Still nearly $60K in the hole after 5 signings. I'm guessing they'll save a little money on Kay and Tiberi and that will allow them to sign one or two high schoolers.

You would think that jumping up to take Tiberi and Alonso (higher than both were rated) could indicate that they had soft agreements with both at underslot rates. Remains to be seen...

Hope so. The other possibility is that our new scouting director doesn't know how to do basic addition.

Tanous was the scouting director before.

I think Paez will be underslot.

I thought Depo was the HSIC last year. (head scout in charge). No?

I just hope they figure out a way to sign at least some of these guys. I remember past years there were long shots who didn't sign, but they've usually signed pretty much everyone they've had a good shot at signing, Stankowitz being the only exception, but in his case, they just turned a #75 pick into #76 a year later so not a big deal.

Welp, I was wrong and you guys were right on Cone. I still might be right on our scouting director failing basic addition though. Gotta wait and see what the first 5 sign for.

83% of the bonus pool is allocated to these five, so they're the important ones for determining how much money we have to spend.

Still in talks with multiple HS guys. A few have already been told they will only be getting offers if 11 and 12 don't sign and/or they can save money on the top 3.
