Cubs Sign Almora

. Monday, July 9, 2012

Sidestepping embarrassment just in front of Friday's signing deadline, the Cubs agreed to terms with first round pick Albert Almora, who I have it on good information is not a third Alomar brother with dyslexia. The reason for the delay looks like the $3.9 million contract, with the slot money being somewhere around $3.25 for that position (sixth overall). It may seem like a lot of money, but we're already paying $6 million for a Cuban pitcher to put up a 7+ ERA in Peoria, so I'm cool with this.

This concludes my exhaustive knowledge of Albert Almora. If Rizzo is any indication, the shops around Wrigley Field will be stocking Almora shirts later this afternoon.
