Incidentally, on the beasticon...

So, I went back today to find out what I posted about Christopher Davis when he was drafted a couple of years ago.  Here it is...my thoughts are pretty useless, there...

However...I had forgotten another aspect of this story.  Namely, that Davis was drafted in 2005 by Anaheim as a draft-and-follow, and supposedly (according to one of our posters) turned down a $450,000 offer the week before the 2006 draft, opting to re-enter the draft instead.  He got $172,500 to sign with the Rangers. 

And of course, Justin Smoak was an Oakland A draftee in 2005 who went to college over a $50,000 difference in signing bonus...
