Transaction Analysis: Off-Brand Bargains

Two teams commit less cash and fewer years by avoiding bigger names, as the Reds ink Ryan Madson and the Rays sign Luke Scott.

Has super-agent Scott Boras earned his reputation for getting the most cash and the longest contracts for his clients?

Maneuverings and shenanigans as the first-round draftees go dunking for dollars.

While the draft is over, that doesn't mean that anyone can stop talking about it. In fact, if you like your baseball peppered with a bit of espionage and intrigue, things are really only starting to heat up, as it's signing season. Here's a look at the status of each first-round pick, as we check for any bumps in the road on the way to adding these players to the professional ranks before the August 17th deadline.

There is truly nothing new under the sun, and to understand a thing you must first know its history.

While the Pedro Alvarez story is still sending shockwaves through the industry, many people are talking about this as if it's a new scenario, but we're hardly in uncharted territory. From Tim Belcher's holdout in 1983, to the incredible inflation created by the representation of top talents Ben McDonald, Todd Van Poppel, and Brien Taylor from 1989-91, the structure of the modern draft has Scott Boras' fingerprints all over it. Even filing a grievance against baseball is nothing new, as Boras has commonly used it as a tool to gain leverage (and therefore money) for his clients. Here's a quick overview of five of Boras' biggest draft moments that actually resulted in Major League Baseball's involvement.

Future Shock: And in This Corner...

Kevin Goldstein

Developments in the battle royale between just about everyone in the baseball industry.

It really was the statement heard 'round the world, as from the time of its release until the end of the day, my phone has been burning in non-stop discussions with teams, agents, players, and other members of the media all looking to talk about the Pedro Alvarez situation. The statement issued by the Pirates is very strong in tone, and tells us quite a bit in only 575 words. We all know that Pittsburgh team president Frank Coonelly has a close relationship with the commissioner's office, and the document almost sounds as if it came straight from New York. Let's take a word by word look at it, and talk about what is actually known, what is merely rumored, and what may eventually happen.

Future Shock: Signing Status for the 2008 First-Rounders

An update of the wheelings and dealings of this year's top 30 picks.

Last year's draft was the first with the newly-implemented August 15th signing deadline, and it also introduced a new version of the game "chicken," as numerous players waited until the final 24 hours to finalize their deals. The sad truth for the teams in this situation is that those players who waited tended to get the most money, so as we enter the final week of this year's signing window, 11 of the 30 first-round selections remain unsigned. Here's a look at each of the first-round picks, discussing either their performance so far, or the status of their negotiations.

Future Shock: First Round Update

Kevin has all the information on the first-rounders who signed, and those who haven't yet.

Sunday's piece on the draft generated a whirlwind of email responses, many of them looking for specific information about a specific pick. Here's a broader look at where the first-round selections are at, both signed and unsigned. Again, as I wrote on Sunday, despite the 13 first-round picks who remain unsigned, and despite the deadline looming at just over a week away, most within the industry feel that all 30 picks will be professionals when we wake up on August 16.

In the absence of no-brainer picks at the top of the draft, teams are scouting their potential choices with extra care.

Retired players get their say, even when it makes little to no sense. Plus, everything you wanted to know about Scott Boras but were afraid to ask.
