
  7. Perhaps I'm mistaken about Bauer ... he isn't a FA, but I believe he has a player option each year of his 3-year deal.
  8. Based on our offensive numbers against the rest of the league, we should keep the band together. Twins rank in the top 10 in BA, OPS, and HR, top 15 in nearly every other offensive category - 21st in SO though, which surprised me. The team has hit very well considering all the young guys we've had to play due to injuries and other circumstances. This season is once again a result not investing into quality pitching. We try too hard to fill our rotation and BP with bounce-back candidates or possible diamonds in the rough. My thought is to work hard to extend Berrios and Buxton. We won't get enough in return (IMO) to make it worthwhile. Invest heavily into quality FA arms in the off-season. Overpay if we have to, it's just money (easy for me to say). We are a much better team than our record reflects at the moment. I see no reason to sell now. If we're in the same position one year from now, become sellers then.
  9. Wow ... we didn't even use our final pick on a college committed HS guy to establish a relationship. Damn.
  10. This morning on the Day 2 thread I commented that we have plenty of savings opportunities between rounds Comp A and 6 ... easily could increase value of a 11-20 pick up to 2/3 value. I thought it would be enough to lure a HS away from a college commitment. My guy is Braden Montgomery.
  11. David Festa's worst game pitched was against UCONN 5/21. In that game, Twins 9th round pick Pat Winkel went 3 for 3 with 2 HR and 7 RBI.
  12. Absolutely agree. More especially being a Stanford commit. Doesn't get much better from an education perspective.
  13. I feel like we could skim quite a bit off picks Comp A through round 6 to entice a HS commit to sign. I see enough potential savings between those rounds to bring pick 11 up to round 2/3 pick value. Braden Montgomery is tops on my wish list. Two-way guy, with lot's of potential either way. Also seems very mature and humble judging by his interview with Baseball Prospect Journal. Potential five tool guy, good character, team centric ... lot's to like about him.
