(Best event/news of the week) Brewers Draft Picks Get Paid: I must admit I don’t follow the MLB draft closely.  It seems like high draft picks are hit or miss, while more than a few late picks end up having productive big league careers.  But I understand it’s important for teams to sign those top prospects that will hopefully be contributors one day.  And I can’t help but feel delighted for any high school kid who signs a $1.8 million+ contract after graduation – it makes me proud to be an American. Just a couple of days after the draft, two of the Brewers’ three Day 1 picks – shortstop Jacob Gatewood and outfielder Monte Harrison – were shown the money and took it.  Apparently, both signing bonuses significantly exceeded their slot value – Gatewood’s by $450,000 and Harrison’s by $700,000.  Who knows
