Twinkietown Unofficial Draft Thread



Since I haven't seen a thread yet for the draft tonight like we had here last year I've decided to take it upon myself to create a thread.

Last year the Twins selected Byron Buxton with the second overall pick. Now he is considered by Keith Law and Baseball America to be one of the best prospects in all of baseball. The Twins select 4th overall tonight, who will they select? The buzz for the past several weeks has the Twins picking Texas high school righty Kohl Stewart, who has the potential to be a future ace with a big fastball and a sharp breaking ball. But like all high school picks he is considered a work in progress. Recently, there are some rumors that have Houston taking Colin Moran, 3B North Carolina, 1st overall, and as recently as today the 'Stros have been linked to Stewart. Will they or the Rockies who have also been rumored to "draft down" not take one of the "Big Three," leaving one or more of Appel, Gray, or Bryant to fall to the Twins?

We shall see, the draft begins at 6pm CT, and like last year can be seen on the MLB Network and is also streaming on The first two rounds will be covered today, so we can also see who the Twins pick at #43. So Twinkietown, discuss with thyselves about the draft! Who would you like to see the Twins take? What do you think will happen. Watch, react, and talk!
