Happens more than you think...JD's brother Stephen on Arizona played in the indy league. I can't recall all the names now, but there certainly have been these situations in the past.

If the White Sox drafted him, Beckham can't possibly be any good. I hear the White Sox will never draft a solid, potential major league player ever again, so there's no point in even trying to sign him.

That's great news and a great first post, if true.

If that's true then it's two days earlier than I had predicted. I've heard entering today only 3 of the top 11 picks have been signed so despite what some may think, Gordon still not being signed (as of yesterday at least) is not a function of the Sox being cheap but a function of Beckham waiting to see what the market is (which would be stupid not to do).

Can you keep us updated if you hear any other developments or details on it? Plus so we know you aren't someone that just created a s/n to create buzz on here?

Default Is Beckham expected to sign?

Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere, but with the deadline for signing draft picks rapidly approaching, is there an issue with Gordon Beckham getting signed?

I'm hoping no news is good news.

Can I ask the typically overused "source" question?

Thanks for the post.

Not doubting anyone or anything here but I'll wait until the official announcement, while in the same breath saying it would've been a huge huge shock if he didn't sign.
