Ring, White Sox agree to terms
By Jimmy Greenfield / MLB.com


CHICAGO -- The White Sox announced Saturday they have agreed to terms with first-round draft pick Royce Ring, a left-handed closer from San Diego State, and expect to introduce him at a news conference Sunday at Comiskey Park.
The deal, contingent on Ring passing a physical, is reportedly worth $1.6 million.


1.6 million! For a college relief pitcher who will probably spend next year in A/AA!? KW and JR complain about money, but they can spend 1.6 million on a college closer? How about using that to pick up a decent starting pitcher via free agency or something?

I would guess he'll report to AA soon.

Nah, we can't afford any free agents, you know that Neal. :D:

Ahh, that's true... stupid me. I think I'm going to go play my Sox team on All Star baseball 2003 now so I can see some decent transactions made (and watch Crede play).
