A's sign Stassi

Max Stassi signed for $1.5 mil today. Great job by Beane and Co. to get him signed up. Best player picked of the 2nd day of the draft. Maybe the best Catcher in the draft. He is in my opinion.

Michael Ohlmann, the O's 11th rounder, also signed for $995,000. More than I would have expected, but the O's needed a bat. They went very pitching heavy in their draft. I would have expected him to be a second day pick if he was drafted on potential alone. I think he will end up in the OF.

Levon Washington and Kenny Diekroger are on to plan B according to TB Rays. They have stated they are not going to sign them. Or is it just posturing?

Kentrail Davis also signed with the Brewers. I heard early on he was going to sign. Then apparently things got ugly between them, whatever that means, now he is a Brewer. I like him as a Supp. pick. He could have the bat to be a top 10-15 pick if he hits up to his potential.
