    I hear Serrano makes the bats afraid of his curveball.

    BA mocks Hunter Harvey to Reds, a kid with a power arm. Thoughts?
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    It says his fastball sits in the mid-90s and has been clocked as high as 97. His curveball has plus-plus potential. And he has no interest in college and wants to sign. His father pitched in the bigs, so he has the pedigree.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    If this year's #27 pick in the first round is as good as the Reds' last #27 pick in the first round, it will be all good.

    I'd like to see Phillip Ervin fall to us. Cape MVP, athletic college OF'er. BA has him as the 3rd best pure hitter in college.

    I like Ervin too. Definitely prefer him to Austin Wilson.

    And you could start him off in Bakersfield and he wouldn't be overmatched.

    Based on mechanics or based on him being a young power arm?

    Little bit of both. Throws too many curves too, and supposedly has been throwing a lot of them for a very long time.

    I was under the impression that they had limited his involvement in traveling teams to protect his arm.

    Was just reading on http://www.motownsports.com/forums/m...ft-thread.html and a lot of draft "experts" are predicting Anderson will not last longer than the 20th pick. Sounds like either the Cardinals will draft him at 19 or the Tigers at 20. Both teams have been scouting him heavily. Apparently before this year he was mostly a basketball player and once he started focusing on baseball his numbers exploded. Sounds like an extremely athletic kid that can field and hit but with an average throwing arm. This kid would be perfect for the Reds in my opinion, may make the sting of trading Didi a little easier to deal with.
