    Could be the best signing in the entire draft outside of the first round.
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Garrett got seven figures to sign? Maybe Stephenson doesn't sign then...

    The best way to improve your draft is to draft guys who fall for signability issues and pay them what they are worth (which is over slot).

    A blown knee waiting to happen. I would've given him 1.2 mil ( a little extra cash) but a guarantee he wouldn't be playing basketball. None of this waffling stuff
    Go Reds!

    $1M?!? Wowza. Is that the most the Reds have ever paid for a non 1st round guy? Or 2nd round guy?

    And better yet, is he worth that much??

    There's benefits for the Reds with him being a multi-sport athlete.

    LHP with a 96 MPH FB. Low low miles on that arm. It's a gamble, but one that could pay huge dividends...
