Burks signs with Boston despite the M's offering him $500k more. The whole thing is beautifully describe in Mariner Musings and Sports and Bremertonians.

The MBSBL draft continues through round 4. Mike and I picked up Richard Hidalgo and Luis Gonzalez to fill out our outfield. We both thought that drafting the highest OPS available was a better strategy than trying to fill out our infield with lesser players. We may have gotten some more VORP at 3rd base but couldn't pass up either of these two guys. I was sort of hoping that Berkman would slip down to us ( I love switch hitters with .412 OBP that can play 2 outfield positions) but that was not to be as TT took him 2 picks before us.

How many days until pitchers and catchers report?
