    No, the Marlins have spent the 2nd fewest in the draft. That's a fact. You're the one spinning it for reasons. And you keep only focusing on the 1st round where we sign for slot, while ignoring the rest of the draft. We rarely sign high upside guys in the later rounds, mostly focusing on college filler for our system.

    Spending more money doesn't automatically make you better, but having less money puts you in a worse position than having more money. And Beinfest's hands were likely tied in that regard in the draft.

    You don't seem to be getting it. It's not about paying more for the guys they select, but rather selecting guys who command more money.

    The price is set by the slot a player is drafted in, not by the attributes of the player himself. For the entire draft.

    But.....Whatever. I'm done.

    I think he said that earlier in the thread, though.

    Players are assigned to the slots based on their attributes and teams also have the ability to pay more or less than the amount of money recommended for any given slot.
