****s goin down tonight, believe the deadline is 12:01AM Tuesday.

I'm hearing Hultzen wants $13 million from the Mariners and Cole wants $15 million from the Pirates. ( http://twitter.com/#!/SI_JonHeyman/status/103205090382458881 )

also Kevin Goldstein ( https://twitter.com/#!/Kevin_Goldstein ) is reporting Matt Purke may sign with the Nationals..

Should be interesting. Hoping the Phillies can sign a couple of their over-slot guys.

Looks like Jays aren't getting Beede

This may mean little or nothing, but I'm told the gap between the Jays and Beede right now is over seven figures.

Hultzen pls go. Dude was shocked he was picked that early now he thinks he's worth Strasburg money. If he wants that much I hope we let him walk.

We received a text from Bubba Starling's mom suggesting it will probably be 11 o'clock or later before there's news of his signing.
"

that's all I see when I searched his name on twitter.

EDIT - someone just posted that Starling has decided to sign with the Royals. don't know if it's legit or not though.

Fukk football Archie Bradley, sign your deal! Trevor Bauer raped and pillaged in his first AA start, Tyler Skaggs has been raping AA, and Jarrod Parker has raped AA since July outside of one bad start. AZ wants more pitching studs down on the farm!

Nats just signed Purke and Goodwin. Bradley to Dbacks is done too. *Fukking Nats are going to be nasty in 5-7 or so years if these prospects pan out.

#Nationals give 3rd-rder Matt Purke 4-yr big lg deal. Details to come, total guarantee close to No. 3 pick Trevor Bauer ($4.4 mil)

damn. lotta money, but it could be a steal considering he has the talent to go #1 overall next year if he is healthy.

Nationals have spent soooo much money in recent drafts.

Pirates & Nationals got two players no one thought would sign.

I remember reading a reputable writer say there was 100% chance Bell doesn't sign lol.

I guess Boras was just bluffing with the 6.5M and still will be going to Texas.


Purke is interesting. He fell for more than just signability. 4+MM is a big risk on an injured player.

richest owner in baseball so he doesn't give a single ****

they're building a legit top farm system. even if Purke doesn't pan out, Rendon is still a beast.

Taillon, Cole, Heredia, Allie. that could be INSANE.

Pirates will spend at least 16.5M on this draft.

building? With Purke and Rendon added to Harper, Cole and Norris... id say the Nats have the top system in baseball. those 5 are all top 50 prospects and Rendon and Harper are top 10 prospects.*

you still put Norris up there with those guys? he's really struggled this year in AA.

by the way Rendon got $7.2 million guaranteed.

the total is predicted to be around $16 million for the top 4 picks.

I still believe in Norris and from what ive read a lot still believe.

The Goodwin sign is very nice as well. He would be a top 5 pick in the shallower 2012 draft if he had gotten to South Carolina. He should crack most top 100 lists this off season.*

what about Brad Peacock? he made the midseason top 50 but I've read a lot his "stuff" isn't that great and he's playing above his ceiling.

wow I just read this: Approx. $42 mil for Strasburg, Harper, Rendon, Meyer, Goodwin and Purke

damn

Jays first overall pick Tyler Beede decided to go to Vanderbilt instead of join the Jays, despite being offered 2.3 million signing bonus. Reason? A tweet of his says that 'an education is priceless". Actually, no, it isn't. You can go back if you want, but you're not going to get 2.3 million by going to Vanderbilt.

Whoever was advising that kid is a retard.

Blue Jays ownership is worth over $50 billion

$5 million beats the hell out of playing for OU, good call Bradley. Dbacks minor league pitching prospect pool is officially stacked. Filthy mcnasty.


Blue Jays ownership is worth over $50 billion

50 billion dollar net worth, 61 million dollar payroll. Seems like you've got the richest cheap ass in sports running your team. (Still a cheap ass even if we threw in whatever god awful amount you would have been paying Vernon)

damn

with the infusion of all the talent from this draft a lot of players are going to slide in the off season prospect rankings. So I dont know. Peacock doesnt really grade as a front of the rotation arm and some scouts say he may be better suited at the back end of the bullpen.
