I can see and partially agree with the point you are making. But to know for sure what has been going on we would have to know if the Marlins talked to those other players, what positions they played, and if the Marlins were looking for those positions. Also if those players had the same agent or if their agents were talking with each other comparing notes. Too many what if's to just come out and state as fact they refuse to give large signing bonuses. Wouldn't surprise if it's true, just no real evidence to support stating it as fact and trying to back up that statement. Seems to me our #1 draft pick usually comes down to the wire before actually signing. Not sure if that's a fact or not, just seems like it to me.
