    I use Google drive, Apple backup, and a external hard drive. The Apple back up syncs all my devices together, so if one fails it easy to get the info off the other as well as my account thru Apple, I don't think about it, it just does it. Google drive is free up to like 20 GB, but you need to be hooked up to the internet to retrieve or save the info. The external hard drive is a one time buy. the thought of losing data and more importantly family photos, makes me not want to trust any system.

    I checked on this... the source I talked to wasn't 100% sure but didn't think anybody from 11-40 has tapped into the pool money.

    It sounds like the Twins will make a run at most of the unsigned guys, but admit its hard to tell who would sign.

    Google Drive is nice - I also use it for backups - but it's only built to back up folders, not the computer.

    And should your HDD fail, having a complete back up of the computer will save hours during the restore process.

    The Twins have another $375k they could go over their bonus pool with, bringing their total (with the savings on earlier picks) to about $600k

    So, if they have $375K left to spend, they could sign (potentially): three guys for $200K and one for $175. That would be great!

    The additional 375,000 is the 5% of their total bonus pool that they can spend without losing next years 1st round pick?

    Yup

    Source tells me 2nd-rounder Nick Burdi's physical will take place on Sunday or Monday.

    What about our 5th rounder. I here he was signed to a 350k contract but Brock hasn't updated the first post to show that yet?

    Pretty sure Reed (#5) signed--pitched today for Elizabethton vs. Pulaski... plus he's on the Twins draft roster page as signing on 06/18/2014. 350k according to Bollinger.

    Reed added to the list. Only missing Burdi and Curtiss at this point.

    What is a realistic time table for Burdi? I have heard that he could step into a bullpen role soon and I have also heard that they will need to work on his control.

    Well, some experts believe he should start in AA, and be here this fall or next year (while his arm is healthy and strong). Others believe he should "earn" his way up through the ladder.

    I'd guess the Twins send him to one of the A level teams, and he maybe makes AA by the end of the year.

    IMO, the Twins love veteran relievers. He'll have to really dominate to replace the guys that have "proved" it at the MLB leve.
    Lighten up Francis....

    I'm hoping he starts in Cedar Rapids... this week (mainly because I'll be there Friday through Sunday).
