  1. My Mock Draft

    This is version 1.0 (and most likely the only one).

    My mock draft:
    1. Astros – P Mark Appel, Stanford. It comes down to him or Buxton.
    2. Twins – OF Byron Buxton, Georgia HS. Correa gaining.
    3. Mariners – SS Carlos Correa, Puerto Rico. The Mariners are unpredictable. I think it comes down to Correa or Buxton
    4. Orioles – P Kevin Gausman, LSU. Bundy and Gausman could form a lethal combination.
    5. Royals – P Kyle Zimmer, San Francisco. Will they pass ...

    Looking through names that expect to called next week, there are a few that seem to fit various patterns that the Twins have followed over the last handful of years. None of these names have appeared in any other preview that I've written.

    Luke Anderson, RHP, North Dakota State - Anderson is originally from Prior Lake, MN, so there is a very good chance he's been on the Twins radar for awhile. A senior with ...

    As you probably know, the MLB Draft will be taking place in just a little over a week. There is a lot of draft-related material scattered all over this very website. Among them are a handful of Draft Previews that I've written. Recently, there was a lengthy thread started by "cmb0252" which is all about the draft.

    What follows is a tag team effort between myself and "cmb0252" (I'm not sure if he's ready to introduce himself to the world yet), which took place over the last couple of ...

  5. Twins Draft Preview III - Presence in Puerto Rico

    This article was orignially posted at ManCenter.com

    ------

    Initially my plan was to continue the series with a preview of the Midwest. While the Twins do a pretty good job of locating and selecting talent from this area, it doesn't appear that there are a ton of top prospects from the area. So I'm pushing that preview back.

    Instead I'm going to highlight a place that has been a great place to infuse talent into the Twins system: Puerto Rico.

  7. Twins Draft Preview I

    The annual baseball Rule IV baseball draft is less than four months away. And while both the college and high school seasons still have to be played, it’s never too early to start looking ahead at the draft.

    This draft takes on an added interest if you’re a Twins fan. The team has not drafted higher than 14th overall since taking some guy named Mauer with the top overall pick in 2001. The 2012 draft brings not only the #2 overall pick, but also six total picks in the Top 100. ...
