    Re: Buckley added to scouts; Reiner leaves

    for a modern scout, great is what a player does when he's cheap-- the first 3-4 major league years.

    After that, performance is completely to the credit or fault of the the GM, as he's got to decide whether to pay or to deal
    Fair statement. Yet, I don't think it bears a whole lot on the HS vs college draft debate. Given that all players entering pro ball get 6 years in the minors before free agency, your HS player will hit that 3-4 year window in the majors at about 26-27 years old, if he's been promoted one-level-at-a-time. By that time, the organization will know all it needs to know (and the player will not have hit peak, unlike a college player, therefore making the player less expensive to keep, perhaps). The key is that the organization needs to have patience with high schoolers, but patience has gone fishin.

    Krivsky continued his front-office restructuring Thursday with another hire, installing Chris Buckley as senior director of scouting.

    Despite the catch-all title, Buckley's primary duty will be overseeing the Reds' amateur scouting department. Terry Reynolds, the Reds' director of amateur scouting the past two seasons, will retain his title but report to Buckley.

    "After the initial disappointment, Terry's handled it in a class way," Krivsky said. "I just felt like I wanted to tap into Chris and his network. Terry's been great, and he and Chris are going to work well together."

    Buckley joined the Chicago Cubs as a special assistant to the GM this January, but prior to that he spent nearly two decades in scouting with the Toronto Blue Jays. Starting as an area scout in 1989, Buckley moved up the ranks and became scouting director for Toronto in 2000. He was a special assistant to the GM in Toronto the past two seasons.

    "To me, he's got an innate ability to pick 'em and real good instincts about scouting," Krivsky said of Buckley.

    It sounds like M2 and Princeton will be getting their wish- Terry Reynolds edging towards the door.

    we don't just get a guy, we also get a whole network?

    it's like that commercial-- Reynolds is the guy with the dinky network, while hopefully this guy has the BIG network

    Buckley's drafts (Toronto, 2001-2003) have been college-heavy. Selections in rounds 1 and 2 have been very solid. He's come up dry in rounds 3 and beyond.
