    Leonardo Seminati

    How did I only today learn from Doug's site that the Reds signed a kid out of Italy over the summer? Gotta like that the Reds are looking all over for young talent, even if Italy isn't a hotbed of major league talent.

    According to Seminati in this interview he had interest from a bunch of teams but chose the Reds.


    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Don't feel too bad. I didn't know they signed him either, until I saw the stinkin' roster.

    He participated in the U18 tournament that was recently concluded. Nice to see we are beating the bushes out there.

    He's got a name very fitting for the team. Make it happen (Seminati Reds...)

    I'm not a man of many words. Read my posts, and you'll see what I mean.

    Some people are Optimists (They see the glass 1/2 full).
    Others are Pessimists (They see the glass 1/2 empty).
    Me, I'm a Realist. 1/2 empty IS 1/2 full.

    First baseman Leonardo Seminati starred for the Italian national 18-and-under team at the WBSC U-18 Baseball World Cup in Canada in September, hitting .424/.531/.654 with a pair of homers in 26 at-bats. He went from there to Arizona for his first action as a member of the Reds, participating in instructional league play, which runs through Saturday for Cincinnati.

    "This is our first time we've seen him," Reds farm director Jeff Graupe said. "He's playing above expectations."

    "He has major power," Graupe said. "He hit a ball over the scoreboard in Glendale. But he's also a really good athlete. He has the ability to play first, third, and I think he could play the outfield."

    How about "The Seminati Kid"
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.
