Draft and the Braves Philosophy about Slot

Okay I'll be honest here, I don't know much about how the MLB draft works. Since I'm an NFL and NHL draft freak, it was interesting to take a look at how the MLB Draft works.

The Braves, I hear, are very committed to usually not bust slot. I was wondering what makes Frank Wren and the owners to be so cheap about their money. The Braves aren't what you would call a "small market" team, but less fans seem to flock to Turner Field these days. However, since we don't have access to their financial records I can't make any assumptions. Lots of mock drafts have the Braves taking a high school or college pitcher that won't demand too much cash. So what do you think the Braves will do this year? Follow their old rules or actually draft a player with power. The system seems to be loaded with pitching and solid positional players with average power and good defense. Hopefully, Wren pays for a player that can really contribute to the team.
