2011 Mlb Draft Signings
August 16, 2011 by staff
2011 Mlb Draft Signings, The Pirates had a record night Monday morning Tuesday when they signed their top two drafts picks in June, the pitcher Gerrit Cole and outfielder Josh Bell, contracts worth a lot of money.
In the early hours, since the club has won high marks for the movements. Here’s a roundup of reaction. Pat Lackey where have you gone, Andy Van Slyke
The most important thing to remember is that during and 17 million tons of money to spend on a project and that while the Pirates system looks much better with Gerrit Cole and Josh Bell and Clay Dickerson Alex Holmes and he did it without them this is still only a first step.
In fact, writing checks is the easy part compared to maintaining the arms of pitchers healthy and nutritious as possible the high school baseball talent. You cannot do that without the players first, however, and last night, that’s what pirates did.

The Pirates selected two of the best players in the draft, to the surprise of many franchises in the MLB, who signed them. Congratulations to the Pittsburgh Pirates – The big winners of the 2011 draft.
Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review Reviews of Twitter in the early people who follow these things were just shy of the negative, especially the many who felt very strongly – and rightly – that Bell could not be influenced for their commitment to the University of Texas. Remember, Bell at one point sent a letter to the exploration office in the majors explicitly asked not to be written.
A cynic might say that Scott Boras was bluffing. Even there, however, you have to give credit to the Pirates as the only team to call it.
An outstanding job by the office and the scouts.

I’m not going to sit here and say that I knew was going to sign Josh Bell. However, from day one, I’ve never bought into the idea that a sign was impossible, or that was true intentions of going to school no matter the price. I said it before he was drafted. He said after he was drafted. He told me when he went to summer school. The sources said when they had 60% to sign. He told me when I was in the sources of 0-30% to sign. This is not based off any insider information. I was watching the situation and think logically, instead of taking the “I project” at face value.
