    Curtiss didn't have any student loans, then, I take it? Great - that's all of the top ten (and #11) Twins' choices signed. Who remains unsigned, and are there still guys that are not likely to sign with the Twins this year?

    With 200K + to throw at the HS kids, at least one of them has got to bite.

    Assuming the money doesn't stay in the bank.

    200K is a tidy nest egg for an 18 year old.

    There might be a better list out there.
    Might not be up to date

    Wow. looks they are doing an exceptional job of signing with getting the top 17 and only missing on 4 of their top 30 picks. Is that normal that they sign that many? I see a couple people have posted that they hope Chase Tatum is signed. Is he good enough prospect the Twine would go over slot to sign him? Thanks for the links guys

    Signing Chase Tatum to an over slot deal might raise some eyebrows. But signing any decreased wrestler might get people to be critical of the front office.

    McCarthy Tatum, though, could be pursued. Is he good enough? Who knows. But they have money to throw around, so it is worth trying to find out.

    Doogie just tweeted that the Twins didn't sign anyone else but are going to sign a non-drafted FA (anything over $100k would count against the cap). This means they left money on the table which is disappointing to say the least.
    Papers...business papers.

    Yep. And their GCL team results have been less than inspiring, besides. Are they counting on all the low-cost Intl guys to fill the gaps?

    $200K is essentially pocket change really. They have surplus players now for every roster and an overflow crowd in Extended from what I can tell. That's not enough to cover the training table bill in Extended.

    Non issue. Just so happened to save money. Nothing to be disappointed about. It isnt enough money to sign some of the tough sign guys. Moneys saved probably go somewhere else...even though 200k is like a value menu burger in mlb budget terms.

    I'm not really sure why its disappointing that they left some money on the table... maybe the statement is just incomplete. They could have easily offered the rest of their bonus pool to one of the players they did sign and then they wouldn't have any of that pool money left. Signing 18 of their top 20 picks (including the first 17) seems pretty decent.

    $200,000 is a pitence - it could be a lot worse. See the Astros who cheaped out on the #1 pick and didn't sign Aiken (1st rd), Nix (5th rd), and Marshall (21st rd) because of money. The Astros will be shooting for the first 2 picks of next year's draft. Aiken becomes just the third #1 pick to not sign. The other 2 have ties to the Twins - Danny Goodwin by the Chisox in 1971 (later became a Twin), and Twins pick in 1983 - Tim Belcher. Unfortunately, back in 1983, you didn't get a replacement pick if you didn't sign a first round pick.

    I'm not suggesting they need bodies, but they could have been more strategic, used the $200k plus the money from going over the cap (but not enough to lose a pick) and taken a harder sign, perhaps a high school arm with some upside. Probably doesn't work out long term, but it was an opportunity wasted to acquire more talent.

    White on Rehab

    18th rounder White signed but is rehabbing a broken hamate bone. Was told he signed for $80k.
