Unless some red flag has come up in the last week or so, I don't think Keith Law has any clue what he is talking about. Zimmer is being discussed as the possible first pick overall and in the Baseball America top 100 rankings that just came out today he is the #1 ranked pitching prospect and the #3 ranked prospect overall.
I would love for the Reds to get him at #14, but unless something has changed recently it seems about as likely as Scott Rolen winning the batting title
