The Mardirosian signing pretty much wipes out the savings from the other signings. Hopefully, they can save a little on #9 and #10. I'd like to see them sign Trees.
The Reds announced the signing of four picks from the 2014 First-Year Player Draft on Wednesday. They were right-hander Tejay Antone (fifth round), left-hander Jacob Moody (17th round), right-hander Tyler Parmenter (21st round) and first baseman Paul Kronenfeld (25th round).
Confirms my three favorite picks from this draft- Marshall, Mardirosian and Sparks.
The Reds signed their 9th Round Pick (Brian Hunter) and 10th Round Pick (Seth Varner) for $5,000 each. They are now $275,000 under their slot allotment.

I'm not a man of many words. Read my posts, and you'll see what I mean.
Some people are Optimists (They see the glass 1/2 full).
Others are Pessimists (They see the glass 1/2 empty).
Me, I'm a Realist. 1/2 empty IS 1/2 full.

If a player refuses to sign then he goes back into the draft the next year and the team loses the slot money.
