    2019 Draft Class

    Never too early, right?

    https://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/mlb-...2019-and-2020/

    If I had to call my shot though, I don't think the Reds will finish with the worst record and subsequent first overall pick. Probably top 3 though. The White Sox, Royals, and Marlins are all gonna be really bad this year too.

    If you're looking for a tagline, maybe "Play Like **** for Witt" works.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Don't know much, but watched some tape of Zack Thompson and I really don't like his throwing motion. It looks violent, seems like an arm injury waiting to happen. I'd avoid.

    Take that expert opinion based off of a youtube video for what you will.

    I watch a lot of FSU games, my cousin (once removed) is a Freshman reliever on the team, and Drew Mendoza is a stud out there for sure. Makes all the plays and all the tough ones too. That's all can add for now.

    Looking ahead to the 2019 draft class...

    Perhaps a shade early, but I'm sure lists exists already of the top prospects for next years draft (at the moment)

    As of the conclusion of the draft, the Reds sit (tied) with the 3rd least amount of wins, a very good chance that they draft in the top 5 yet again. I think we all thought/hoped this would be the last year for a long time that the Reds would draft in the top 5, or even top 10. Anyhoo.... start the discussion.

    From yesterday's chat:

    1:29
    Cory: Who is the early favorite for #1 overall next year?

    1:30
    Kiley McDaniel: Bryson Stott SS at UNLV, Hunter Barco prep lefty in Jacksonville are two of the main names but that will clear up a bit in the next month.

    Man, that’s what scares me about India. He wasn’t even on the Fangraphs list last year.

    And 14 months ago Scooter Gennett was released by the Brewers because he was going to make 2.5M and he was a solid-at-best hitter.

    Things change, and when you are talking about 20-year-old athletes, things can change big time and in a very, very short period of time.

    He was also highly touted out of HS, and chose to go to UF. A couple "meh" seasons, but then he changed his body composition, made some other adjustments, and tore it up. Things change greatly over the course of a year.

    Reds hold the tiebreaker over all of these teams except Detroit and the White Sox (in Green). Padres in Blue to acknowledge their above .500 play in all of past 10, 20 and 30 games.

    Re: 2019 Draft Class

    I wouldn’t mind one more top 5 pick to get our SS of the future. After that I don’t want to draft in the top 10 again for another decade.
    Go BLUE!!!
