Rays Prospect Nick Sawyer, Diamond In The Rough?

Pitcher – Nick Sawyer was the 1232nd pick in the 2012 which only had 1238 total picks! The Rays didn’t give him the customary coupon to a local steakhouse either…they gave him $50K signing bonus……$50K – How did he pull that!? Seriously though, was he surprised by the full court press the Rays applied on him?

I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
