If Law doesn't like the Reds draft, I love it even more. It's amazing this guy still had a job.
Phil Ervin sounds like a NASCAR driver.
He reminds me a lot of Micheal Choice out of the Oakland system.

Went in Cincinnati locker room and met the players and first person I met was @DatDudeBP and he was clowning on me
I can see that to a degree. Although I believe Choice came out more as a power + patience prospect. Ervin with a better hit tool -- at least I hope so.He reminds me a lot of Micheal Choice out of the Oakland system.

Maybe he can play center maybe he can't, but riddle me this batman? If him and Billy are in the same outfield as it looks right now who is playing center?
Ervin has officially signed for slot money.
When does Billings start up?
Also, Buckley was just on the radio here in Cincinnati. While he didn't mention anyone specifically, when asked about what players would do, he said they would go to Arizona, take a physical and get in some tune up work then go play either for Arizona or Billings. So, take that for what it is worth.
Doug - as a prospect, how would you compare/contrast Ervin to Hamilton? Call me crazy, but from what Im reading it seems that Ervin has better overall MLB potential while lacking *only* BH's speed. Thoughts?
