    Just read that Joba might have arm problems. One club has major red flags on him.

    Re: 2006 Official Reds Draft Thread

    Word out of KC is that the Royals have agreed to a contract with Brad Lincoln and will be taking him #1 overall.

    This is going to be a fun draft, especially with rumors swirling about Andrew Miller's contract demands (8 figures?!).

    Wow, thanks for the tidbit, Outshined. I wonder if this comes true tomorrow....there had been a lot of talk that the Royals weren't going to come to an agreement with Andrew Miller, so Lincoln would be a great first pick for them. I wonder where that'd leave Miller? Colorado has pick 2 but they are apparently really enamored with Evan Longoria, as is Tampa Bay. So it's safe to say that they will be picks 2 and 3, but a matter of who gets who. I like Morrow a lot for the Reds' pick, and can see it play out to where we get him, but I think a key is what the Pirates do at 4....they seem to really like Greg Reynolds of Stanford and could go for him there. Then Hochevar, Stubbs and Kershaw as the next three picks would let the Reds have their pick from Morrow, Lincecum or Bard. We'll find out soon enough!

    Jonathan Mayo came out at 4am Eastern today projecting that the Royals will take Hochevar:

    If Miller drops to the Reds, the Reds should NOT be thrown off if Miller's camp is threatening not to sign. He wants to pitch. I think the guy regrets going to college at all.

    Plus if I'm wrong, this is such a weak class this year, we'd likely get a supplemental pick next year, who's nearly as good as what's at #8 this year.

    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

    Excited about this years draft as well...let me ask you guys, "if" Miller were to fall to the Reds, would they take him and would you want them to?

    Re: 2006 Official MLB Draft Thread

    This will be the official draft thread. I edited the title because we'll keep track of all picks in this thread, not just the Reds picks. I have "stickied" it as well. Draft starts at 1PM. After the Reds first pick we can start a new thread listing just Reds players if you would like so people don't have to sort through what will likely be close to 100 pages of information to find out about players the Reds have drafted.

    Enjoy the draft.

    Channel 189 on XM will have coverage of the entire draft. Today starting at 1 and tomorrow at noon.

    MLB radio is also covering the whole draft. Also MLB.COM will have video coverage of the 1st round of the draft.

    Re: 2006 Official MLB Draft Thread

    I just mentioned this in another thread, but if somehow Miller drops to the Reds at #8, it will be a moment of truth for the franchise.

    Previous regimes would have had a zillion excuses for why they couldn't draft the best pitcher in the draft, the best young pitcher they might get their hands over the next decade. As a fan I've grown tired of can't-do. I want the Reds to be the best and to do that they need to figure out how to get the best.

    It's starting to look like the Castellini regime is about to be given a golden opportunity to prove its worth. If Andrew Miller's on the board at #8 we'll find out what the Reds think of themselves.
