New, 1 comment

Matt Stties was the 1,000th player selected in the 2010 MLB draft. He's now facing a decision: Sign with the Cubs or move onto Missouri to play for the Tigers.

The answer, he says, will come with the Cubs offer.

"I am in a great spot right now," he said. "I want to pitch professionally, and I know what my dollar number is now and so do they," he said. "If they offer that number I will most likely sign. If not, I head to Mizzou and will look forward to pitching for the Tigers."

This will be an interesting decision. If he doesn't sign with the Cubs, he'll go to Mizzou then be drafted again next year in three years.
