Across the Meadow: Draft Recaps

Is it possible you haven't had quite enough of the draft yet? Did you watch and listen to the whole thing? Did you read every single word of coverage here at Twins Daily?

If you're yearning for a bit more, you're in luck. We have it for you.
We covered the first night with pretty quick recaps on Cavaco, Wallner and Canterino.

We came back on Thursday morning (an AM podcast!) to discuss the second and third day of the draft. Who do we like? Who might not sign? And deeper dives on many of the players who heard their names called by the Minnesota Twins.

Our goal was to keep it 60 minutes - and we did it as far as draft coverage goes (about 55). But we did spend the last 10 minutes talking about what the next steps could be now that Craig Kimbrel is no longer an option.

As always, all of our podcasts are available here or you can download directly from iTunes here.

Thanks, Jeremy,

 

Enjoyed listening.Personally, I think your less than 1% on signing the two Stillwater kids is low.If they can save $1.0mm+ in the top 10 rounds, they could offer them $625k each.Considering it includes college, you just never know.  

 

Agree it is a long shot and wouldn't put a big probability on it, say 3-5%.So maybe we are saying the same thing and just view the percentages a bit different.

If they had any inkling they could save over $1m, they would have drafted differently from Rounds 11 on... to save a significant amount of their draft pool for two of their really late picks... it wouldn't happen.

 

They have Plan A, B, C and contingencies for those plans. Signing those two would be like Plan C's third contingency. 

 

They get to have some dialogue with them and their reps and that's the value they are getting out of those picks. 

 

But, yeah, we are saying the same thing... it's not happening. I'm just saying 100-1 is closer than 20-1 or 33-1.
