    While I'd be happy with Palacios, I might rather see them spend $500K on one of the better amateur international SS.

    Specifically, Gonzalez, Hernandez, Aracena and Torres - all guys who appear in the BA top 20 and haven't been clearly linked to other teams (that I've seen).

    Wouldn't the amateur, international SSs come from a different pool of money (the international pool)? Are these pools interrelated?

    Bynum seems like a good target, too. I hope the Reds offer them each $125,000 which would be the maximum we could offer without paying a tax. If they both sign, we are right at the pool. If neither of them bite, I would hope the Reds continually offer a bit more, even if it means the Reds are subject to a little bit of tax.

    They are in that they come from the same ultimate source. They don't in that there are different caps and penalties in place. How the Reds think about the two, I have no idea. I'm just suggesting if they have an extra $500K-$1M in their pocket to spend on acquiring amateur talent in the next month, I'd prefer: 1. it be spent and 2. it be spent on high upside middle infield prospects.

    I think this is correct...in that it's a different pool. In some ways it doesn't make sense, but that has been my understanding as well.

    OK. That makes sense. I would strongly prefer the Reds spend most of their available funds on prospects, rather than replacement level talent in the major leagues. I would hope there is money for the Reds to sign both high upside international talent and the two remaining BA Top 500 players that they drafted.

    I hope I'm not alarming anyone by posting in this thread, but with just 4 days left, do we think Palacios or anyone else for that matter will still be signed?

    Any word on the bonus that Kennan Kish got?

    Maybe the better question is 'how's his health?' He missed much of the 2013 season and all of 2014 following hip surgery. Further, he is 24 years old. Seems like a long shot at this point. If he received a bonus, I would be surprised. Still, he is the kind of story I tend to pull for.

    Are there any other signings or was that it?
