From the White Sox transaction page:

Seriously? They've signed just about everyone they've drafted.

Would've been nice to at least make an attempt to contact him if he is as talented as I've heard.

I also always take the words of teenagers on Twitter as verbatim

They've signed 30 of the first 32 kids they've drafted. Instead of bringing up the outlier, why not be happy that they've spent almost all of their allotted money and brought in a large group of draftees?

Because I have little faith in the White Sox scouting department. I hope that his tweet is false, though I'm not sure what the point of lying about it would be.

Whatever the case may be, it doesn't really matter, the Sox took a flyer on Rodriguez in the late rounds but everyone knew he was going to be a tough, tough sign, so the team has wisely used it's time, money, and energy on inking the majority of the other players selected in what overall looks to be a pretty solid draft.

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.

Yeah, because recruits always tell the truth. The question here is if he is really that talented, why did everyone else pass on him so many times? Sometimes, the player (or the people around him) makes life difficult for himself. I don't know in this case, but the fact that he is one of only two of the top 32 draftees the Sox have yet to sign this year suggests to me that there are issues at play other than Sox management. After all, signing draftees hasn't been the Sox problem. Scouting and developing them has been.

Actually he is the only of the first 32. Danny Hayes isn't listed on the White Sox website as signed, but he has and will be starting off in Great Falls.

Guess they're making room for some of the new guys. I've got hopes for those guys.
