Doh!

Not a Simpsons post, but that is how I feel. I found the article about Brett Zawacki in an Illinois newspaper that recently (as in today) took down the link. Since I don't want to subscribe to their online service to read it, I will summarize it.

Basically, he is signed to Arizona State and hasn't heard from the Cardinals much. St. Louis hasn't made an offer, and it is starting to sound like a broken record. Whether or not the big club is in the playoff hunt, Zawacki and Kozma could very well go off to playing ball at big-time college programs.

Kyle Russell, Tyler Henley, and Michael Stutes fall into a totally different category, but I'm worried more about the two HS players. Russell will sign for enough money, and Stutes is coming off of two straight National Titles. Henley is the wild card in my opinion, but the Cards should get him signed before the Aug. 15 deadline.

Not sure if St. Louis has ever failed to sign their first-round pick, and I don't see it happening this year. That leaves the Illinois hurler who is currently playing for a traveling All-Star team. The article didn't say which way he was leaning, and I'm really hoping to be making a bigger deal out of this than it really is.

Show the kids some money and get the deals done. Or this year's draft will really be one of a kind for all the wrong reasons.
