    Sounds like RG ate his way from "Ramon Martinez" to "Livian Hernandez"

    Just a little observation on Dylan Moseley. Terry once told me that he has much better stuff than Dustin at the same age, but not near the discipline/drive. FWIW.
    Will trade this space for a #1 starter.

    Dylan has to have a college scholarship on the table, does he not?

    Rob Neyer's column today is about the "scout speak" from the draft (those, uh, interesting comments like:

    Re: 2004 Cincinnati Reds MLB Draft Selections

    Neyer's piece notes that B.J. Szymanski has a "race horse type body" and that he resembles John Olerud. I'm going to assume that resemblance is only from the neck up, because Olerud got a nice, possumy figure. You can't be both athletically architected and built like John Olerud. And if it's only a facial resemblance, why bother to include it? That Olerud line is either completely incogruous or totally irrelevant.

    FWIW, can this be archived in the future? Im not overly concerned about right now, since I might bold whoever we sign.
