How will Nick Gordon work out?

  The Twins grabbed Nick Gordon, a high school short stop with their 5th overall pick in the first round. It’s notoriously difficult to project high school players, and how they will adapt to the major league lifestyle. Byron Buxton is good, but who could have seen how good he would be. What about Joe Mauer? That’s played out pretty nicely. But then there is also Travis Harrison...

Twins swiftly sign No. 5 overall pick Gordon

MINNEAPOLIS -- During Tom Gordon's 21-year career as a major-league reliever, he'd often bring his young sons, Dee and Nick, to the ballpark with him. He couldn't bring them every game, though, so he'd sometimes have to sneak out of his house before his sons saw him leave for work. That didn't sit well with Nick, the younger of the two brothers. Whenever Tom would leave him behind...

Twins select prep shortstop Nick Gordon No. 5 overall

MINNEAPOLIS -- It appeared all along that high school shortstop Nick Gordon was the player the Minnesota Twins coveted with the No. 5 pick. With Gordon still on the board when the Twins made their selection, he was indeed their guy. The 6-foot-2, 170-pound Gordon was viewed by some as the top position player in this year's draft. It marks the second time in three years that Minnesota...

Sox 99 – Pitching Woes

Early May was a rough time for the Sox pitching staff as they headed to the West Coast to face the A’s. Not only was star closer Tom Gordon still on the DL, but no. 2 starter Bret Saberhagen was on the sidelines with a sore shoulder. The 10-15 A’s had beaten Boston only twice in 11 meetings in 98, but they hit Sox pitching hard in winning 3 of 4. Jimy Williams started journeyman...

Draft Update: Gordon, Gettys, Bukauskas

Right-hander Jake Bukauskas Nick Gordon: Best SS Of 2014 Crop? ESPN’s draft expert Chris Crawford says that although catcher Alex Jackson is still likely the best prep position player in the draft, he’s getting serious competition from shortstop Nick Gordon. The 6’1, 170 pound Gordon, who is the son of former reliever Tom Gordon, has had a great senior season for Olympia...

Sox 99 – Gordon Goes Down

Sometimes an injury to an important member of a team can start a tailspin. That seemed to happen with the 99 Sox. Entering an April series at Fenway against the undermanned but troublesome Tampa Bay, the Sox were 6-2 and apparently on their way. But in the second game of the series, storm clouds appeared over the park. In the opening contest on the 17th, 18,809 (this was long before...

Dee Gordon: Money Can't Buy Happiness

When the Los Angeles Dodgers were purchased several years ago, the new ownership made one thing clear: money would not be an issue for the Los Angeles team.  Andre Ethier and Matt Kemp both signed extensions. Carl Crawford and Adrian Gonzalez were taken on as something of a salary dump. And free agents were lured away from other teams.  Throughout the 2013 season it looked like...
