Pedro and Hosmer

It’s 25 minutes past the deadline, and still
no definitive word on the No. 2 and 3 picks in the draft…
crazy stuff, no?

No Crow

I’ve just learned the Washington Nationals
did not sign RHP Aaron Crow. They did, however, come to terms
with 15th rounder J.P. Ramirez. I’m told they are very happy
with their draft and the scouting staff is already dreaming
about having two top-10 picks in 2009.

Smoak terms

BA is reporting deal is for $3.5 million…confirmed by our own. T.R. Sullivan

Still trying to find out about Alvarez and Hosmer in particular…

Smoak signs…

More on Alonso

It is indeed a Major League deal and it’s for $4.5 million. Well, heard it’s $4 mil and “some perks,” but you get the idea…

Yonder Alonso signs

The Reds and Yonder Alonso have come to
terms. Details forthcoming — Baseball America reporting a
Major League deal is part of it … could this pave the way
for Smoak?
