    Outside of Bruce and Ward, quite a atrocious act from Terry. Wonder if DanO still has "complete" faith in him?

    Took him.

    Jeremy Slayden just went a few picks after the Reds.

    How much you wanna bet that the Reds really wanted Andrew and screwed up the pick. Looking at Brandon's stats, I'm convinced that's what happened. If they truly wanted Brandon, they should just forfeit all remaining picks.
    If this turns out to be the truth, fans should not sleep until the entire FO is unemployed. It may be a coincidence, but it sure looks incriminating.

    Maiques, Havens, Smoak, Nick Weglarz still on the board. I would atleast take a chance on Havens or Smoak.

    DanO must've liked his "pitch to contact" mentality

    It would not suprise me at all if this is what happened. I believe each player had a number assigned to them and when the teams turned in the picks they had to look up the number and turn that in along with the name. It would pretty sad if they looked up the wrong number and messed up a draft pick.

    Somebody has to say it.........Brandon Roberts. He's scrappy.

    I can't find an Andrew Roberts on CSF.

    I can, however, find "Bobby (Robert) Andrews" on that team.

    He and Roberts appear to be nearly identical players.

    Reds 9th RD pick.

    Milton Loo, 3b/ss. They offered Loo 200,000 to sign as a D&F, and he turned it down.

    I know for a fact that some teams in recent years have done this. I remember reading about it after last year's draft, or the year before's. Some team took a player named like Michael A. Smith and they wanted Michael S. Smith.

    Still, just more proof that these guys need to get their crap together.

    This is a professional organization afterall, or its supposed to be.

    It's a good thing the Reds didn't draft "Bruce Jay" by mistake
    Never overlook the obvious

    He's most likely the name of someone's dog that O'Brien threw into the mix as a joke.

    Dan and Terry. Such pranksters!

    Unfortunately, I don't appreciate the prank they call the 2005 MLB entry draft.
