If I draft someone represented by Boras, do I even bother negotiating before deadline day? Dustin Ackley, also a Boras client, signed at the deadline as well (twitter.com), $9.5M in a major-league deal.
Saw Ankiel pitch once in Springfield before he made the Majors. Still feel terrible when I think of what happened to the poor kid. At least he's still trying. Oh and it's not baseball but I played high school football against Grant Wistrom.
