Any estimates on their combined signing bonuses?

Francis didn't cost too much. But one will never get a good read on him until he gets out of Coors Field

I'm concerned that Schilling is Bip Roberts, though he did hit 7 HR's in 9 atbats earlier this year (no typo)

Neighborgall has Boras, but we've dealt with him before. He also has a back condition, and doesn't throw strikes. Still, too much talent to bypass in the third round

I hate HSers, but the lefty need was too great to pass Lester

the other two need to be "fixed," but the Reds fix up pitchers pretty well. Why not try it in the draft, too?
