Twins get the last pick in Round B (#75 overall).

I'm kind of hoping they'll give this up to sign a free agent.

Papers...business papers.

Well, an extra pick is nice. Wish it had been a first rounder.

That pick will be given up only if they sign one of the following:

 

Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas, Lorenzo Cain, Jake Arrieta, Wade Davis, Lance Lynn, Alex Cobb, Greg Holland and Carlos Santana

 

I think that they can sign better free agents and avoid giving that pick away. Or (what a concept) trade some of the previous years' picks, and some veterans for better players.

A trade would be fine and I would be on board - but lots of unrealistic expectations in trade offers around here.

I'd gladly give up that pick for almost everyone on your list.

He couldn't even be offered one under the current system.
