The drafting has been above reproach. The FA signings have been very bad. This is a draft thread.

of course...but lets bring up other teams and avoid the call out PA :clap:

Looks like Holt signed.  MLB listed in the transactions that he was assigned to Auburn.

If so, seems like he is a nice CC lefty

I like how the mid rounder college pitchers are all signing, lets get them out there playing and moving up the ladder.

The Nats are going to be busy as hell on August 14th since they don't want to sign any of these guys sooner.

Dude, it's not a function of not "wanting to" sign these guys. Scott Boras clients and other amateur big shots wait until the last day. It's how the process works. It's how the process ALWAYS works.

I went to a short season A game this Sunday and it was full of non-prospects. I wonder if this tactic is hurting short season and rookie ball .

Yeah, makes sense since all the over slot guys get held back till the end.

Yeah the Nats' short-season affiliates is full of mostly mediocre late round older college draftees and floundering international players.

Pretty much same with the GCL team.

Any news on Meyer? He isn't pitching a summer league. Why not sign quickly and get some games in this year?

More worried that Matt Purke hasn't joined a summer league. We need to see that dude pitch some games before offering him $3-4 million.

I wonder if this means it's worse than thought and he's just resting and planning on going back to school next year? They can't offer him the kind of money he wants if he doesn't pitch.

Because he can rest his arm, decompress from school and college baseball, get the money he wants, and then play later in the year.

Meyer has nothing to gain from pitching now.  Purke has everything to gain.

Purke's in a tough situation. I think he needs some time off to rest and heal, and clear his mind. Its got to be frustrating to keep taking a couple weeks off to come back and not be full strngth.

I think he's resting, and doing a full rehab of building his arm back up.

Playing in the Cape if confident in his stuff is the best way to maximize his value. But I do think something can be said for getting multiple looks at him in bullpens and medical evals. If he's healthy and has the velocity back up, even in the pen,  there's some level of confidence that he'll be good to go.

Wouldn't Purke cost far less than Maya?
