The Pirates today agreed to terms with their first-round draft pick, Boston College catcher Tony Sanchez, on a signing bonus believed to be in the range of $2.5 million.

I still think they picked him because he was an easy sign, and pretty cheap.

Totally agree Collin.. he was an easy sign, which puts him in West Virginia, playing ball faster than the rest of the first round picks. It saved the Bucs money, giving the club an opportunity to sign all those kids the Pirates picked off in the 11-20 round range that other teams didn't want because of the price tag needed to take the kid out of his college commitment.

If the Bucs sign the majority of those kids, this will be a great draft talent wise by the Pirates.
