    Yeah, me too... his outing in Omaha must have increased his price tag. I'm sure it's tougher to get a read on asking prices with teams being active during the draft.

    Well, the Twins are stockpiling height for sure.

    There have been no new developments with DeMuth or Halstead, but I would guess those will go to tomorrow's deadline.

    The Twins will be signing Ivory Thomas, who was a college senior. He will report to the GCL affiliate. I'm not sure if he'll be in the fold by tomorrow or not. (Deadline doesn't apply to college seniors.) But I'm told it will be done soon. Not the news we we're hoping to hear, but semi-news nonetheless.

    Any idea if the Twins are willing go over their pool amount significantly to DeMuth or Halstad?

    I would guess the answer to the previous two posts are the same: Very close to no chance.

    At this point very little if not zero. Unless the Twins are willing to pay taxes, which I doubt they will, I don't see them signing any of the kids left. Add in the potential of not signing DeMuth and the draft looks a little weaker than it did before.

    None that has been reported on. There is a slim chance, very slim, they signed a late rounder for $100k

    I believe you mean Seth Wagner...he was supposed to go to Penn State on a partial scholarship but obviously, decided to go to the Twins! Sounds like a definite project, but hey, I won't turn down a lefty with that type of size.

    Ha, I think this was unintentional, but oh very hilarious considering the recent Forbes article. Twins pay their taxes. Zing!

    Odds are good the Twins said they'd pay for his college if he didn't make it. I've heard this is somewhat common for these types of signings, and I would think any kid with a partial scholarship would jump all over that.

    6'8" lefty... wow. How hard does he throw?

    He sits 85-89 hits 91-92

    I played high school ball with him this year
