Hope he signs well under slot so they will have more money for 11 and 12.

2nd-rder Pete Alonso signs w/@Mets for $909,200 (pick 64 = $1,009,200). Florida 1B, good power, best Gators hitter in postseason. @MLBDraft

Maybe they get Planck or Cleveland. Probably not enough money left for both. Paez maybe goes $50 K under, maybe Kay $100 K under. I don't see too much more than that.

At this point, I think they'll be lucky to get one of them. Even if they save another $300 between Kay and Paez, they'll still won't be able to offer what Planck already turned down.

They're 145,100 under and they can go 383,584.99 over with only a financial penalty, so right now they can offer 100 + 145 + 383 = 628,684.99 , so, Enough to get Cleveland and maybe 1 other lower overslot. With some more savings they might get Planck. I doubt they get both though unless they're really lucky.

Here's a wacky idea: pay the penalty.

Is the max penalty losing a first rounder the next year and a 100% tax on the overage? Not that it fits in this case, but I'm a little surprised I've never heard anyone entertain goin the International route and crushing out a draft of double digit top-100 talent.

The max is losing multiple firsts.

I don't think a couple of hundred grand costs you picks.

It's just the tax.

5% or the first $383,000 is just a 75% tax on the overage. Over that and they lose a first rounder. That's a pretty steep penalty. Teams have absorbed the penalty on the international market, but no team has ever done it for the draft above the initial 5%.
