I think Minnesota's ability to keep the minors system stocked (whether for the ML club or for trades) was one reason Krivskey was attractive.
I would look at Chris Buckley's work rather than the Twins. Krivsky wasn't much into the prep scouting/drafting/development side of things. Buckley worked for the Blue Jays. His drafts have a tendency to be top heavy looking for franchise talent, not overly different than O'brien era drafts.
