• Found this in a post by MLBTraderumors.com's Ben Nicholson-Smith, entitled, "Draft Spending Roundup: Nats Set Record", and thougth it might make for a quick pre-game read:

• BaseballAmerica.com: Blog: Baseball America Draft Blog " Blog Archive " Nats Set New Spending Record - Jim Callis

"We don’t have all the signing information for all 50 rounds yet, but we have enough to know that the Nationals have spent more money on bonuses than any team ever has in a single draft."
