Does anybody on here ever remember so many ups not getting signed? Does this happen to other teams as well? I mean we signed only half our drafted players. Does the international signings play into this?


My uninformed guess is probably a combination of who they take early (i.e. how much over slot it will cost to sign him) and the international guys. You gotta draft someone so if you don't need bodies or you like the guys you already have you might as well just draft a HS kid who won't sign.

"Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power......He probably has a future as a backup infielder if he can stop rolling over to third base and shortstop." Keith Law, 2006

Most years the team has had more than 15 unsigned other than the years (2015, 2016) when they were restocking numbers in the minor league system. Most years they sign 20-25 drafted players.

One of the lowest signing pools in majors, drafted ton of high school, junior college, and sophomore eligible kids with leverage.... bad combination for signing numbers. Doesn’t bother me though. Take risks to get better talent that may cost you more than draft and sign a lot of guys who are fillers

McCalvy says we signed 23 out of 40. Who's the last one?

Matulovich signs.


Wareham’s Andrew Vaughn (California) looked like the best hitter on the Cape when he departed for Team USA. Now another Golden Bear wearing Gatemen colors is emerging as the league’s best pitcher.

Oh, yeah, baby! I reeled one in! [wink]

Another key, drafting a guy in the first round who is going to demand hundreds of thousands over slot. That will pretty much sink your pool really fast. Draft someone who will go underslot and you are talking half a million dollars extra to throw around.

Not saying you should do that, but that really effects things and makes it tough to get Cabell.

I also wonder if the team tried to draft a lot of “maybes” late and then try to sign the college seniors/safe picks as undrafted signings rather then spend a selection on those guys.

IIRC in the past a lot of 20-30 round picks were safe picks, low upside college players. And now more higher upside HS, and maybe because of websites/Twitter but I noticed more after draft signings.

Plus more international signings I think
