Who is coming with me
How long is it going to take for the Rangers to sign Justin Smoak?-- Was the question asked by Rangers fan Adam Y., Forney, Texas
The deadline for drafted players to sign a big league contracts is Aug. 15. Rangers fans as well as Gamecock fans want to know what he is going to do. Granted the Rangers are not going to let their 1st round pick slip away. Right now the Rangers are throwing out low number because by default they are suppose to sign a player based on slot money. I think Justin will probably sign sometime next week once a team decides to defy the Commissioner’s office and pay a little more for a player, the chips will start to fall. On the other hand, James Darnell has not signed with the Padres, and I feel we have a good chance of seeing him return to South Carolina.
