There's no reason why Mbakwe can't have a long NBA career similar to Reggie Evans, formerly of the Hawkeyes. They have similar games - superior rebounders, strong defenders, not interested in getting 20 shots a game. Those are the kinds of players you want on your team. Good luck to you, Trevor.

Didn't the Twins just release David Ortiz, getting nothing in return? Wasn't there something about Tom Kelly not wanting a player that was not a good fielder?

On Mbakwe - his knees may be fine, but not being able to hit a shot beyond 8ft will cause him to not be drafted

I wish Trevor the best but I'll be surprised if he gets drafted. Under Tubby for most of your college career doesn't help simply because no body improves under him.

No, Ortiz was released for insubordination for not changing his approach to hitting according to Kelley's principals, known in archaeological history as "The Twins Way".

I hope he gets a chance. My question: how tall is he? Sid lists him as 6' 8". I'm 6 ft and I stood next to him last year. My guess is he's closer to six six r six five.
