Athletics Agree With First-Round Pick Choice

The Athletics reached an agreement worth $2MM with first-round pick Michael Choice, reports Jim Callis of Baseball America.  The bonus is slightly over MLB's slot recommendation of $1.836MM. 

The A's drafted Choice tenth overall in June out of the University of Texas-Arlington.  BA praised Choice for his power and wrote that some scouts believe he may be able to stick in center field.  Choice and Christian Colon are the only top ten picks to have signed so far.

Mr. Dierkes, you could have gone with a nauseating pun headline, like “A’s Agree With First-Round Choice” or something. You didn’t. You’re a better man for it, and don’t think it’s unappreciated.

Took me a minute to realize the end of that headline wasn’t redundant.
