7 Hours Left: Ruffin, Workman and Green Returning?

[UPDATE 7:08 PM -- Ruffin signs for $1.15 million according to KEYE] [UPDATE 4:18 PM -- Workman signs for $800,000, down 33% from his demans according to Keith Law] Nothing new to report which is both shocking and expected. It is shocking that Ruffin and Workman, two players with not much room to move up in the draft could be returning to Austin in just under seven hours. It is expected that we haven't heard anything all day as the only real motivating factor is the upcoming midnight deadline, when all sides will either have to go or get off the pot. While logic dictates that all three players should go pro, that Green's asking price is relatively high and that the Tigers must also pay for Ruffin lends credence to the idea that if anyone is coming back then it'll be him. Last night some were reporting that Workman was leaning towards turning down the Red Sox, which would be positive news except that 24 hours before the deadline is the perfect time to be floating a rumor like that in order to get the Red Sox to bite. If he's serious, though, it'd obviously be a great development for Augie and crew. Some cautious optimism right now is allowed, although it might be deflated rather quickly. Needless to say, the 2011 baseball team's success may be decided on a warm August night in 2010.
