              That's it for today. No current or future Shockers taken through 10 rounds.

                At what point does the money drop off to the point that it becomes more of a tough decision to go or stay.

                  Each team has different amounts of money to spend on the draft (There are caps to spend on the expensive Free Agents and teams who sign them have penalties that they pay to the team teams who lost the FA can spend more on their total draft). There are money slots for each pick, but if a team spends under their slot on Rd. 1, they have more to spend on another Rd. So the answer to your question is that it is unclear.

                  There are other rules too and I don’t really understand all of them. Here is a brief MLB explanation on draft spending.

                    Looking at the article Shockm posted, it appears that the "slot money" for 5th round is approximately $320-420,000. In the 10th round it drops to $140-150,000. I believe that is what a team can spend, but they may spend more or less, with more possibly having penalties. After today, if a player feels he is worth a lot more than a $150,000 signing bonus, he'll probably wait until next year. Others may just take whatever they can get and run to pro ball.

                      I was listening to a description of the Royals 1st Rd. Choice (7th Choice overall). They chose a player who was ranked 27th or so. It was discussed that they most likely had communicated with him prior to draft, agreeing to his amount which was much lower than if they drafted Rocker from Vandy who was a Top ranked choice.

                      The savings they made for picking a lower ranked player could be realized by overpaying a lower Round choice (slot wise). Sometimes, high school players drop by insisting in their pre-draft interviews that they plan to go to a top ranked baseball University program instead of turning pro and are therefore unsignable. The Royals can then offer that lower Round player, higher slotted money.

                              That’s a great name for a pitcher or Taco Bell cook.
