Inconsequential based on signing bonus? So, only Round 1 or 2 picks are consequential?
Putting overslot signings aside for this discussion, last year the Orioles signed their 9th round pick Devin Jones
for $97,500. The 10th round pick was signed for $20,000, and the Royals, picking right after the Orioles, signed their 10th round pick for $75,000, the same as Lin got.
The Angels signed their 5th round pick for $80,000. Lin got more money than two sixth-round picks, and the Red Sox spent $85,000 for theirs.
Bonuses are all over the board due to drafting strategies and overslots, and people falling due to doubts about signability, but Lin's bonus is clearly Round 6-10 money.
That is not "inconsequential".
