    Hey laugh now, but the Canadian dollar is creeping awfully close to yours.

There's a ton of money available right there.
    Signability matters if the kid is willing to go to college or play for an independent league for awhile. If there is a real threat he will go to college , like Sowers, or play for an independent team, it matters.

    Major league team should be able to pay a player what he is worth on the open market. But if there is a serious risk of a no-sign situation, that's a problem.

    The good news is, Billings will be a step up in weather from Canada.

    Maybe Lotzkar can make Phil Valiquette finally feel at home with a countryman so he will finally start living up to his talent and stop with the crybaby homesick routine

    Wow, three picks and no warm-weather guys...guess the Reds don't buy into the conventional wisdom that guys who can play year-round have an edge.
