Marlins just paid their 1st rounder a $2 million bonus. Indians just signed their 2nd rounder with a $1.85 million bonus.

I sadi yes and I believe that.

He'll be signed unless his demands are ridiculous.

I voted no because my predictions are always wrong :D. My gut tells me he won't sign though. I think Jocketty's comments said it all.

“I don’t want our guys sitting around till midnight waiting,” he said. “We’re going to give them an earlier deadline than that. I’m not sure when exactly it will be.”

For the first time, I'm starting to think he doesn't...

That makes two of us. Reds waited too long to really heat up the negotiating

Perhaps you could explain to us the Reds negotiating stance.

Becuase I really have no idea what happened.

Simply waiting until 11:00 is not the right thing to do. Jocko's quote is pretty evident that this wasn't going to get done and that was early in the afternoon

I'm guessing the handshake is going on as we speak...

KendallRogersPG Kendall Rogers With the signing deadline 20 minutes away, I'm hearing that it's iffy on whether Robert Stephenson goes to college or signs with #Reds.

This is one screwed up system though, wish it didn't have to be like this.

THey didn't wait until 11:00. That's not true.

I'm not upset at Walt, Stephenson, or the agent.

Don't hate the player, hate the game.

I'm kinda surprised so many people were so pessimistic about him signing.
