Exactly. Looking at our budget, we actually have our first 32 picks signed with $122,800 left to spend in terms of bonus money. Is Rodriguez going to sign for that little? Probably not. I'm sure that the Sox will contact him eventually, but at this point, it's in his best interest to go to college.
