I DO like Stubbs and LaPorta, but with the college pitchers at the top of this draft, it's almost a certainty at least a couple of the better ones mentioned in this thread will be there at 8. It'd be a shame if the Reds didn't get one this time.
I agree. Votto and Bruce are the only "real" prospect bats we have that are functioning. Rosales has hit the injury bug and the other college talent usually isn't that good.
