    Was that when Devin Mesoraco had to stand in the corner all last September?

    I will be here all week folks.

    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.

    Actually, I can with 100% certainty say it and the guy who drafts for the Reds talked about it today actually. You can listen here if you would like: http://espn.go.com/espnradio/play?id=9337831

    Gray, Blair Test Positive For Banned Stimulant
    By Steve Adams [June 3 at 9:56pm CST]
    9:56pm: Marshall right-hander Aaron Blair also tested positive for Adderall, reports Conor Glassey of Baseball America. Blair ranked as the No. 41 draft prospect, per BA.

    Glassey spoke to a pair of front office executives from different teams, and each believed Gray's usage was a one-time mistake that won't be held against him. A source close to Blair told Glassey that his usage was also a one-time instance.

    Forgot where I read it but many people think the new market teams with exploit thru the the draft is finding athletic first base that if needed could play left field. examples in the article were Mark Trumbo and Donald Lutz. Article mentioned teams like the Padres , Rays, Astros, , and Twins are more likely to pounce on these players in the earlier rounds.

    In Law's mock, he has McKinney going the pick before the Reds to the Yankees. ESPN and Law put together a draft tool where you can change picks and I switched the Yankees to taking Denney (the Reds' currently mocked pick) and with McKinney on the board, the simulator has the Reds taking Will Crowe over McKinney. From the scouting reports I have read, I like McKinney #1, Denney #2 and Crowe #3. That being said, I would be happy with any of the three picks. As stated earlier, I like Austin Wilson over all three. I am excited to see who will be drafted by the Reds on Thursday.

    In terms of targets, I also like McKinney and recently posted on the other thread my ideal targets with 10 days to go:

    PICK 27

    1. JP Crawford HS SS
    2. Trey Ball HS LHP/OF
    3. Ian Clarkin HS LHP
    4. Austin Wilson Stanford OF
    5. Sean Manaea Indiana St. LHP
    (tie). Jon Denney HS C

    PICK 38

    1. Billy McKinney HS OF (although at this point, I'd probably swap him with Manaea above)
    2. Tim Anderson JuCo SS/2B
    3. Rob Kaminsky HS LHP
    4. Hunter Dozier Stephen F. Austin SS/3B
    5. Hunter Green HS LHP
    (tie) Matt Krook HS LHP

    PICK 67

    1. Justin Williams HS OF
    2. JaCoby Jones LSU 2B
    3. Cord Sandberg HS OF
    4. Blake Taylor HS LHP
    5. Riley Unroe HS SS
    With 2 days to go and a little bit clearer of a picture, I'll modify my wishlist (it looks like Crawford, Ball and Clarkin will all likely be off the board by 27. Otherwise I'd be ecstatic with any of those three):

    Group A (Guys I'd love to see at 27)

    1. Austin Wilson OF
    2. Jon Denney C
    3. Billy McKinney OF
    4. Tim Anderson SS/2B
    5. Sean Manaea LHP (signability and injuries concern me)

    Group B (Guys I'd love to see at 38)

    1. Rob Kaminsky LHP
    2. Hunter Dozier SS/3B
    3. Phillip Ervin OF - reminders of LaMarre & Weeks have me a bit tentative on him but he may be good value at 38
    4. Hunter Green LHP
    5. Matt Krook LHP

    Group C (Guys I'd love to see at 67) remains close to the same:

    1. Justin Williams HS OF
    2. JaCoby Jones LSU 2B
    3. Riley Unroe HS SS
    4. Cord Sandberg HS OF
    5. Blake Taylor HS LHP

    Where is the best free source to get more than a blurb about these draft eligibles?

    Thanks again. I was hoping round 2 was also the first day.

    Lot's and lot's of pitching in the early rankings 1-40 on mlb.com. I'm sorting for offense where I can and would prefer Wilson, Ervin, Denny, Judge, JP Crawford in that order. With a BPA approach it seems most likely the Reds will end up with pitching though. Hoping Manaea could slip to us. The wisest choice always seems to end up going with control type pitchers in the early round, as they usually always throw 92+ anyway.

    Update:

    1. Astros - Colin Moran
    2. Cubs - Mark Appel
    3. Rockies - Kris Bryant
    4. Twins - Jonathan Gray
    5. Indians -Austin Meadows
    6. Marlins - Clint Frazier
    7. Red Sox - Kohl Stewart
    8. Royals - Braden Shipley
    9. Pirates - Reese McGuire
    10. Blue Jays -Jon Denney

    Heard Denney could go to the Red Sox at 7 if Stewart wants to much.....

    According to who? And if accurate, Denney shot way up.

    Red Sox beat writers. Red Sox hosted Frazier, Meadows, and Denney today in workouts.
