The Twins have won eight times this season scoring three or fewer runs, including once in each city of their just-completed 10-game road trip. They had six such victories all of last season.
For all this talk on the No. 1 overall pick, we haven't had a chance to mention Delmon Young, taken first by Tampa Bay in 2003. And, honestly, if this pick ends up with a career like Young's (10 OK-but-not-great major league seasons), is that actually so bad? Anyway, the draft begins at 6 p.m. on MLB Network.
