    • It is fairly astonishing, but every Twins' position player now, other than the middle infielders, has an OPS+ higher than 100.

    I think that a lot of the Minnesota Twins' fans have been frustrated with the way the Twins have been performing this and the last season. Some of us have been frustrated even longer, since the Twins have last won a World Series in 1991. That was 21 seasons ago. Kids who were born then they can now buy booze. Not good.

    Anecdotally, there have been a lot of remarks and thoughts about the Twins trying to create ...

    Originally published at The Tenth Inning Stretch

    With the Twins having a severe need for pitching in the organization as well as six picks among the top 100, it is certain that more than one of those picks (and probably the second overall pick) will be used to draft a pitcher.
