Default Unsigned 1st Rounders?

http://www.baseballamerica.com/draft...xrnd.php?rnd=1

BA's DB says there are 3 - Crow (WAS), Fields (SEA) and Gerrit Cole (NYY). Is this true? Or just not updated? I'd be shocked to see Sea and NYY not pay the price. If they won't - who will? I'm not surprised the Nats messed it up... Cole is a HS kid - so at least that's understandable...

Crow and Cole definitely didn't sign. SEA has up until next year's draft to get a deal done with Fields because he's done with college and doesn't have the option of going back to school.

You would think as bad of a team Seattle is, they would want to get as much talent as they can, into their system ASAP!

A college relief pitcher will turn things around!

Cole committed to college and told the Yankees he had no intention of signing.

I'm definitely not going to complain if other teams don't sign their top drafted talent.

All those teams will get another first round pick next season so it's not like it's a complete wasted pick.
