I realize what is going on with Appel, and doubt that he will sign this year. Should the Pirates just allow Appel to decline the $2.9 mil for slot, and put all of their efforts into signing Buehler? They have $600K to play with and that could sign 4, 8, and 14, and take the 9th pick in 2013(for not being able to sign Appel).
