    Doesn’t that put the Red Sox over their budget and they lose their next 2 first round picks? There was a report last week that said Boston had only 13k left to spend before they would go so far over budget MLB would punish them with loss of their next 2 first round picks (they would already get fined for going over budget).

      That’s assuming that Johnson and Maddox sign for slot, which they aren’t expected to.

    No, they have to go more than 20% over to lose 2 1sts. They’d just lose 1.

  3. How does the Mariners’ 3rd round pick have a lower slot than the Giants’ 5th round pick? I think Diaz’s slot should be higher than $186K.

    And now that I click on the Twitter link, Law was saying that he was $186K below slot. So the slot should be $486K.

      We have to get Zunino at like 4.3M compaired to a 5ish slot value. But given the whole Z and his dad (a scout) are friends so they should work out something to help the team.
