I found this to be modestly interesting .........


Tonight's starting pitcher against the Orioles (James Paxton) was drafted by the Blue Jays in the 1st Round after pitching for the University of Kentucky for 2 years. He was offered a $1 Million signing bonus ........ but he chose not to sign, and instead returned for his junior season at Kentucky.

One year later, he dropped a bit in the draft (the 4th round), but he didn't lose much money in the process ........ after much squabbling, the Mariners gave him a $942,000 signing bonus, which was almost as much as the $1 Million that the Blue Jays had offered him one year earlier.

Means appears very business-like out there so far, ala Greg Maddux.

He's working quickly, he's not hesitating, and he appears like he expects to get all of the batters out.
