I don't see the Sox being cheap here. 4th and 8th round picks shouldn't go for much more than slot, unless the Sox think they have a stud and go over just to sign them. If we were unwilling to go extra with a 1st, sandwich or 2nd rounder, then I could understand the accusation.
BTW - the Yankees went way over (4-5 times) slot for 2 later-round picks this weekend. That sets a really bad precedent.
