Q: Mike from Orlando asks:
Theres been a lot of talk about big market teams being able to go over slot to sign guys. On average, what is the difference in draft budgets between a big market team (say, the Yankees) and a small market team (say, the Royals)?
A:

Jim Callis: The Royals aren't going to get off cheap, because they're going to pay full value for the No. 2 overall pick. But in general, the average club spends about $5 million. The average last year was $4.8 million (not counting draft-and-follow signings from this spring). The bottom five clubs averaged $2.5 million, the top five $6.9 million. Interestingly, your smaller-revenue clubs often spend a lot because they have high picks, and your larger-revenue clubs spend less because they forfeit picks as free-agent compensation. The Yankees ($6.6 million) and Royals ($6.5 million) spent almost the exact same amount last year. The large-market Mets spent just $2.3 million, by contrast.

That's because we spent all our cash on International guys like Fernando!, Guerra, and Pena.
