    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.

    Arrogance and Mel Kiper like knowledge of his subject. Good combo.

    He reminds me a lot of Micheal Choice out of the Oakland system.

    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.

    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?

    Do you see him going to Arizona or straight to Dayton?

    I expect him to go to Arizona for their little "camp" then head to Billings.

    10 days, I believe.


    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?

    Smart guy signing quick, I think this insures he spends a split at Billings/Dayton if he gets it done, and then starts next year in Cali. I really like the knew signing slot system as the kids don't loose a year waiting on other guys around them to set a signing scale.

    Tons more potential with the bat. Won't be the base runner (not many can be). Not the same kind of potential on defense either.
