I love Drabek's stuff (hell, I was amazed and shocked he fell to Washington at 15 in the mock) -- but I hate taking high school pitchers in the first round. It's a quandry. I think I'd be very happy with him if he was selected, though. The only name that's been attached to the Reds that I'm not really not thrilled about is Drew Stubbs, honestly. I'd especially dislike Stubbs as a pick if he was taken AHEAD of Drabek and Linecum.
Having said that, I really don't see the Reds going after Drabek -- just a feeling I have.
