At this point, I too am a bit disappointed by the Reds selections. I would've liked to have seen the Reds take a gamble on a a guy that slipped because of signability issues (e.g., Neighborgall) and more high-ceiling pitchers. Many of these selections look like they are guys that the club thought they could sign.
However--this scouting department deserves the benefit of the doubt. Gary Hughes, et al., have several decades (hundreds of years?) of experience between them, and these past 4 or 5 drafts have been the best that the club has had since the late 1960s.
