    I definitely think that the earlier signing deadline is very instrumental in this. Had Hudson Boyd and Travis Harrison played last year instead of waiting until mid-August to sign, they may have spent time this year in Beloit as well.

    I don't think indicates any shift in philosophy at all.

    complete nonsense. Prospects have been promoted slowly for the last ten years because the Twins have had very few (if any) prospects deserving of a fast track. That's the difference with the current farm system.

    I think the earlier deadline for signing is a huge help. But Berrios really didnt have anything to prove. And Buxton is simply too talented not to be challenged
