    It's not-so-much luck driven as it is sometimes his flaws don't show as deeply.

    Erickson was the #3 starter on the 1991 Twins, not some proto-Brandon Webb type. He was lights out against...

    When a pitcher has a BB/9 rate that starts with a 0, that's a vintage sign that Anderson had something to do with it. Then again, Target Field not being the band box that Yankee Stadium is also has...

    For my two cents, there's an interesting story being told by Gibson's splits. His K-rate is pretty solid against right handed hitters, but against lefties his K-rate makes Nick Blackburn look like...

    Any who scored points off Rik Mayall is a bloody bastard.

    As a redraft though, he has to give permission to the team to pick him again. Can't see that happening.

    I don't know about that. IMO, with this draft class it comes down to which flaws are you willing to ignore. There's a lot of talent in this draft, but there are no Strausburgs. And there may not even...

    Alternatively, we'll be in the middle of bitching about how the 22-year-old Buxton is a bust while the 26-year-old Hicks is starting to blossom on that timeline. Morneau was a bust until 2006. Ditto...

    If we're going to give Hicks the Becker treatment, this is going to turn into 1996 really quickly. Gomez should be the history lesson as to why we should have a little patience.

    The guy Gibson has always reminded me of is Scott Erickson, which means he'll never be as great as you think he is during the good times or as horrible as you think during the bad ones. There's...

    When you're coming off a rotation in 2013 that featured five guys who could best be dubbed 4A starters, I'm not sure you can ever act "too aggressively."

    Snark or no snark, I refuse to acknowledge that the ex-Cuban dictators ever made up the left side of the Twins infield.

    IMO, the big problem with this whole debate is the overrating of Florimon's glove. Maybe he can hit hit like Gagne next year, but that's setting the bar pretty low offensively and Gagne made up for...

    One was a bad starter on a playoff team that couldn't afford holes. One was a decent bench player on a team with no expectations.

    No. Minor league closers have such a low success rate as prospects, so Rondon is a pretty big risk. You have to really believe in Castellanos' star potential to do it. You're better off getting...

    While I firmly agree that I'd trade any current Twins starter for Kevin Slowey, could we not dub Vance Worley a guy with good peripherals? And what does it say about our current system that Worley...

    Whenever a guy tops out at 97, it usually means he sits 92-94 when starting and 95 or so in relief.

    IMO, the best thing you can say about Stewart is that he was in no way, shape or form cloned...

    Bryant seems the safest pick. Gray has the biggest upside. Appel should be solid. Stewart is the pick that scares the living bejeezus out of me. Especially...
