    Name your top 10 for the draft (who you want)

    you can exclude a player like miller if you feel there is 0 shot at him

    in no order

    Evan Longoria - 3B - Long Beach State
    Max Scherzer - SP - Missouri
    Joba Chamberlain - SP - Nebraska
    Clayton Kershaw - SP - High School
    Tim Lincecum - SP - Washington
    Brad Lincoln - SP - Houston
    Brandon Morrow - SP - California
    Daniel Bard - SP - North Carolina
    Bill Rowell - 3B - High School
    Drew Stubbs - CF - Texas

    I want a POWER arm. i want to get a sp with stuff from this draft. especially a college arm, and there should be one there when we draft.

    I dont think Longoria or Miller will be available for the Reds. I think they will be going 1-2. After that, I think strange things could happen. I think the Reds will be leaning with Bill Rowell unless someone who wasnt going to be available falls to them.

    First choice - Marrow
    Second choice - Scherzer

    I figure one of them will slip to #8.

    I would take a chance on Kershaw as well if he fell. However, I want the Reds to draft college arms in at least three of the first five rounds.

    after watching vid on scherzer, i dont know. it may have been an off day or something, but he was topping out at 89

    his velocity is down this year.

    I want one of these guys, and I think one of them will be there:

    Lincecum
    Marrow
    Lincoln
    Beato
    Bard

    do you remember what was said negatively about verlander leading up to the draft. it seems like it was the same types of things said about marrow and bard

    Defenitely see the parallels with each. I think it'd be a good risk. And its just another gut feeling, but w/marrow I think the command issues are overstated. Bard has some, but I still think he can get things straightened out. Much more confident about our abilities than ever now that Krivs is at the helm. More changes to come.

    all i know is we dont have guys walking around our organization who throw mid to high 90s thats why id be very dissapointed if we didnt take lincecum, bard, or marrow. i think at least 1 and maybe more of those 3 will be there.

    I agree completely. I would be super happy with Lincecum or Marrow. Both of their arms are just electric. Bard I would be happy with, but not as happy.. heh.

    The MLB Radio Around the Minors mock draft had the Reds taking high-school SS (likely a 3B) Bill Rowell. Just because he was invited into Cincinnati for a tryout.

    I, of course, want to see a college pitcher. Morrow is fine with me. Lincecum is scary, but he's likely a reliever. I want a starting pitcher.

    Why is Lincecum a reliever? Becuase he's 6 foot? I think the short right handed pitcher can't be a starter is a myth. This guy reminds me of Oswalt. His stuff is unbelievable and he's got great deception. He's never had an injury that I am aware of, and he's apparently never complained of soerness or any pain after starts.

    Just that I thought Longoria and Miller were the only two players who were going to be gone for sure when the Reds drafted. With everyone else, I think there are so many questions about who is interested in who and even who has this or that problem, the draft is wide open after those two are off the board.
