DateQuestionAnswer
2013-07-12 19:30:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat, Nick. Do you think Stephen Gonsalves will be a nice steal pick for Twins?
(Byron from Taiwan)
I think he got more money than his profile deserved, so I wouldn't label his signing a steal. That said, he's an arm that looked like a potential Day 1 talent during the summer scouting circuit, so even with the uneven spring it's nice to bring in the talent as a 4th rounder. I will say that, at least with respect to the evaluators I spoke with about Gonsalves, he's a highly divisive profile. More my money, I would have let him go to school. But the Twins weren't alone in thinking he was work some jingle -- especially in this class. (Nick Faleris on Draft Signing Day)
