I agree, but I think Porcello was the Official "Steal of the Draft." He was probably Top 3-5 in Talent and fell to 27 to a team with an already solid rotation.



It could have been possible for Detroit to get both Porcello and Harvey, but I'm pretty sure there would have been some major retribution from the commish's office if they had. Detroit has been one of the worst abusers of the draft's slot/bonus structure the past few yrs and drafting Harvey too would have made a lot of people upset at them.

They could have gotten Harvey, but they aren't the Yankees. They don't have bottomless pockets to spend money on what they wish. Sure, they had some left over cash from being AL Champs last year, but they couldn't have afforded Harvey as well.
Is pushing for President Obama to pass a law requiring all citizens to be Chicago White Sox fans and make October 1st "White Sox Day" where we all dress as our favorite player. It maybe socialist, but I don't care.

Most people won't sign for a while. The steal of the draft was easily Matthew Harvey. He should have been in the top 20, not 118.

I don't know of any master list, but a great majority of the teams have been putting out lists already of their signings.
Overall I would say probably 100 plus players have signed already. It may be more.

Hardball Times analyzes the Top 10 Picks...
1. LHP David Price, Devil Rays

Consensus No. 1 pick. Repeats his motion very well. Excellent arm action: shortish and elbowy. I prefer a quick tempo, and while Price isn't slow to the plate, he could do a better job of building up more momentum into footplant. I like that he starts drifting just a bit before getting to the top of his knee, which helps carry his body forward. Take a look at this clip:
