Random Draft Thought

New, 14 comments

Kevin Goldstein has the Twins picking Mike Kvasnicka, University of Minnesota catcher/outfielder, in the first round.

As a Twins fan, and looking ahead at my own Shadow Draft plans, I'm of two minds on this. I like Kvasnicka, but I see him as more of a supplemental or second round guy, and picking him at 21 seems an overdraft. On the other hand, I like it when the Twins pick up local players, there's a good chance Kvasnicka won't be there by the time the Twins pick again at 71, and he's a pretty good prospect in his own right as a catcher with offensive potential.

If the Twins really like Kvasnicka, should they pick him in the first round even if someone like A.J. Cole or Brett Eibner is available? Or should they gamble that he'll still be there in the second round?
