Let's say Baty at 3.7, Wolf at 1.7 and Allan at 3.0. That's $8.4m; Mets have $8.63m to play with with the non-penalty overage.

That's 250k for seniors rounds 4-10. Tough to do. Even cheaping out at $50k for a few makes it a close margin.

You could almost justify them going way over, and taking a hit on next year's draft because they got a first rounder in Allen.

I think they need to probably aim at $8m for the three, then they have a more doable 4-10.


Ironically, the seniors have a bit of leverage since they know if their slot disappears the Mets have less money to spend on the top 3...example, 4-5 have $500k slots

I know if a team fails to sign a 1st rd pick they get a comp pick the next year. Is that the only round it's true for?

This draft makes me think of a strategy to completely blow past the bonus pool if it would be worth it...

Full Strategy:
- Take the top ranked pick evey selection regardless of financial demands... This will give you 40 likely high quality picks...
- Pay then what their worth... Yes this may end up costing 140M $ after the 100% penalty...
- Incur the top penalty of loss of 2 future 1st round picks.
(It’s likely you will have drafted atleast 4 or 5 1st Round Caliber Guys)
- Have all these top quality prospects grow in your farm system at the same time getting them to the majors at roughly the same window of time...

Typically they have to sign the #1 pick then all the rest fall into place.
This year, they need to sign the #3 pick first, then #1 and #2.

But unlike previous years, every pick after #3 can be signed for minor league minimum at almost any time. I suspect everyone who hasn't signed immediately is either in college playoff baseball, or just contingency picks that they will only sign if someone else opts out.

Can't wait to begin to see the dollar figures for the 5-10 round signings.

If a team doesn't sign their first or 2nd rounder (but offers 40% of slot), they get compensated with a pick the year later, 1 pick lower.

There's no compensation if they fail to sign their 3rd rounder, which makes signing him pretty important, cause a 3rd round pick isn't something they want to lose.

Third round and second round signings are important more for the loss of slot money. If Baty signed bit Wolf and Allan did not, that's a whole lot of money that can't be used rounds 11-40.

I guess that's why they picked some HSers in those as a hedge for any overage from Baty.

Very high risk strategy, but in a miracle, could make it a watershed draft.
