Key names still unsigned:
obviously, second and third rounders, Jeremy Reed and Josh Rupe...

5th rounder: B.J. LaMura, rhp
6th rounder: Chris Getz, ss
12th rounder: Jason Ruhlman, lhp
14th rounder: Christian Madson, RHP

Good to see Todd Deininger RHP sign after the Cubs couldn't get him on the dotted line last year.

I was glad to see that they got Shane Scoville to sign also,from what I hear it was surprising he was not picked in the first 5 rounds.

I know this is an old rant, and not really applicable here, but I'm going forth with it anyway. I'm still waiting for us to sign a high drafted catching prospect, between Zeringue and Ritchie the last few years, it was ridiculous. Maybe we'll get something out of Olivo, I don't know enough about him to make that call, but it still irks me that we let all that talent get away after drafting them.

Olivio is one of seven Birmingham Barons to make the western division's AA All Star team.

question--whatever happens to all the draft picks that never sign? do they eventually sign somewhere else, or do they resign themselves to a normal life? if the latter--why the hell don't they at least sign for some $$$, and then bail after a few years?

Most of them go back to school and re-enter the draft,or play independant league ball and re-enter the draft.

Matt Harrington was drafted for the third time this year.

Many players in the 1st through 5th rounds wait to see what kind of money the other draftees around them got before putting numbers out there...for most players, rounds 2-10 are a decreasing pay scal, so where that scale lies varies slightly from one year to the next.

Also, players participating in the CWS are not able to sign until they are eliminated.

btw reed is a defensive cf........... how does his stats look as a hitter?

Cubs drafted Deininger in 1999, he's had a rather average college career, most likely he'll become a reliever.

Reed hit .339 in 60 games at LBSU with a damn metal bat. He was only the 4th best hitter on his team. He had a .439 OBP and a .512 slg%. He had 29 BB, 23 K's, and 12 HBP. He was 19-25 in SB's and had a .988 Fld% (2 errors) and 5 assists.

Thanks Vic, forgot when the Cubs drafted him, just that they couldn't sign him...
