Matt Garrioch has Harsh words for the Twins 2012 draft

4

Using the words like: "Failure" "Did Not use Any Strategy" "left a million dollars on the table" He lambasts their draft but does not actually look at the players they took. Pretty Harsh, especially when I like the two Guys Buxton and Berrios. His full text below: "The Twins were left with the second largest total under their allotment but when adding in the 5% that a team could overspend, they left over a million dollars on the table. That number would be close to $900k without the Mazilli signing but 100k is not counted for the players taken after the 10th. Erich Knab and James Marvel would have been good targets to offer that extra money to. The Twins could have drafted and signed a million dollar talent and chose not to. This is a failure in my eyes. They were put in a position to make an impact and did not use any strategy. They took a pile of college arms in a weak year for college arms. I am disappointed. Sorry for the rant, it frustrates me listening to Twins management on the radio about their thoughts, then seeing a plan poorly administered.
