With the 84th overall pick in the 2006 draft, the Reds finally unveil their secret pick that I've been waiting to make all day by selecting Ryan Strieby, 1B, University of Kentucky.
Strieby is the SEC player of the year after hitting .341/.471/.707 with 20 home runs and 45 walks in 229 atbats this. At 6'6" and 235, he reminds me of Rockies prospect Ryan Shealy, or a right handed Dunn.
This pick may be considered a slight overdraft...but I love his bat.
