    Default Buccos sign 4th & 8th round picks.....

    •The Pirates announced that they have signed fourth round pick Colten Brewer and eighth round pick Jason Creasy. Now that they've signed the pair of high school right-handers, Pittsburgh has locked up 16 players from last month's draft.

    No disrespect meant, but I would venture to say that there are a lot more major league players who were drafted in the later rounds that have success than strictly relying on players drafted in the first or second rounds.

    Is there a site that I can see the list of who we have drafted and who we have signed?

    That depends on how you define success. There are a ton of solid contributors, but most of the (drafted) stars or even just well above average regulars were drafted in the top 3 rounds, particularly on the hitting side. It is kind of funny that probably the best hitter of the last decade was a 13th round pick and the best hitter this year was a 20th round pick, but those are both pretty unique cases. Oddly they're also both Dominican kids who moved to the US in their mid-late teens. You do see a few more starting pitchers slip through the cracks, but it's still not a ton. Good relievers come from all over the place though.

    The Pirates also signed 3rd rounder Alex Dickerson today. I liked him a lot coming out of the draft.

    Yeah me too.Excited to see him get signed.

    The only one that is going to be a question mark IMO is Josh Bell. Exactly how much is it going to take to sign him? there's always a dollar figure that will persuade a player away from college committments, it's just a matter of determining what it is through negotiations.

    I think the Pirates get Bell signed. Like last years drafting of Allie, I don't think the Pirates draft Bell without being prepared to buy him out of his commitment to Texas. The possible implementation of a hard slot just might be all the leverage the Buccos need to get it done.
