Last call for your picks to click. I'm turing up the house lights and pulling glasses. Let's go!
I wanted to give you a few games to scout before springing the Picks to Click poll on you, partially because I already want to revisit my picks of Byron Buxton and Lance Lynn. Buxton has started slowly, and I'm not sure how to describe Lynn's Twins debut on Monday. But those are my picks, which were announced in the press box at Hammond Stadium in Fort Myers a couple weeks ago. So I have to stick with them.
You can make your picks now or watch a couple more games before making a decision. I'm not sure how much it will help, as the Twins will play on Wednesday at Pittsburgh before coming home to play 10 games in the snowglobe that will be Target Field. Not sure how much you can learn about this team from that, given the conditions, but we're about to find out. The 2018 Pick to Click poll is now open!
The rules are simple. You pick one position player and one pitcher you believe will have a big season. It's all relative to the player. If you pick Brian Dozier, you are putting him another 40-plus homer season. If you are picking Buxton, he has to put another 25 points on his batting average, reach double figures in triples, reach his own goal of stealing 50 bases.
Feel free to give your reasons for your picks. And prepare to debate them. I'll compile the votes and announce the results in a couple of weeks.
You can post your picks below or on my Twitter account (@LaVelleNeal).
