2023 Minnesota Twins Draft Picks

  1. Always sad to read the comments of someone obviously too young to remember the state of the Twins BEFORE the Pohland's bought it.
  2. They MIGHT trade one but they won't trade both. Too much chance of Larnach being Larnach, Kiriloff being injured and Julien being Miranda. IF all of those things don't happen maybe both are gone by the deadline but they were expected to be gone by the deadline this past year to and that would have been a mistake.
  3. I always laugh at the questions that are asked of athletes, coaches and front office guys. I usually think "what the hell did you expect the guy to say?" What do you need to do different in the second half? Score more points than the other team. Well we're gonna run some different plays. Here are the plays we're gonna run. Go tell the other team. How do you plan to get hitter A out? He can't hit the curve ball so we're gonna throw him curve balls.
  4. I said a year ago that they should have moved on Gabriel Moreno instead of this guy. That being said, and with no seasoned help on the farm, I only move Vasquez if I can bring back a Moreno type of ready to plug and play guy.
  5. I was pounding the table to take a shot at Senzel at the deadline given the versatility you mentioned as well as the fact that he had an OPS over a thousand against lefties in 2023.
  6. Not even sure that your best (maybe only legitimate) CF prospect should even be considered a dark horse. It's a different world now but when the team brought up a young CF in May of 1984 most Twins fans had never even heard of him. THAT was a dark horse. And played out pretty well.
  7. I'm just happy to see Martin finally making it look like there might be a return on the Berrios trade.
  8. My biggest concern is that Julien / Wallner / Varland don't take the Miranda / Larnach or even, to a certain extent, Kiriloff route.
  9. There is absolutely value there. Just a matter of finding it. If everyone could do that we'd have 30 teams winning the World Series each year.
  10. Folks on this and other sites have been moving on from these two for years. I guarantee that at least one of them, and likely both will be around for 2024. It's great to have guys poised to replace other guys. Even better when those guys don't perform like Larnach and Miranda. The risk of moving both of them will not be something this FO will take. And rightfully so.
  11. Big difference between having a plan to replace that revenue and actually having someone to stroke that check. Until someone does all bets are off.
  12. Yup. And he struck out 80 times in 250 PAs. Get him 550 and he's got a legit shot at Sano's team strikeout record.
  13. MSP is the 16th largest market in the US. Two of the markets that are larger have two teams but are also far more than twice the size of the MSP market so it's almost like 17th is right where we should be in payroll. And the RSN money IS gonna be an issue whether you want it to be or not. Sorry.
  14. $150 Million is likely a stretch given the current and likely future state of local television revenues.
  15. Gallo, Kirilloff & Farmer all played games at both 1B and LF so yeah, one has to do with the other.
  16. Wallner is Gallo lite and if we're lucky he'll take five years to strike himself out of the league instead of three. Miranda showed so much this year that he earned a one ticket east across the river. Same with Larnach. Julien MIGHT be the only hope you've named but he's a LONG way from not being a defensive liability and might never get there. Good luck with all of that.
  17. And yet Larnach spent most of the year in St. Paul, Kirilloff ended up hurt (shocking) when the moment got big and Matt Wallner's biggest achievement was playing Gallo out of the lineup but there's a real good chance that he himself strikes his way out of the league in three years too.
