    That was a pleasant read, thanks for the heads up.
    Well, that's what those words mean. He was here. If they don't keep him, he will have been lost/subtracted. I headed out the door today with two shoes on my feet. If I don't return with them, I have lost them. If I do return with them, I haven't added them. ---M2

    Love the strategy the Reds (and Mets) took. The baseball draft is so incredibly top heavy, it makes a lot more sense to try to get three or four top 50 guys and let the rest of the picks be college seniors/organizational guys than it does to try to smooth out the draft. In many ways, it's the opposite of the NFL draft.

    Love this pick more and more. Hadn't realized Fangraphs had him as the 25th prospect in the class. Getting him in the 3rd round is incredible.

    Is this guy the the true heir to Votto?

    Wife and I saw the two wins against the E-Twins Thursday and Friday. Pioneer Park was great, and both teams actually impressed.

    Callihan's family was staying at same hotel, so we met them. Very nice family and intelligent and humble young man.

    He said that Brewers could have taken him at #28, but picked Ethan Small when he fell to them.

    Seemed to be happy that the Reds chose him. Wishing him the best of luck in the organization.

    Calihan is hitting pretty good of late after a slow start. .281/.324/.516 in July after going 6 for 30 with no walks or XBHs in June.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Callihan was named to MLB Pipeline prospect of the week team...

    https://www.mlb.com/news/prospect-te...ek-for-week-19

    3B: Tyler Callihan, Greeneville Reds (Rookie)
    (Reds’ No. 5 prospect)
    5 G, .368/.381/.842, 1 R, 3 3B, 1 HR, 4 RBI, 1 BB, 4 K

    Callihan posted multiple hits in three of five games for Greeneville and capped his week by hitting his fifth home run of the season on Sunday after notching a triple in three of his previous four contests. After signing for nearly twice his slot’s value as the Reds’ third-round pick, Callihan has opened his career by batting .260 with 19 extra-base hits, 23 RBIs and eight steals over 42 games in the Appalachian League.

    I see where Callihan has 5 triples and is 8/10 in SB. I don't remember reading much about his speed so this is a nice surprise. I think we had a really strong draft in 2019.

    We might’ve found somebody who actually delivers in the clutch. Just hit a grand slam to tie it up in the bottom of the 7th. Pretty much a playoff game as well.
    I love the fact that he came in, played damn near every day, and seemed to be aggressive. No coddling whatsoever. Hopefully he is a fast riser
