Mike: With the Mesas and Sandy Gaston signed, who is the top IFA left (if any)?

Kiley McDaniel: Have referenced this in a few places, but there’s basically no consensus $500K+ prospects left right now. Asia is light, there may be some hideout guys in Mexico but that is contingent on MLB opening the country pretty quickly (which is unlikely).

Kiley McDaniel: 17-19 year old latin prospects always develop late and pop up in the middle six figures, some new Cubans may pop up, etc. but there isn’t a guy right now and there isn’t even a Cuban name that’s widely known that teams are waiting on–that market is pretty barren, which is why most of the new ones you hear about are 16 years old with no track record. That age group is where the Cuban talent hasn’t been picked over yet.

Can’t remember if we ever figured this one out...According to a BA article the Cubs lost Florencio Serrano because Tiajuana planned to give him 50% of the $1.2 million rather than 25%. The Cubs were not penalized because they were unaware of the % his current club would pay Serrano.

The Cubs got 300k added to their pool this season, because of nullifying the deal.

Additional rule: you have to have one or the other.The only exception is you have an amazing board name. davell, I'm looking at you; put up a [expletive] avatar or something if your name only sounds like somebody tried say Dave as they lapsed into a coma.

Cubs probably won't spend on him since they are locked in to 5 starting pitchers financially.
