Hopefully he's not thinking about going back to Louisville for his senior year. There could be an opening at second base for the Reds in a couple years if you know what I mean.
Wright should already be playing at Billings; instead he's sitting at home doing nothing. I don't get it. We're talking about a fifth-round pick here.
When this could be the only time you ever get paid, you try to take full advantage of it. Don't just settle for something. The odds are pretty good that he never sniffs the major leagues. He needs to understand that (or at least his agent does) and understand he is likely about to get paid for the one and only time up front for something. Make it count.
