Official 2012 Draft Day Thread (Day 2)
My top 10 guys still available that would fit well with the Reds:
1. Hunter Virant LHP HS
2. Alex Wood LHP Georgia
3. Tanner Rahier 3B HS
4. Adam Brett Walker OF? Jacksonville
5. Rio Ruiz 3B HS
6. Jake Barrett RHP Arizona St
7. Carson Kelly 3B HS
8. Chris Beck RHP Georgia Southern
9. Brett Mooneyham LHP Stanford
10. Mitch Brown RHP HS
Hopefully the Reds can get one or two of these guys with the 78th, 109th, 142nd and/or 172nd picks today.
While some might argue against taking another high schooler, it doesn't seem as if any of the guys they've already drafted should be budget-busters. In fact, they may be able to get Travieso or Gelalich to sign for less than slot, freeing up some money to throw at one of the falling high schoolers in the second or third rounds today. I'm specifically thinking about Virant, Rahier or Kelly.
Skye Bolt is another difficult sign who could be interesting if the Reds think they could persuade him to forego college. Not to mention the coolest name in the draft.
