    These were the Eight Reds draft and Follows. It appears that 3 of the 8 signed and we still have a shot to sign Loo.
    9 12 272 Milton Loo 3b Yavapai (Ariz.) CC AZ (Still playing 48 hour window)
    22 12 662 Robbie Nickols lhp Pima (Ariz.) CC AZ (signed)
    24 12 722 Kyle Ginley RHP St. Petersburg JC FL
    28 12 842 Henry-Judsen Smith rhp Phoenix JC AZ
    37 12 1112 Jacob Long C Modesto (Calif.) JC CA (signed)
    40 12 1201 Angel Cabrera SS Connors State (Okla.) JC OK (signed)
    43 12 1288 Clay Long rhp Chipola (Fla.) JC FL
    This gives the team a LHP, Catcher, and SS for the Rookie team before the draft starts. The team gets a chance for Loo as well.

    Loo is doing all of this with wooden bats, which makes him even more intriguing. He is proving he can hit with a wood bat, albeit against lesser competition. If Loo signs, and all signs are pointing that he will sign, where do want the Reds to play him? I'm hoping they put him at a middle infield spot, either SS or 2B.

    Keep him at SS until he proves that he doesn't have the range, arm, whatever. Stud SS is as rare as a stud SP and just as valuable.

The Reds reportedly offered the native Hawaiian - whom they also drafted but couldn't sign in 2004 - a $200,000 bonus last summer. He opted to return to Yavapai and ended up hitting .351 with 14 doubles, four triples and five homers while stealing 32 bases during the regular season.
    So once his season is over, would 250-300k get it done? Where is he ranked with other draft eligible players this year? Is he a top 3 round pick?

    I think it will take more. He's ranked the #64 talent in the draft by BA, so that puts his value at between $500,000 and $1,000,000 per last year's slot numbers. And Loo is solidifying his stock at the JUCO World Series these last few days.

    Well, if we don't sign him, we'll know that him solidifying his stock at the WS made him too expensive for us.

    If we sign him anyway, to me it will signal a change from how things were done in the past (cheap signability picks and punting 1st round picks).

    I'll just wait and see.

    Re: Draft-and-follow throws curve into plans

    With that said, if we do sign him, I'll still be watching for them to recoup the cost by punting a 2nd round or 3rd rounder by drafting a HS kid that is set on college.

    This will be an interesting couple of weeks. We'll soon see if the new ownership and GM are truly set on fixing this abortion of a farm system or just blowing smoke up our collective behinds.

    I'm guessing ~750K to sign Loo as he has done nothing to hurt himself and the Reds like him. WOuld the Reds really want to see him go back in the draft over ~250K like Markakis.
