Might they send them to extended training in Sarasota, let them get back into competitive shape, and evaluate them for a fall leaque?
    i would shut down leak for the year (he's pitched more than enough innings) but i would let boxberger go to dayton now.

    I would give them each 2-3 starts just to get them acclimated to Pro baseball, kind of like the 9 game stretch they gave Yonder last year

    I'd say if they signed their first 15 picks that's not bad.

    Any rumblings about Strausburg? I'm sure there's much going on today, and I think the last rumor I heard was that they were so far apart, they didn't expect a deal, but things happen as deadlines end. Wonder what his demands for next season would be, wonder if the Reds would be willing to pony up if they had the chance to draft him.

    still 14 unsigned first round picks. Not signing is certainly high risk, especially for a pitcher.

    I will be very surprised if not shocked if Strausberg isn't a Washington National by tomorrow morning. Scott Boras will take this to the deadline and get every last cent out of the Nationals but in the end he will sign. I think it's all a ploy to try to get the Nats to panic.

    Since he's a boras signing, he may not sign until after midnight

    If they don't sign Strasburg I wonder who they'll pick 1st next year? Strasburg or Harper?

    I thought teams who didn't sign their 1st round picks couldn't pick them again in the next draft?

    You are correct. They are not allowed to pick the player again without his permission.
