    I'm really hoping we don't take a HS pitcher.
    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.

    I'm hopeful they land Shea Langeliers - C, Baylor.

    Stinson and Misneer are the guys I'm most interested in keeping an eye on. Big, projectable, college players. This is the last high draft pick the Reds will ever have, so make it count.

    As far as Shea Langeliers, I suppose he'd be all right if Bryson Pennywise and Sean Tommyknocker weren't available.

    Some changes to their draft board. For all of you Misner fans, he might be playing too well to get to the seventh pick.

    Seems like some fairly polished talent there in the top 10. Reds should have a chance to grab a great player at #7, and hopefully it's the last top-10 pick for the Reds in a while.

    I'll take a top SS or OF talent, prep or college, but if Vaughn somehow drops I'd take him too. Reds should just keep trading for starting pitchers, or wait until the next couple of rounds.

    I'd love to see one of the big 3 SS (Abrams, Witt or Stott) fall to the Reds.

    If not, give me Misner.

    It's always tempting to simply go BPA, but I'd like to see at least 2 pitchers and a SS in the first 4 picks and I'd prefer to see pick 7 at one of those positions.
    Wouldn't mind another catcher in the first 5 either.

    We need a SS who can stay at SS, too. Jeter Downs looked like a phenomenal pick before it became apparent he was likely headed to 2B.

    Since there are no teams on the moon, I guess South Korea's far enough from Cincinnati to satisfy me.

    If he has a full season better than his sophomore numbers, that's probably true.

    Half of those won't be in the 1st Rd when the season is over.

    Texas Tech 3B Josh Jung and Vanderbilt RF J.J. Bleday both have some buzz in the industry as being in the mix to be the third-best college bat behind Oregon State C Adley Rutschman and Cal 1B Andrew Vaughn (both recent risers themselves); Jung and Bleday have moved up to reflect this. Bleday is off to a quick start and looks more athletic than he has in the past, while Jung is a hit-first type who could improve considerably with more loft in his swing in pro ball, but compares favorably to some recent top-10 overall college bats. Others college bats in that mix are UNLV SS Bryson Stott, North Carolina LF Michael Busch, and the big riser in the last update, Missouri RF Kameron Misner.
    Duke LHP Graeme Stinson looked like the clear top pitcher in the class when the college season was set to start, with scouts having confidence that his mid-90s fastball and 70 slider could transition to starting full-time. He’s performed well, but the velocity has kept creeping down — he was into the 80s this weekend — to the point where scouts are openly questioning if there’s an arm problem or if Stinson simply can’t start and needs to be seen as a reliever going forward. Even a worst-case scenario still has him in the top 30 picks or so, but his stock has dipped a good bit.

    Re: 2019 Draft Class

    This is from the MLB.com writeup on Bleday:

    Bleday immediately won a starting job at Vanderbilt as a freshman and was the Commodores' best hitter as a sophomore, though he missed six weeks with an oblique injury last spring. He made up for lost time by starring in the Cape Cod League, where scouts voted him the top prospect in the prestigious summer circuit. If he continues to hit for more power, he could be the first college outfielder selected in June.
    The Reds love them some top Cape Cod performers.

    I would be pretty happy with Bleday.
