Today's edition of Ten Things I Didn't Know Last Week has three interesting things involving the Twins:
1. The Twins apparently have the best young talent in the bigs. If you look at the Win Shares Above Bench for players with less than 6 years of experience (after which you can become a free agent), the Twins come out on top.
2. "Free talent" is a term used to describe players that were signed as free agents for relatively cheap (like less than $3m). When ranking the Win Shares Above Bench for this "free talent", the Twins come up near the bottom of the list.
3. The Minnesota Twins Organizational Tree is a genealogy of the current roster, so you can see who the Twins got from where. Very cool.
