If this is posted elsewhere I apologize. Interesting list:

Matusz's total, I believe, assuming he gets to the ML soon and stays there is in the $6M range, which seems to be the new standard for the top few.

EDIT: The hits keep coming for Seattle. What a disaster of a year.

Seattle can sign Fields up until the end of May 2009. The Aug 15th deadline only pertains to underclassmen, where as Fields was a senior.

The scary thing is that the Red Sox spend 10 million $ on this years draft! Only with extreme luck there is a chance for the O's to overtake them in the next years.

That's interesting. I wonder if some of the draft experts around here would comment on the question: Did the Orioles, as in past years, pass on quality players because of sign-ability issues (particularly $$$) that the Sox or others took? I was under the impression that Jordan had a free hand and was not restricted by lack of money. Was that not the case?

Jordan's only been here a few years. And it does, at least to me, definitely seem like he's been given a much bigger budget to work with under MacPhail than he had under Flanny/Beattie.
