Fran isn't ignorant when evaluating talent. And he isn't stupid enough to offer 2 spots in October to these guys without a good reason. I'm guessing he has witnessed a remarkable progress in growth and strength, along with substantial improvement in skill in a relatively short period of time. And so he decided to lock them up now while they are still under the radar, before someone else starts sniffing around and maybe they start sniffing back. This way in 3 years he won't have to read about how people can't believe he let Kenyon Murray's kids of all players get away!After reading two articles on the Twins recruitment since last spring, Fran has been watching them for months.
Welcome aboard boys
Welcome to the HAWKS fellas!
