Weaver was the 17th round pick. As far as I know, he's not signed.

17th here - I'll trust he isn't yet signed.


Btrain - he's a HS kid from East Lyden who has wonderful stuff. We will need to pay him quite a bit above slot to get him to forgo a scholarship at a JC.

Local kid - hope he does well. He was the first Chicago HS kid drafted. He has tremendous talent.

Is there any shot we sign Long? I can't see him not going to FSU.

Odorizzi is from Highland, IL - 280 miles from Chicago and 35 miles from STL. I don't see anyone from the Chicago area HS...but I may be wrong.

Hey, the signing wasn't a given. Remember, the Sox never could agree to terms with Casey Schueler.

Interesting that the 43rd pick signs and gets sent to A-ball. Any info on this guy?
