    Question (since no local outlet in Tampa or this site has mentioned it). Is Arroyo related to Bronson Arroyo - who also went to Hernando.

    I would too, and not just for the money. Just as important, IMO, is the commitment you get by being a first rounder. Usually at least 5 years to make it to the bigs. Football is much more volatile in that respect. If you even get that far, you've got 2-3 years tops to make it or they throw you on the junk heap. This is what happens when a league is able to foist its player development on another entity.

    Cord Sandberg drafted 89th overall by the Phillies.

    I am guessing he won't be playing QB for Mullen and MSU.

    Here's hoping that Puk is dropping down on the draft board because he's told teams he's coming to UF.:yes:

    Bleed, sometimes it helps to tell us what round and pick that it.

    Just so you know you're not talking to yourself.

    We're almost at end of sixth with only Brady being taken from 3rd to 6th. Does this bode well for us?

    According to BaseballAmerica.com, the 2012 slot value of pick 141 was $320,800. It continues to go down fairly significantly from there. Here's the link to show what the picks were worth last year.

    Doesnt that mean the most the player can be offered? And, isnt that a full contract price including signing bonus?

    That's how I read it gatorfan. Also, it looks like MLB teams need to have a good idea in the first 10 rounds that they can sign the player they are after. Otherwise, it penalizes the team from being able to use the full amount of money they have available. From the 2012 baseballamerica article:

    If my kid was drafted in the first round, I'd make him go pro.

    Puk will make a good project for Sully.
