  • TurdoftheFerg

    If at all possible, could you guys put up the actual value of their contract so we can see the difference between slot and actual?

  • DeGrominator
  • TurdoftheFerg

    Doesn’t have them neither.

  • DeGrominator

    Thye usually put it up when they get it. I think they only know that people signed right now. Will probably find out how much in the next week.

  • TurdoftheFerg

    I know Dibrell signed for $380K. Callis announced it on Twitter.

  • Valdschippers

    my best friend’s step-mother makes $85 hourly on the computer . She has been fired from work for nine months but last month her pay check was $17089 just working on the computer for a few hours. see it here ++++++++++

  • Jason Mercado

    Still would be small Miracles if Van Eyk or Eder signs. Eder has 1st round top 10 pick based on: School, LHP, Stuff already.

  • Rocky Thompson

    I have not heard $$$ mentioned, but the college seniors are usually signed for around $10k. I believe picks 6 – 10 were all college seniors.

  • TurdoftheFerg

    Vientos signed at $1.5M, slot value is $1,094,700

  • TexasGusCC

    Excellent. They got a steal.

  • Jason Mercado

    That’s the draft pick Hardcore Met fans will be looking at for the next few years. I really hope this is a blue chip, power hitting prospect. Good looking kid too, he’d be Loved by Mets fans if he succeeds.

  • Djmurphy

    Yes. I think thats why they took brodey where they did. I don’t think they will sign him unless it’s way under slot. That pick had me scratching my head and I immediately thought of teddy stenkewitz. They never even made teddy an offer they had other plans for that money.

  • Djmurphy

    He had leverage. They had to overpay to keep him from going to school.

  • Djmurphy

    He’s my favorite pick in this draft.

  • TurdoftheFerg

    Except if a bonus guy doesn’t sign, they lose that slot money. The only thing they save is any overslot $ they would have to give. Stank wanted overslot cash, Brodey won’t. It’s not exactly a fair comparison.
