I think the biggest draw of Appel is that it would be very surprising if he doesn't become a #2 or #3 starter and also that he can get there fast. I think the bust potential is very low with him.

I would have loved it if Appel/Gray/Bryant fell to the Twins but Stewart was the guy I was hoping for. I think the Twins are close to claiming the top overall farm system although that doesn't always lead to success. Unnamed names...

Buxton, Sano, Stewart, Meyer, Rosario, Berrios and a handful of other interesting guys. Things are looking up for the Twins. I intentionally left Hicks, Arcia and Gibson since they will be in the majors this season. ;-D ;-D

I wasn't paying attention. mental mistake. I should not have started Kennedy tonight. I didn't trade for him to start yet. the last 2 years he has done better in the 2nd half.

Is Houston more appealing for Appel then Pittsburgh?
