Re: Reds Orginzational Woes
Drafting: The Reds seem to exist on the "even-a-blind-squirrel-occasionally-finds-a-nut" method. We've come up with decent players like Kearns, Dunn, Votto, Cueto, Bailey, and Bruce. But one can't help but wonder if they were accidental picks or part of an actual planned strategy.
Scouting: Seems the Reds' scouts look for apples when everyone else in baseball is looking for oranges.
Development: Guys like Austin Kearns, Homer Bailey, and Jay Bruce ought to be tearing the league up right now. You have to wonder what their ceiling would be had they been drafted by the Indians, the Braves, or some other team who knew how to develop talent.
Opinions are like belly buttons. Everybody has one, and they don't want someone else's shoved into their face.
