    Really excited for Yadier Alvarez and Starling Heredia. Also based on that podcast dodgers99 posted a lot of domestic scouts said Lucius Fox might have been overhyped as a he was 4th-5th round prospect in America, one reason why he went back to the Bahamas.

    When it dies down a little bit, merge with the prospect thread or else BLF will punch a child but here's more info on the guys we signed. Click the link below. check out Alvarez, Heredia and Brito for more info.

    http://www.fangraphs.com/scoutboard.aspx?draft=2015int&type=0&pos=all

    Here's a blurb on Alvarez from fangraphs

    "The Alvarez video is from when I scouted his second appearance in front of scouts back in February, also the last open showcase for Dodgers IF Hector Olivera before he got $62.5 million. Alvarez wasn’t a big name in Cuba and never played in their top pro league. I heard rumors after his first appearance for scouts two weeks prior to my look that he hit 98 mph, but you take that type of buzz with a grain of salt in the international market. He hit 98 mph again in the outing I went to on one scout’s gun, hit 97 mph multiple times on every gun, sitting at 93-96 mph over his two innings. As you can see in the video (from his second inning when I moved down to get a closer look) the slider is plus and the changeup is surprisingly good, flashing 55, and Alvarez used it multiple times in two strike counts and against right-handed hitters. While the command isn’t all the way there yet, he’s only 18 with new velocity that he’s still adjusting to, while the delivery, arm, frame and athleticism are all solid to very good with some flashes of feel to pitch already.

    He projects as a starter, but the risk here is due to the uncertainty. Alvarez has been throwing this hard for less than a year, scouts haven't seen him go deep into games or face high end minor league hitters."

    Dodgers missed out on 80 grade name Lucias Fox to the Giants, but got their main targets.

    This is the last time they'll be able to splurge on talent like this for 2 years. The next 2 years they'll only be able to sign guys for 300 K or less.

    Now some tweets.

    @JeffPassan: As is the case with all J2 kids, until the ink is dry, the agreements in place are merely of the handshake variety. Dodgers plan to go huge.

    @JeffPassan: Yadier Alvarez's $16M deal actually costs Dodgers $32M. With 2x penalty for going over bonus pool, @kileymcd has them ~$65M on six guys.

    @truebluela: Per @BenBadler, Dodgers' deal with 16-year-old Dominican OF Christopher Arias is $500k http://t.co/oslLF0Jva3


    And TrueBlueLA does a great job of summing things up! happy July 2 :)

    Splurge now before the rules change. Manfred is hard up for a Int Draft.

    Waiting for that moment when the smoke clears and we find out the guy we signed for nothing (aka Julio Urias and Rubby De La Rosa) is actually a top talent.
