    St. Louis went ahead and drafted Matheny's son even though he asked them not to.

    And someone said you can offer up to $100k without it coming out of your slotted allotment, right?

    11-40 are equal as far as money. All on the same financial footing as per signing

    Remer generates good movement from a high slot on an 88-91 mph fastball that bumps 94, and he mixes in a pair of solid secondary offerings.
    Sounds like the type of guy who may surprise. Can't seem to find the plate with regularity, though. Someone to watch.

    Again, according to Perfect Game, Rankin throws 88 (but the last time they checked on him was 2010, so that may have changed). From their 2010 report:

    Report
    Daniel Rankin is a 2012 RHP/SS/3B with a 6'1'', 150 lb. frame from Katy, TX who attends Second Baptist. Slender young build, good pitchers body, high waist. Pitches with a Hi 3/4 arm slot, long arm action, lower effort, some armside run FB, extended release, 12/6 CB, lots of swings and misses on CB, solid pitchability. Hits with a closed stance, rotational swing, contact approach. Named to Top Prospect Team, very good student.

    " was captain of the baseball and bowling teams…was division two state bowling champion… "

    The Saunders pick must have been a favor to Brandon Phillips. Somebody to bowl with.

    The most they can give him is $100,000 anyway without it coming out of your 1-10 allotment.
