Deep dive on the Twins, MLB Draft, and Royce Lewis (ep. 121)

The Twins surprised a lot of us by drafting Royce Lewis first in the MLB Draft. Phil Mackey and Derek Wetmore discuss what went into that selection. They ask if it’s the right pick. They talk about the Twins’ apparent strategy and why it could pay off down the road. Also: Do you think Royce Lewis is going to be a star?

    I can’t say for sure why they passed up all those great pitching prospects for another shortstop.
    The way I’ve been seeing the reporting on it goes we have four or five good shortstops ready to come up. I think they should have really gambled and took a chance on the highschool kid with the 102 mile an hour fast ball. You never can have enough good arms in my view.
    I’m not an expert on talent but what I do know is the Pohlads are really really cheap and if I go by what they did in the past when they had some good teams but were unwilling to add a piece here or there to give themselves a chance at a real championship back in the early 2000’s. I’m not convinced these leopards have changed their spots. They are a very frugal lot they are and what makes us think this is nothing but cheap rearing it’s ugly head again? I’ll be watching to see if Royce and the 35th and 37th pick go anywhere. If none of them pan out then it’s the same old same old with the Pohlads and the same mindset that says how can we fool them once again today. Maybe I’m wrong but history has a way of telling you who you’re dealing with and I’ve found once a cheater always a cheater.
