    I want Drabek or Hochever. I haven't studied this draft much, but from my initial look that is who I want.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    I agree 100% completely.

    I can't see how the Reds would pass up Lincecum to get Stubbs. I just read somewhere that KC was strongly considering Stubbs at 1.

    From the KC Star...

    But, as we enter the last 24 hours before draft time, the signs say the Royals just might pass up Miller. They like him, of course. But some Royals push for Houston pitcher Brad Lincoln, who they say is more polished. Around baseball, rumors buzz that the Royals might work out a deal with Scott Boras client Luke Hochevar, a right-handed pitcher who was drafted by the Dodgers last year but sat out for more money.

    There are even late rumors that the Royals are considering Texas outfielder Drew Stubbs, a talented but exceedingly raw player.

    Don't get testy. I hope KC takes him. That way Cincy won't be able to make that mistake.

    How about Marrero? Where did he come from? He was top tier, then fell a long ways and now back to the top 15.

    He never performed up to expectations. There's plenty of worry about his ability to make consistent contact.

    Agreed, but I couldn't believe they had him at 13.

    Ahhhh...I misread your post. I believe they had the Cubs take him because the Cubs have had a thing for guys in HS who ooze tools...no matter their production. They tend to become enamored with power, as seen with guys like Brian Dopirak and Ryan Harvey. They also like guys who are really athletic, although not always.

    They have a new scouting director in Tim Wilken, so we'll see what route he takes. As a Cubs fan (*ducks*), I'm hoping he goes for Snider. The Cubs have a ton of position prospects in their system who strike out a ton as it is. Adding a guy like Marrero, Stubbs, Conger, or Rowell (whose height worries me in terms of his ability to hit inside pitches) would not do much to help that image.

    I can somehow envision the name Lincecum stitched on the back of a Reds uni. Dunno, just somehow fits.
