We know that he's gone. We also know that he's an ******* that deserves all of the abuse thrown his way. If you expect Pirate fans to not ridicule this guy for his entire career, you are sadly mistaken.

I wish they didn't have the all star break, haha. Hitting is such a rhythm thing. And we were on a roll. 4 days, and you are starting all over, trying to get into the groove. Unless you are Andrew McCutchen.

He is likely going to college instead and went to the press pretty pissed off over the $8000 snub.
Slot for the pick, 2.9M, disappears since the pick was unsigned. The money they saved on signing in their mid round picks was spent toward other later round picks and wasn't pocketed. It looks like they went 92k under which isn't surprising; having both Appel and Thomas not signing made their bonus pool change quite a bit. If Ross wants to renege, go ahead. It will be a loss, but I think it will be have a worse affect on the kid since teams wouldn't be able to trust him next time around.
