    It should be this week officially. They just take forever to do everything. Nothing to worry about. Just annoying.

    Johnson might have 70 hit and 70 power

    They also only have one DSL team and lots of players returning there next year.

    I put them in a similar tier. Cespedes has a better arm and can play all outfield spots and run. Colas has big power but is definitely a corner guy.

    I mean I'm not "sure" but I'm pretty confident they aren't just signing 3 players

    Oscar Colas for $2.7 million, Erick Hernandez for $1 million and Angel Cruz for $400K. That leaves about $1 million in total funds left. I'm sure they have other signings.

    I know this is just a tired joke at this point but they aren't allowed to trade money in this period.

    RHP Angel Cruz bonus is reportedly $400K

    It's still pretty significant. I reported on it this week on twitter. He's getting $2.7 million. If he comes to the U.S., he pays taxes in both countries and it'd be a minimum of $950K. That's a pretty big dent. Sounds like it might not matter though which is good for his career and good for the club.

    I don’t know specifically. The Sox are giving him $2.7 million. He has residency in the DR but not the US. Since he’s signing in January, he’ll spend the year in the DR so he receives the majority of his bonus. If they brought him right over, he wouldn’t. Same thing happened with Vera, Yolbert, Robert, etc. I don’t have specifics as to why though. Anyone work in tax law?

    Yeah I’ll never understand their strategy

    I have no idea what they're doing with the rest of their money. I've heard that they like Cesar Prieto but I don't think they have enough $$ for that. I'm assuming they have multiple $400-$600K signings that I don't know about

    I think he just started to feel uncomfortable with the subjectivity of the whole thing and he hasn't seen a lot of these guys since they were like 14-15 so he doesn't want to be super wrong if they suddenly grew like 6 inches or something. Also, the situation in Venezuela is really bad and it's actually dangerous to say that "Venezuelan shortstop X will soon have $5 million" etc because it's a legit danger to their family potentially.

    FutureSox: Positional Rankings Series

    We published the group of catchers today. It's a weak spot in the system but I've heard good things about Adam Hackenberg and Baseball America will rank him in their top 30 when the handbook is released.

    FWIW: Baseball America's big board ranks players by signing bonus now instead of as a true talent ranking.
