Boras Demands For Alvarez, Hosmer Leaked?

Kiley McDaniel reports rumors of Scott Boras' asking price for '08 draftees Pedro Alvarez and Eric Hosmer.  He's hearing a $9.5MM big league deal for Alvarez and a $7MM bonus for Hosmer - steep demands.

Hosmer, a high school first baseman, has been compared to Casey Kotchman by Baseball America.  He's a top ten pick.  Alvarez, one of the top talents in the draft, plays third base for Vanderbilt but may end up at first.  He figures to go within the first four picks (Rays, Pirates, Royals, Orioles) for sure.

By the way, the Reds have the seventh pick, and BA's Jim Callis thinks they'll go for a pitcher.  He names Shooter Hunt, Tanner Scheppers, and Tim Melville as the main candidates.
