With the midnight deadline nearing to sign this year’s draft picks (non-college seniors), the Rays are now saying that they are unlikely to sign either of their top two picks, with second round pick Kenny Diekroeger deciding to attend Stanford and top pick LeVon Washington’s signing apparently “next to impossible.”

If Washington does go unsigned, the Rays will be awarded a compensation pick in next year’s draft comparable to this year’s first round selection.

    Why does ANY team ever draft a Scott Boras player? Look at the contract the kid from San Diego State was offered by the Senators. Does he have talent, yes. Does he deserve to be set for life without earning it? No! I believe in a free market, but this is really starting to push the boundries of my beliefs.
