At least Ray came in underslot. A number of posters assured everyone that he was not an underslot guy but it turns out he was by almost $300,000. That's the thing, you can pontificate all you want, but fact checking can come back to get you because things actually turn out one way or another. Here, Ray is in fact an underslot guy.

Some random thoughts:

Very impressed with the haul of prospects Brewers managed in this draft and international class.

Gotta think David Stearns will end up be known as a rebuild guru after helping in Houston and clearly having Milwaukee on the right track. Hopefully a big market team like the LA Angels or NY Yankees do not notice.

Using every last pre-penalty penny in the pool is quite impressive. No waste. McClanahan got paid like a 2nd rounder. I hope it pays off.

I said I thought Montgomery should get an A if he signed Clark and McClanahan and I am quite stoked that they were able to get them done. These guys clearly had a plan and executed.

I would be floored at this point if Crow or Lillis sign. But you never know.

Kind of surprised Morrison and Garcia haven't signed. The odds are against Morrison getting much more than $100k as a senior sign next year. Garcia I'm in the dark about - don't think he's committed to a 4-year college, but maybe he thinks he can boost his stock this upcoming season.

As an aside, if we sign our top ten rounders, I give Ray a B. If we get McClanahan OR Clark, B+. If we get both it's an A. I also think Morrison would be a very solid signing.


How about McClanahan, Clark, AND Morrison? Love the infusion of talent we're getting.

Not sure how anyone can be upset with this draft. We got prospects who seem to have high ceilings and we actually signed them.

A source says Brewers 19th rounder Zach Clark's bonus was $125k. Athletic outfielder signed earlier this week, headed to AZL Brewers.

I'd have to do some research to confirm, but I do not remember the Brewers ever signing so many of their draft picks before. Even including the "wasted" (not my word) picks of Horn and Serrano, the Brewers signed 87.5% of their guys. And that could increase in the next week if Aguilar signs and/or they somehow entice Crow or Lillis with $100k.

Say the Brewers offered Crow a $100000 signing bonus along with them paying for college expenses should he decide to attend college later on in case baseball doesn't work out. Would those college expenses count towards the bonus pool?

No. I believe they offer full college expenses to all of their draft picks. Not sure how or why it doesn't count against the pool, but it doesn't. Maybe because it's a contingent "bonus"? Or maybe MLB doesn't want to tax education.

I'm curious what are the ramifications for going over the bonus pool allotment? I know there is no way our FO would allow us to lose our 1st rounder, so are we taxed more heavily?

I think it's standard operating procedure for all draft picks with all teams. Given that, there'd be no reason to tax when everyone's providing the same benefit. College expenses weren't the part of the system that was inequitable.

I read recently that there are some strings attached, something like going full time and in consecutive semesters, I believe.

That’s the only thing Chicago’s good for: to tell people where Wisconsin is.

Thank you I got a little nervous when it said we went over our bonus pool. This clears it up for me.

Calling him an "underslot guy" is pretty misleading. Unless you are Bryce Harper or Stephen Strasburg, these days virtually all of the top picks get paid well below what the recommended slot value is. So while technically true, "underslot guy" suggests he was a cost-saving reach at #5, which is objectively false.

Random question but does anyone know how much we offered Jemile Weeks back in 2005? I read something a couple years ago but can't find it now that we offered him $750K but that seems like a ton for an 8th round pick.
