 With Gillaspie with the first pick in the supplemental round I will list Lawrie as an outfielder, stick him in right field and tell him to worry about his hitting.

I was trying to decide between Ladendorf and Eric Thames in the second round...real Twins pick Ladendorf so I will go with that and hope Thames lasts till the third round....looks like I get Thames in the third. Be interesting to see how far he falls due to the injury. 4th round target....Scott Gorgen. I bet he's gone by then...damn Gorgen is gone. Scott Barnes is fallback as a live armed lefty


I'm happy with this except for the Barnes pick...that was panic as the guys I wanted went off the board right before I picked. I should have gone with long-time favorite Zach Putnam. Barnes is OK but there were better guys available. Not sure what is going to happen with Thames in real life...either the injury is worse than we know or his bonus demands are scaring teams away. Petralli should get called early today. I like Josh Satin...I think he's more of an outfielder than a second baseman but the bat is strong....main risk is his age.

I think I've done enough getting some bats here and need to focus on pitching in the coming rounds. Seventh round target is Brett Moorhead, a junior college pitcher out of Florida with a strong arm.....I will move Moorhead to the 8th round since I like Real Twins pick Osterbrock a lot.
