    Mariners sign former Reds #1 draft pick

    http://www.heraldnet.com/stories/06/...msnotes001.cfm

    The Mariners signed minor league pitcher Mike Nannini and assigned him to Class AAA Tacoma. Nannini, a right-hander who was the Cincinnati Reds' first-round draft pick in 1998, was released by the Reds' Class AA Chattanooga team. To make room for Nannini, pitcher Mike Hrynio was transferred to the Everett AquaSox roster.

    I thought Kearns was the 1st round pick in '98.

    Astros bust, not ours. I knew that name did not sound familiar. Not too many 1st rounders not known either by playing or as a by-word around these parts, and that one did not ring a bell.

    Nannini had pitched 11.2 innings and had a .94 WHIP with 10 K's and 3 BB's.

    Why did he get released? Why sign him to begin with?

    I think there just wasn't much room. Nannini had already been bounced back and forth between Sarasota and Chattanooga.

    He's a solid org-soldier- puts up excellent K/BB ratios, but every other year he gets mauled. But I think he was a DanO pick and a DanO re-signing, too.

    Chad could run for mayor of Syracuse, NY and probably win..he is now a long time resident of the AA city of the Blue Jays.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    How many first round picks from 1998 were in our organization at one time?

    Off the top of my head I can think of (Kearns, Lopez, and Mike Nannini....)

    Can anyone think of anyone else?
