I have been doing a Shadow Draft for the Twins since 1996, building my own farm system on paper. I assume I'm the Twins with the budget restrictions and draft position thereof. Sometimes I like the same players that the real Twins do, but a lot of times I go my own direction.
Here is a look at the guys I have drafted since 1996 who have made the majors. Later today or tomorrow I will look at the biggest mistakes, and then we will see how my current Shadow Twins farm system compares to the real thing. I don't pretend to know 10% of what Mike Radcliff and the Twins scouts know, but I do find the exercise useful, informative, and fun.
