    Since he's been scouting director, how many good ones has he taken besides Tony Cingrani and Donnie Joseph?

    I'm liking the Thompson pick too (BA ranked him #119 overall) ... but I have a well-documented fetish for shortstops.

    Make it 4 LHP now for the Cards.

    I think an undervalued talent in the game is the hitter/pitcher. Can teams find a way to have them do both in the lower levels and let their talent decide which direction to go in? Do these guys truly need to be 100% pitcher or hitter once drafted or can someone like Thompson be 80/20, at least get the bat in his hands a few times per week just in case?

    Agreed. Donnie Joseph counts as good?

    I actually really like the Thompson pick. I like the athletic middle infielders from South Carolina, Georgia and Mississippi. I wanted Tim Anderson. Hopefully Thompson can realize the same kind of success that Brandon Phillips, Zack Cozart and Billy Hamilton have had in this organization.

    In keeping with the overall theme of this year's draft, 3 of the Reds top 6 picks are African American. That's a good thing (and I don't believe has happened in my lifetime)

    Zach Weiss was a 10th round pick of the Pirates in 2010.

    Point taken. Though he obviously did have some trade value.

    JJ Cooper @jjcoop36

    We're at the point where most of the top names left on our board will likely go in the 11th round and on now where slot money isn't at risk

    Would really like to see Reds take a gamble and try to sign one of:

    Jake Brentz LHP
    Dustin Driver RHP
    Garrett Williams LHP
    AJ Puk RHP
    Chandler Eden RHP
    Cavan Biggio 2B
    Ryan Boldt OF

    Seems like Serrano and Jones are completely unsignable, but these guys seem like there is at least a chance. I wouldn't pay a ton to Biggio or Boldt (not like Biggio needs it) but it would be nice to land one of the pitchers.

    Every year I always pine for the top HS LHP in the draft. 2 years ago it was Norris. Last year it was Fried. This year it was Clarkin or Ball. Every year I end up disappointed.
