Why have the Twins not done any signings? On MLB Trade Rumors, there are plenty of announcements of other teams coming to agreements with their picks, but I have heard nothing about the Twins working on signing their picks.

I know how you feel though. I wish they'd all hurry up and sign. At least this year the deadline is pushed up so we don't have to wait as long to find out who signs and who doesn't.

Saw that on MLBTR also. Also read on there that Correa got a 4.8m signing bonus and read in the Pio Press that Buxton is expected to get around 6.2m. Does that have to do with the players representation, there signability or both?
06-08-2012, 03:32 PM #8
oops "their" signability

"only" 5 is an amazing number....that part of the new agreement has worked (even if the rest of the changes are not likely to produce the results intended).Win Twins.

Thanks, heard the same thing about Appel and Boras. Do you think the new slotting will steer some kids away from Boras in the future. Don't like the guy, of course I'm still bitter about the Travis Lee situation.

Everyone who posts here makes me think "ooh, there has been a signing," but alas . . .

$6.2 million is not the recommended or "slot" bonus for the 2nd pick. It is the maximum amount allowed without using up the cap room assigned to other picks. Most reports get that point wrong. I seriously doubt Buxton will get the maximum. I'd be very surprised if he got much more than $5 million.
So far as the rapidity of signings, some teams are probably more cavalier with respect to pre-draft negotiations (which are against the rules).
