They can go 0-5% over the allotted amount and only have a tax penalty. If they go over 5%, then they will lose next year's 1st round pick. They will not do this.

my bad.   I was going by rouge memory.  oopsie.

Watson will be signed.  Guaranteed.  

Perdue and Morissette probably go for under slot, they will probably gain a few bucks especially with Morissette.

IDK, with Mack being just a HS grad he has options.  Knowing that, like Watson he could be the potential pick that puts them over the budget.    I’m no expert, but as @FishFan95 said, we still have that 5% at the risk of losing a first rounder next year.  However, I don’t think that’s an option.  I would rather lose Mack’s (2.4M) if he wants a premium based on his HS leverage.  Sign Watson and get a compensation pick for Mack next year as well??   Hopefully, Watson doesn’t flip flop on his 5M asking price either.

I think it’s imperative that they sign Watson with how the FO has done us dirty this year.

They need both cause sorry catching depth is pathetic in this organization and overall in baseball..I believe they can sign them both and honestly I could careless bout other picks as long as Mac and Watson are signed

If you can get Mack at somewhere between slot value and 5% over it actually would be better than not signing him in terms of getting Watson. Failing to sign him would drop the total that they can spend without losing a 1st rounder by $120 K more than his value.

Can someone remind me what happens when they can’t sign Watson? Another pick next year?

the team receives a compensatory pick in the following draft of the original pick spot plus one
