Re: Alonso thrilled to go to Reds at No. 7
Where did the Beckhman SS that we passed on end up being taken? I am just curious.
If the Reds' scouts think that Yonder is going to turn into a Berkman type player, I can't complain. I am thrilled that they took the guy they thought was the best player available. That's always the smart thing to do (vs drafting for needs or signablity).
I also like how they took a college reliever with their second pick. With bullpen arms being at such a premium, I think it's wise to target them in the draft.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
