    Stubbs signs for $2 milion

    per Marc's blog...

    Reds first-round pick Drew Stubbs signed earlier today for $2 million. He'll report to Billings this weekend for a couple of days of camp before the Mustangs' season begins Tuesday. "Obviously, he wants to play and we want to get him out there, so that's good stuff," said Reds senior director of scouting Chris Buckley. "He's a good kid, good family, we're happy to have him."

    Nice work Wayne. Hopefully the kid pans out.

    Actually Krono - that's a common misconception

    Stubbs played on Team USA, which uses wood bats, and hit .304 last summer

    I know this will not change, but I absolutely HATE these huge signing bonuses for a player who's never even stepped a foot on a minor league ball field, much less a big league park.

    I just hate it. $2 million, for what? Absolutely nothing at this point; it's a gift for playing well in HS or college... a gift.

    This must be our day to agree, TB. I loathe this crap. Paying $2 million to a 20 year old or an 18 year old for that matter is basically like flushing millions upon millions down the john.

    There's got to be a better way.

    Well we could ask RCast to draft a guy who doesn't want $2 million as a signing bonus. I guess if pro-baseball wasn't paying these guys of bonuses you'd have many more atheletes going to Gridiron and Basketball.

    I'm not sure what the case is nowadays, but I do remember reading somewhere that these bonuses are not just a check to cash immediately.

    The payments are phased out over several years, and contingent on obtaining certain goals. I remember somewhere that if a player didn't make it the bigs he wouldn't collect the full bonus.

    Somebody help with this...there's always someone who knows more about these details.
