Re: Baseball America's Draft Report Card - Reds Edition
Ravin was listed as one of our pitchers that had a great fastaball, yes. I am really excited about some of the guys we got. They may not have the ceiling of a Homer Bailey, but quite a few of them seem to have more upside than I gave them credit for.
I think Buckley did a pretty good job scouting his picks. I just disagreed with his 1st round selection - although if you consider Stubb's ceiling, and the overall weakness of the draft - taking that kind of a lotto pick with 1 pick perhaps isn't the worst thing in the world.
