Draft Roundup: Matusz, Alonso, Hosmer

Let's round up some links concerning the unsigned '08 draft picks.

  • The Orioles haven't made much progress with Brian Matusz, but they haven't gone backward either.  His agent seems cautiously optimistic.
  • Reds top pick Yonder Alonso told the Miami Herald there's a 50-50 chance he doesn't sign and goes back to college.  One of Alonso's "advisors" said the Reds and Alonso were way off on figures.
  • Sam Mellinger says some think Royals top pick Eric Hosmer might be willing to try college.  Hosmer is advised by Scott Boras. Mellinger considers fourth round pick/first round talent Tim Melville the Royals' backup plan.  Ideally, they'll sign both high-ceiling talents.
  • How much of this is just posturing?  We'll know on August 16th.
