Clint Scoles

I grew up on the mean gravel roads of Iowa where I started my love for baseball from the age of 2. George Brett and the voice of Denny Matthews deepened my love even more for the Royals as my father and I spent summers listening to the team on our deck or in the car on our way to or from my little league and high school games. Sports was always the common bond that my father and I enjoyed and the Royals were in the center of that. I currently live in La Vista with my wife, two sons, two dogs and a pair of gross cats where we are grinding through until we can move somewhere warm when we retire. I own Casino Cab Company and Bluffs Affordable Auto Repair in Council Bluffs trying to build my 1% empire. If you are in the area you can find me at Omaha Storm Chasers games on most nights or just follow me on twitter @ClintScoles.

    Hi Guys,

    Haven’t heard KC linked with any of the top int. players this spring.

    I would expect lots of player movement in this market after the June draft and before the July deadline kicks in.

    Seems like signing bonuses will drop significantly. I’ll be interested to see which teams set the market standard for payouts. Would love to see KC start to ask from international market money when they make a little deal for PTBNL or cash considerations. Better to have 2 lottery ticket types in the DR than $50,000 in cash for a 4A guy when they change organizations.

    Yep anything they find valuable. If you aren’t going to use it why hang onto it. Could get messy if MLB requires teams to have that money at the time of signing. Example Sign Gustavo for 3.5M on July 2nd, add another couple players on July 2nd for 1m each and then in December after the DPL All Star game add another player for 200K. That exceeds the total cap by 2.8m. If MLB required the money to be there on July 2nd they’d have to pull a trade prior to the July 2nd deals, if they didn’t then teams could include the money in trades made around the trading deadline and during the offseason. That second scenario would be much more ideal for teams and increase leverage by the team trading away the money I would think.
