    But he's got good character, he's not a slacker like Jimminez. He sits on the bench.. doesn't need a message chair

    Pick 1112, Round 38

    Maiques is still on the board, BTW.

    C Jacob Long Modesto JC CA

    Another college catcher. We get your point, already!

    You like drafting multiple defensive minded catchers.

    St Louis just took Maiques in round 37. Pick 1130.

    If they can sign him, they just got the steal of the draft.

    It would have killed the Reds draft to take Maiques in the 37th round over a craptastic JUCO catcher (their 4th catcher taken in day 2).

    Pick 1142, Round 38

    We've drafted 4 college catchers so far. Haven't researched their stats yet.

    I do know that Rodriguez is decent with the bat from what I've read / seen here. Denove, as discussed, is horrid. Blumenthal plays in a church league that doesn't keep stats and no idea on Jacob Long.

    Before the draft he was talked about as having Round 1 talent.

    He has 3 plus pitches already, all power stuff. heavy 2 seam, 4 seam fastball that run to the low 90's and a good slider.

    I'm guessing that teams backed off because of signability concerns, but even teamonebaseball.com questions that:

    Can't figure why he goes this far down. One of the most talked about JC pitchers in this draft. Obviously signability became an issue, but why?

    He's a JUCO pitcher. How hard can they be to sign? I was hoping that the Reds would pick very talented players that fell in the draft. That's a great way to build up your system. DanO has been preaching "building through the draft" since he was hired. I've yet to see him truly dedicate himself to doing this. They take "signable" players, or very average talent players. If you want to "build the system" you have to give more effort than what has been done the past 2-3 years. Maiques, I viewed as a chance to do that. You could have basically been given a round 1-2 talent in the 37th round. You have to take a chance on guys like that if you want to "build" the system.

    Hate to pull the plug, but I'm going home.

    There's a break after round 40, so round 41 hasn't started yet.

    I'll try to post rounds 41-50 tomorrow if they haven't already been posted.

    Later.
