    The Twins must just be killing time. Either that or they know something about the signabilty of these guys. They've only drafted 1 college SR and 2 2nd year juco guys today. I wonder what this stratagy is all about. They can't possibly believe these guys are going to sign.

    Timothy Robinson HS LF. Alex Burnett's brother? His scouting video confirms that he looks like a future converted catcher.

    Do you think Round #32 pick, Andrew Ferreira is going to sign with Twins or finish out the two years he has remaining at Harvard?
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    Let's see.... a lifetime of being first in line at every job interview with a Harvard degree......or a resume that shows you traveled the world, seeing E-Town, Beloit, Fort Meyers, New Britain and Rochester.....?

    Maybe the smarty pants already graduated.

    Timothy Robinson, the HS guy the Twins just drafted was good enough to have a profile on the MLB site, sooooo safe bet he's not signing.

    Upon further reflection, is there any chance they are "drafting for need" and are looking for a future replacement at the GM position?

    You make a convincing argument. Sign with the Twins it is.

    Listed as a sophomore, but you're right, he could be on an accelerated academic program. Still, how often do Harvard players get drafted?

    Already graduated from Harvard as a sophomore... smarty pants would indeed be the correct name for him then.

    Kaleb Merck, SR RHP from TCU. Kind of cool to say you were drafted #1000.

    Uh oh. Sat out his true junior year with TJ surgery. I guess the Twins are glad he's gotten it out of the way.

    His video suggests he looks like a Bull in a china shop, big body boy, I think the Twins ask he try catcher. Does he buy the notion that that is his quick ticket through the minors? and What will Burnett recommend he do?

    Throne is a decent basketball player at D2 Morningside in Iowa, slim chance he signs.

    Robinson will be offered money if they Twins have any left at the deadline. The same way they signed Jason Kubel's brother-in-law Michael Tonkin.

    From the looks of it, Robinson will be one of the few guys I hit on this year, but his future (most likely in college) will be in the corner OF.
