Default The last 2 drafts

We have drafted the last 2 years Dave Holmberg, Mark Heidenreich, and this year Matthew Grimes out of H.S. We need to keep on drafting more H.S arms with potential. Chris Sale was Junior College pitcher and is 21 years old. Williams and Laumann need to use this strategy more often in future drafts. We haven't spent any money the last 2-3 years years in the International signings, other than Juan Silverio and that hasn't worked out. We need to put an extra $3-5 million on the draft and international signings. If that means we have to take $5 million off the regular roster, I'm all for it. Look what an extra $5 million is doing for the farm clubs of Tampay Bay, Oakland,Pittsburgh, Kansas City, and Boston. They have some of the best farm systems because of it and they will save money in the long run by not going after free agents or making trades with high salaries.
