Perhaps Terry Ryan is not the one with his head buried in the sand, johnny dakota.
The Twins have signed a $1.4 mil and $500k guy in the current International period and have tapped most of their international budget. They aren't going cheap.
It would be great for the Twins to sign one of these guys but I really wouldn't count on it. This is one of the few chances teams have to spend unlimited dollars on procuring amateur talent and other teams (with significantly higher revenue streams) will blow the Twins out of the water with their offer.
So far I've not seen specific teams listed as leaders, but wouldn't count Dodgers or A's out.
I'd be happy to sign Diaz, but I understand if they don't sign either. It's high risk, moderate reward. Diaz could just end up being a higher paid Nishioka. Not making a comparison between the two, but both could be flops.
