    And he was 23 in A ball not 24.
    The Reds system thins out fast enough that I can see it taking a flier on Kuhnel if you're a velo junkie. I didn't, but I can see the thought process behind it.

    My votes this time were mostly relievers. Powers, Kuhnel, Hendrix, Sanmartin, Reyes.
    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.

    That's fair. Some of my enthusiasm for the guy is just based off of unbridled optimism.
    I'd always prefer a guy with slightly worse stuff but MLB caliber control.
    The guy was (in prospect terms) still recently viewed as a possible first rounder and given a lot of money over slot to sign.
    That alone gets a 21 year old, 3rd round pick, LHSP with under 100 career innings pitched into my top 40.
    (Referring to Jack Hannahan signing with a Korean team)
    Since there are no teams on the moon, I guess South Korea's far enough from Cincinnati to satisfy me.

    In this range, I only care about ceiling. High floor guys at this range rarely make it past AA. Heatherly has a very high bust probability, but if he can figure it out, he could get really good.

    Pitchers don't tend to learn 95 mph fastballs. But every once in a while, they can learn to throw the ball in the strike zone. It probably won't happen with Heatherly because of how bad his control is currently, but at least there's some upside there if he does.
