Twins Draft Production 2000 - 2010

Players who made it to the majors in all caps and significant big-leaguers in bold

Big Leaguers for other teams (did not sign with Twins or traded) in italics.

Minor-leaguers still in system in lower case and significant players in bold. I don't see any players drafted in 2003 or before that haven't made it to the majors and are still in the system. Also 2008, 2009, 2010 drafts have more players than listed still in the system but I just picked out the names I regularly see in minor league box scores.

To me the 2007 draft looks like the worst of the decade. If neither Revere or Morales make it the entire draft looks like a bust... but it wouldn't take much to outperform the 03 class either.

2005, 2002, and 2001 draft classes all have had solid returns but hard to pick one as the best.

Hard to say anything about the 2008,2009, 2010 classes yet but hopefully they atleast look better than the 03 & 07 classes after a couple of years.
