    Re: 2005 Cincinnati Reds Draft Selections

    the Reds first five rounds look nothing like the one i grabbed in UC's computer lab this afternoon...but with the exception of Wood and LeCure, i like the Reds first 5-rounds.

    RHP Cesar Carillo-i've been pimping him for awhile as the Reds' pick. with the injury to Hansen, it made it easier to take Carillo.

    RF Brian Pettway-thought about taking Maiques before him, but the weight loss and training he did put him above Maiques for me.

    RHP Kenny Maiques-see above. i didn't think he'd make it to the fourth round though. i had Justin Sellers marked here orignally, but Billy Beane happens. then i had James Avery here. but Maiques is far superior to him IMO.

    SS Reese Havens-the A's took my SS who i was going to take in round 3. wanting to draft a MI, i took Havens as i think he'll be emerging as FeLo becomes too expensive.

    1B Justin Smoak-i like him as a LF more than a 1B, i think. i was going to take Slayden in the 5th round, but his injuries scared me off. i doubt Smoak will/would sign though, which is probably why he made it to this point

    Bo Lanier and Jason Vecchio are two great mysteries on how a scout sold these two. Look at Vecchio in the prior two years:

    Lanier's ERA is over 6 this year, seems like he might be able to get some Ks, but my gosh, how could he get drafted?

    "His advisor put him into the wrong core classes, so he was one class short and couldn't play," Reynolds said. "We saw him through a number of workouts, and currently he's pitching for the North Woods League, which is a summer collegiate league. We've seen him in a lot of different environments."
    He's going to be the sleeper of this draft. Texas is a pretty good baseball school, and this guy was going to be the ace of the staff. He fell off the map due to an advisor mistake. Bad for him as far as 2005 and the College World Series goes, good for the Reds if he signs.

    If he signs? Unless he's also being advised by Mark Harrington's adviser, what could he possibly hold out for?

    It is looking like a pretty smart pick, I agree. There is nothing wrong with picking up bullpen arms in the 4th or 5th round.

    Advisor mistake, huh? I guess he can't figure out how to fill out his own schedules. Oh well, no one says you have to be an intellectual giant to play baseball.

    Reds 19th round pick and first pick of Day 2 was:

    SS Eric Eymann. Kansas St. University.


    Eric Eymann: Large frame. Lean, rangy body. Occasional line drive alley power. Arm strength near avg. enough for routine play. Proper techniques for defensive infield actions. Will catch the ball. Aggressive, competitive makeup.

    .303/.358/.460 4 homeruns 39 RBI 13 BB 5 for 7 in stolen bases

    I'm really liking 15th rounder Michael DeJesus. Teamone has him ranked as the 9th best high school 2ndbaseman in the country.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Kid has a form of ADD, and it is the Advisor's JOB to make sure he gets the required credits so he remains elligible. He was going to have a tough time in school regardless. On the mound he was regarded as the Longhorns ace. The same Longhorns heading to the Super Regionals to face #5 Mississippi.

    This was a smart pick. In fact I think it was sneaky smart.

    How very Bowden-like.

    That was my initial thought too. But I guess if you're an athlete, you shouldn't have any personal responsiblity Funny how all the other athletes at that school didn't have a problem.

    Well, let's hope he pans out for the Reds.

    With all due respect, faulty advisors have tons of students to "advise". If the kid can't even keep track of what classes he needs to take to stay eligible, he doesn't belong in college. It's highly possible that he dropped or flunked a class and fell behind.

    See the part where he has ADD. See the part where his parents considered suing.

    A mistake was made, and added to that he was likely struggling in school due to ADD.

    The part I like is where he was considered the staff ace at a pretty good baseball school.
