    Latest From Team One.....8:26am

    Just talked with Jeff Spellman of TEAMONEBASEBALL.COM
    He tells me it appears the Padres have a deal done with SS Matt Bush.
    He now says he thinks the Reds will take SS Chris Nelson or RHP Homer Bailey.

    2004 Draft thread

    We should have a "sticky" draft thread, shouldn't we?
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg

    If the Reds take Nelson M2 needs to be given a parade or something. He called that six months ago, at least.

    I'd still take a college starter though.

    Sounds like my idea of a good draft.

    Baseball America said Bush signed for 3.1 million, a little bit less than league average.

    Boy...I sure hope he's right. Nelson is special by all accounts.

    Terry Reynolds thinks it will be a pitcher. The Reds' scouting director isn't basing that on what the club needs so much as the way the draft stacks up.
    "My guess is it will be a pitcher just because there are so many quality pitchers on the board," he said.

    If they draft Bailey I'll ... I'll ... do something throroughly dramatic.

    With our current prospects at SS (none) and the state of the position in ML baseball, in which Mark Belanger and Roger Metzger types are becoming standard fare again (Adam Everett and Rey Ordonez, just to name a few are employed, for example), if Nelson is all that and a bag of chips, sounds like a good grab.

    I also hope it is not Bailey, I don't like drafting someone who could spurn you and go to college if they don't give him the money he wants. If they draft him they better be sure they can sign him.

    I hope Sowers or Niemann is on the board when the Reds pick.

    HS arms scare me, though if Homer became Kerry Wood in a few years I would get over that fear.

    Terry Reynolds agrees with Redread's prediction

    Don't worry about the Reds picking someone that will spurn them. If the Reds
    are as motivated about this draft as they claim to be, I'm sure they've already
    worked the finances out with their finalists for the #1 pick. As cautious as the BinderMan is, I'm sure he's only going to pick a guy #1 that he can sign.
    This is different than a couple years ago, when they deliberately flushed their #1 pick. (At least I hope so).
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
