    Detmers dominated East Carolina today for 7 innings other than a tape-measure HR surrendered to Boston Red fave Spencer Brickhouse.

    Sounds like a Monkees tribute band.

    Mentioning only because there is no 2021 draft thread - Kumar Rocker tossed a no hitter with 19 strikeouts last night. He’s been inconsistent like a freshman this year, but improving over the course of the season.

    Re: 2020 Draft Class

    MLB Pipeline is out with a too-early mock:

    Here's our early 2020 mock Draft

    It's still 12 months away, but the 2020 Draft is shaping up to be the best since 2011, when the first 11 picks included Gerrit Cole, Trevor Bauer, Anthony Rendon, Francisco Lindor, Javier Baez and George Springer. Mookie Betts and Kyle Hendricks were just two of several notable later-round steals.

    After a 2019 Draft during which scouts bemoaned the lack of college pitchers worthy of the first round, there will be no such complaints next year. MLB Pipeline's top-rated 2020 prospect is Georgia right-hander Emerson Hancock, and two more college arms factor into our projections for the first 10 picks below. If we extended our way-too-early mock draft to 20, another half-dozen would have made it, including Auburn righty Tanner Burns, Louisville lefty Reid Detmers and a second Bulldogs righty in Cole Wilcox.
    8. Reds: Patrick Bailey, C, North Carolina State
    The class of the 2020 catchers, Bailey is a switch-hitter with power from both sides of the plate as well as solid throwing, receiving and blocking skills.
    The world is a messy place. People are inconsistent and complicated. Maybe we should see how different things could be if we gave grace and forgiveness to our fellow human beings when they fail to be perfect in our eyes. -- me

    Saw that mock a few days ago. I know a lot can change between then and now, but if the Reds ended up with Bailey, I think we should be thrilled.

    As it stands now, if we can get someone out of the Bailey, Austin Martin, Dylan Crews, Garrett Mitchell, Heston Kjerstad, Pete Crow-Armstrong, JT Ginn, Tommy Mace, CJ Van Eyk, Carson Montgomery, Reid Detmers group, that seems like a good way to start a draft class somewhere in the 8-15 pick range.

    Having sat in TD Ameritrade Park and watched Austin Martin hit two HRs yesterday (including one off Detmers), color me a believer in him at #3.

    We are now 10th in 2020 MLB draft (just passed the Padres), could get as high as 6th if we continue to play this poorly.

    I am not for tanking, but I do think it would be prudent to start looking at some of the potential 40 man candidates for next season.

    I know others vehemently disagree, but I wouldn’t mind seeing us lose enough to get up to 6th. Sure it helps to instill a winning culture, but I’m not going to be watching many games over the next month and the difference between the 6th overall pick and the 12th can be very meaningful. Can’t say the same for a handful of September wins.

    I'm not sure this is a very persuasive argument lol

    The doormat days need to come to an end, for better or worse that phase is over. I also don't see how they possibly end up as high as 6 unless they have just an abysmal September and by far their worst month of the season.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    I’m just saying, it doesn’t really matter if they go 10-20 in September or 20-10. It’s not like the latter instantly instills a winning culture, or the former makes it impossible for them to compete next year. Once you get to this point in the season, the only thing that really matters for the long run is having the right pieces in place and talent in the organization. It’s the same reason rosters expand and teams give minor leaguers extended tryouts this time of year. Like I said, I’m fully expecting most people on this board to disagree. It’s not the same as rooting for them to tank or be a doormat all year, I just think for one month it doesn’t make a difference on the overall culture, but it does make a difference in talent coming into the organization.

    Re: 2020 Draft Class

    I rooted four years for Reds to get high draft position.

    This year I root to win MLB games. They will still get a draft pick in the top half.

    Fully consistent with that, I’d like Aquino, Van Meter, Senzel (obviously), Ervin, Kuhnel, Mahle (if healthy), and any similar young guys get playing time if they are potentially in 2020 plans.
