What. A. Boring. Series. Losing two of three at home to B-more is unworthy of a Picture Pages recap (and i was READY to put together an amazing, Wire-themed version). See if you can find the common thread;
Baltimore 5 Twins 3
Twins leave 7 runners on base...lose
Twins 7 Baltimore 5
Twins leave 3 runners on base...win
Baltimore 3 Twins 2
Twins leave 9 runners on base...lose
Picture Pages-Twins First Round Draft Picks
1: (14th overall)
A 5 tool prospect out of Los Angeles. Actual Los Angeles, I think. Not Los Angeles of Anaheim, or Los Angeles of the Crystal Skull. A pitcher/outfielder in High School, the Twins plan on (apparently) lancing off the boil that is pitching and have young master Hicks concentrate on taking over for Michael Cuddyer in 2012. Sports Illustrated loved him before the rest of you...way back in 2007. Possible TWT nickname....The Hammer. Watch incredibly pointless scouting video here.
2: (27th overall)
The closer for The U baseball team in 2008...he missed 2007 due to Tommy John surgery. So, he's gotten that out of the way. According to his bio, he didn't start playing organized baseball until his senior year of High School. The internets claim that the Twins drafted this guy way too high. I say "phooey". As we've learned in MN, if you get a chance to bring in an athlete from the University of Miami...you do it. Possible TWT nickname...The Secretary. Watch incredibly pointless scouting video here.
3: (31st overall)
Steven "Shooter" Hunt
