All Hail "The PLAN!"

NFA shares the poop on some great news:

The Nationals are making progress on signing 6th-round pick Jack McGreary, who fell because of signability concerns. McGreary has first-round talent, and is rumored to want big money to sign, otherwise he would attend Stanford.

The article that Brian linked, says that they're relatively close on money, and that the Nats are willing to let him (and likely help him) attend classes. The latter is specific enough to lead credence to the whole report, and an indication that things might be close.

If they get McGreary (and Smoker), the draft will have gone better than Jim Bowden's wildest dreams could've imagined. And it's a great leap forward for "The PLAN!"
