A Little Spending Primer

It might be useful to put the Pirates' 2012 draft spending in some perspective, as it's hard to keep track of what other teams have spent in the past. Here's a look at what teams spending in the 8th, 45th, 69th, and 98th slots spent last year. (Right now, that's where the Pirates are scheduled to pick.) The bottom line is that under the CBA the Pirates could make a competitive offer to a draftee and still be able to offer players chosen in rounds 4 through 10 an average of $324, 883. What you can't do in this environment is pull a Josh Bell or go overslot often.

The fact that the 2012 compensation system is ridiculous, should get fixed for 2013.
