I got the text yesterday that he signed, and it's good news. If all goes well, he will get called up in late 2010. He lost a lot of this year already, so I figure he'll need two good calendar years to get up here.

With all the other top picks like Crow, Alonso, and Alvarez appearing to want 6+ million and MLB contracts, I'm amazed we got Beckham for 2.5 million. In my eyes, he's not very far from, if at all, from any of those guys talent-wise.

Kudos to the Sox and to Beckham.

It doesn't look like Crow is going to sign, he just signed with an independent team.

Right, because he WANTED 5-8 million dollar MLB contract. I wouldn't be mad at Gordon if he wanted a deal somewhat similar to those numbers, but he was really humble and agreed to a deal that is not over slot (if it is, it can't be by much).

Only about $400K over estimated slot money...

Not in the starting lineup. Apparently they want him to watch Oney Guillen play baseball tonight.

Ozzie even makes Kanny's lineups.

Glad he signed, was thinking he could go down to the wire, but I am happy we didn't have to wait this out.

Watching Baseball Tonight, there were 6 out of the top-11 picks that were unsigned. Lucky for us, Beckham was not one of them.
