Theo Epstein Pleased With New Signees Heading Into Red Sox Minor League SystemIt was a long and wearisome process, but the Red Sox' administration signed each of its first 10 selections and 14 of its top 15 draft picks. Not a bad day in the front office.

Red Sox GM Theo Epstein said he was up until 3 a.m. working out deals with the organization's future prospects, but he couldn't be happier about the results.

"It was a great feeling," Epstein told NESN's Peter Gammons during Red Sox Gameday Live on Tuesday. "It was a long wait with the deadline in middle August to get these guys done. Hopefully we'll look back in several years and see it as a great day for the organization."

Amongst those top picks is the Cape Cod League's most-talked about pitcher, Anthony Ranaudo, who didn't allow an earned run over five starts for Brewster. The Sox also signed their 20th overall pick in the 2010 MLB Draft in second baseman Kolbrin Vitek.

"It was a long draft process, and then the signing process takes another couple months, but we were able to get just about everyone we wanted signed and delivered to our minor league system," Epstein added.

Watch Epstein's entire interview below, where he also talks about the much-anticipated return of Dustin Pedroia.
