Great breakdown. Thank you.
2004 was the toughest for me. The Twins scored runs. Plenty of them.
It was probably not as frustrating for me as it was for Joe Nathan.
My money is on Gibson. Too early to tell -- we need to see more starts from these guys.
Only thing that I can't say I agree with this article is that Correia is overpaid. Now, for his services five years ago, oh, god yes he is overpaid. But in these free-spending-on-pitching times, he got about the minimum possible from the Twins. Just goes to show you how prices for FA's have ballooned recently.
Deolis Guerra is out of options. He either sticks or is off the 40-man.
Yes, another toolsy outfielder with a high ceiling. I am so glad we have a million of those in our farm system that we can pass on guys like...Mike Trout. Nice!
One other name that I think will creep up draft lists in 2013, a la Albert Almora in 2012 is Clint Frazier. This guy is a Gamer with the biggest capital G you can find. I watched him in the Under Armour Game and he was really impressive. I think John Manuel called him "Ginger Mike Trout" or something like that.
I am very interested in Karsten Whitson too. I hope he bounces back, but not so much that he becomes a premier prospect again. I'd love to see the Twins get a guy like Whitson past the first round.
This is a useful review. Killer was my idol as a child and remains so. I am adding this book to my Amazon wish list.
