Fair enough and you may be right, but paying for a HS'ers college is usually not counted as part of the signing bonus and it's fairly often picked up by the team. I'm not sure it's fair to count unless it's counted for everybody.

Oh, I'm not saying it should be counted as part of the bonus. I know most of the time schooling is also part of the agreement when a player signs his first contract. Just curious how that was handled with Marquez since it was know up front that he would be doing both.

Potentially an amazing haul of arms going to the SEC.

What in the world could he have done to his wrist for that to happen?!?!? If he doesn't change course and go JUCO, Mississipi State just got a haul to rival Vandy in Stewart and Ginn

Still haven't seen anything more than hearsay regarding stewart looking into JUCO, so it's looking that way. Though stylistically different, I think the situation compares well to Brady Singer. Long, gangly, fast arm capable of holding low to mid-90s, a power breaking ball that is unfair to college hitters when on, and only there due to medical questions. The crazy part is that Stewart is rated much higher than Singer was, and if he starts filling out and ratchets up that fastball, he's got the potential to be the best arm to come out of college since Strasburg.

Love Kelenic, but Stewart was the goods. Sounds like they may have low-balled him.

It's very possible, seems Anthopolous has a bit of a history with this issue.

They have to have offered 40% to maintain the slot. So at least they offered that. Seems to me, a better percentage would be flipped.... 2/3 of slot. Yes, it takes a bit of leverage out of the hands of the teams, but protects the good faith in signing the drafted player.
