Over on FutureSox, they were postulating that the SOX draft strategery was to pick college players early, and high school players late in the draft. Their thought was that there is a big difference between a top ten round college player in the 1st 10 rounds and a college player in the last 10 rounds; For high school players, often there is scant difference between players drafted early and late.

I'm not suggesting this is a good plan or the right way to go, but it was nonetheless an interesting/optimistic take.

What happened to some of the posts that were in this thread? Were they deleted? Crawdad suggested renaming this thread to include a "2011" in the title, and I responded, but now said posts are gone. Weird.

Snodgress and Vance have signed.

I'm still trying to decide if Snodgress is the best name or the worst name.

Also kind of worth noting, the White Sox were going to select prep SS Brandon Martin with their supplemental pick, but the Rays beat them to it at number 38.

That's really too bad. I was hoping Krist would sign. I liked what I saw from him in the College WS.

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.

You might get your wish. The Sox seem hopeful that they will ink 29th rounder JC OF Dustin Hayes. I don't have time to research him at this point, but any additional signings are welcome.

Sounds like Gardeck will sign, and he has the potential to be a great value as an 8th round pick.

Just hopefully he isn't sitting there expecting money for where he thought he would be picked. It sounds like he is real excited to be with us though. A hometown guy, he may just want to get a deal done and get started.

We can always use good pen help, and it looks like we got some in this draft. If Gardeck works hard and progresses in his pitching career, he could be a good reliever.
