Re: Jeff Passan of Yahoo: Reds to sign Cuban lefty Aroldis Chapman?
Another thought that occurred to me...how much do you Chapman considered the Reds after seeing the success of Cueto and Volquez under Soto. Not to even mention some of our other Latin signings over the past year. We could be developing an atmosphere that could really benefit us in Latin American signings. I don't think the importance of that can be understated....a ton of the top baseball talent is coming to the US via that pipeline right now. Until these players get put into the draft the Reds could be developing a huge advantage over the rest of MLB.
