Last hour...

I wish I could say I have dug up something....It being 60 minutes to the deadline...

But not a peep from anyone.  My phone has been quiet.  Not a text message in sight.

Things should pick up soon...I hope.

 

Update 11:30:

30 Minutes and counting...nothing concrete...

 

Update 11:38:

Alonso (7th Overall Pick) signs with the Reds after the Reds said take it or leave it earlier in the day.  More signings should come quickly from other teams.  Hopefully including the Pirates.

 

Update 11:45:

No word yet....

 

Update 11:50:

see above...nada

 

Update 11:55:

RING-RING 

"Mr. Boras line 1."

"Tell him to hold, I am on the phone with Scheppers rep."

 

Update Midnight:

Ut-oh.  Give it 20 minutes before giving up hope.

Scheppers says no....Nothing on Pedro.

 

Update 12:40

Update 12:41

Alvarez signs straight $6M deal...Minor League deal.  Only 2 first rounder's not signed.  Yanks and Nats can't come up with the cash....Poor Yankees.  It must suck to be in such a small market.
