However, in a previous post where you brought up busts like Gruler, Howington, Espinoza ... that came across as jaded. Everything about the Reds sucked during those days; not just our draft picks (although the poor drafts obviously contributed to the Reds overall suckiness).
Again, times have changed. How could a Reds fans who is paying close attention not have faith in Chris Buckley?
I have great faith in Buckley ... but even the best scouts and player development guys swing and miss WAY more often than they hit one out of the park.
