    Friggin Yankees

    1) Globalize the draft
    2) Institute a cap

    I have no idea what that says... but I bet they signed about 10 million dollars worth of international players right?

    I can't read the article either but I'll add my 2 cents...

    I hate the Yankees

    It will be so great if Boston can win the division and Tigers/White Sox win the wild card. SO great

    Can't hardly blame the Yankees; it's the system that isn't right. Globalizing the draft would help.
    2006 Redszone Prospect Draft - Johnny Cueto
    2007 Redszone Prospect Draft - Pedro Viola, Alexis Oliveras
    2007 Redszone Mock Draft - 1st (27) Michael Burgess, Supp. (60) Wes Roemer, 2nd (92) Barry Enright, 3rd (122) Jonathan Bachanov
    2009 Redszone Mock Draft - 1st (9) Shelby Miller, 2nd (58) Marc Krauss, 3rd (89) Daniel Fields

    Whoops...my bad. They signed the "consensus top prospect, Venezuelan catcher Jesus Montero, for $2 million" and are starting to wipe their posteriors with the slotting system.

    Ian Kennedy: Somewhere btw $2.25 and 2.6 million. Expected slot was $1.45 million.
    Betances: Broke the record also held by NYY (2005 - Austin Jackson) for an 8th rounder at $1 million.

    Hey Bud, the system still isn't fixed.

    It kills me how some teams can do that. Drew Stubbs, our first round pick was selected by the Astros in the 3rd round and offered him a million bucks and Bud stepped in and said no, you have to offer him close to slot money. He went to college and we got him instead. The Yankees can offer a million bucks to Betances though? He was a projected 2nd round type guy, but signability issues dropped hm to the 8th, but its ridiculous.

    The article made it sound like it was done. Not offered...done. Such a joke.

    Its done, Betances is signed. Its just a joke that Bud picks and chooses where he steps in. Wish he wouldnt have stepped in with Stubbs, then we couldnt have drafted him.
