All-Time Minnesota Twins Draft

All-Time Minnesota Twins Draft

This article is part of our MLB Observations series.

We've had low points before at RotoWire, but this was arguably our nadir – Peter Schoenke, Jeff Erickson and I did an all-time Twins draft, minus the Senators whom Schoenke disavows. Just know that we persevered through a wasteland of pitching and hitting to bring you this product.  

Here are the results:
