I think we will lock Meadows and McGuire up by the end of this week.

He could very well get that same number as Frazier. There is not a nickel’s worth of difference in the two of them, and Meadows with his LH bat and power potential works a lot better for the Pirates, IMO.

I think he was the best prospect coming out of HS in Mississippi, and he has learned how to be just an average ballplayer at LSU. He was hitting .188 earlier this year and has managed to run that up to .299, He’s a .980’s defensive player with great speed.

I suppose Jacoby Jones could command some of it since he could probably improve his stock by returning for his senior year and putting up good numbers. But I dunno.

Wonder why Taylor was willing to go so low? I can see him signing under slot but would have thought he would have wanted to be closer the million dollar amount. Especially since he had leverage of going to college.
