Okay, so doing the math myself (because apparently I need to), the Cubs have $2,357,355 to spend including the 5% overage.

Hatch - unsigned (slot $573,900)
Miller $500,000
Clark $450,000
Hockin $241,000
Cruz $75,000
Ridings $120,000
Robinson $30,000
Mekkes $275,000

That totals $1,691,000 already spent + Hatch's slot money = $2,264,900.

So the Cubs still $92,455 above slot to spend meaning they can go as high as $666,355 for Hatch or spread that around between Hatch, his buddy Trey Cobb and Parker Dunshee (both of whom are juniors).

12th round pick, and OSU teammate of Hatch, Trey Cobb said in a twitter post that he is "also" returning for his senior year. Don't know what the "also" means. Hopefully, it's not referring to Hatch.

His tweet didn't say "also" in reference to another Cowboy:

Ah, good. The page I accessed the top of that tweet was cut off, so it read "baseball it is also my dream..." Couldn't tell, thanks!

Excellent. I don't really have any expectations for this class, but I'm at least hopeful about a few of these guys.

According to Yags, we're getting 23rd round SS Delvin Zinn. He was a top 250 guy by BA and was drafted by us last year in the 28th. Wasn't thinking we'd get him, with Clark, Miller, and Mekkes getting as much as they did.

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.

Outstanding! I didn't think we'd have a chance at him.

Back a dump truck full of steaks to this kid's house. Love adding another exciting athlete, though.

Bold/[expletive] prediction: Zinn gets comped to Gregorious within the next 3 years. Book it!

Rucker got 180K. Zinn and Sweeney got 100k. The deadline is later today, but we're out of overage(have 12K left or so). My guess is we're done, unless Biasi signed and it fell under the radar somehow.
