I am also disappointed by the lack of HS signings. I really liked the SOX approach in this draft with all the high schools draftees in the late rounds. But it appears they'll sign just a couple of them. I realize that some of these may be hard signs, but still...only 2 or 3? Pretty disappointing.
I still have my fingers crossed that they might sign Dakota Freese. I'm not going to hold my breath though.

It will be interesting to see the spread on draft spending. Many teams are splurging because of the threat of hard slotting next year. Toronto is going nuts. Some expect them to be end up totaling near $15 million. Conversely, without doing any math I would expect the White Sox to end in the $3.5 to $5 million range somewhere near the bottom.
