Major League Baseball sent marketing executives to meeting with Kyler Murray

Major League Baseball sent marketing executives to meeting with Kyler Murray

9 overall pick by the Oakland A's in 2018, but all indications point to Murray favoring football.

According to USA Today's Bob Nightengale - Oakland A's president Billy Beane and an assortment of other people plan to meet with the Heisman trophy victor in an effort to dissuade him from going to the National Football League and play for them instead.

But it seems MLB is equally prepared to consider all options to keep Murray in baseball, a sport that is increasingly desperate to grow star players.

Murray and the A's are looking to reach a new deal, according to the San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser. The A's allowed him to return to the University of Oklahoma, where he put up historic numbers at quarterback and won the Heisman. According to USA Today's Bob Nightengale, the team will meet with Murray today to try and convince him to choose baseball.

Global PC shipments resume slide in fourth quarter
Consumer demand remained weak in the holiday season, with holiday sales no longer a major factor driving consumer demand for PCs. Finally, at Acer , shipments dropped 18.3 percent to 3.861 million, while its market share fell to 5.6 percent form 6.6 percent.

Murray's contract gave him $4.8 million in bonus money from being taken ninth, which means he's guaranteed to have that coming in, but there's now a near consensus that he will be a late first round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.

Oakland would have to add Murray to the 40-man roster to make such changes.

We should know more about Murray's final decision soon.

So, either something is off with that $15 million figure or Boras has something allowed under MLB guidelines in the works (i.e. Murray having a full-on MLB-level salary as a minor leaguer after exhausting that $1,100 per month maximum in his first minor-league season). At 5-foot-9, Murray would be the smallest quarterback in the National Football League since Doug Flutie, but he is reportedly regarded as a potential first-rounder. The A's last week said they expected Murray to declare for the NFL Draft by Monday's deadline.
