    Hence, showing the "wisdom" of KC waiting until this close to the draft to fire Baird. They knew they had the first pick in the draft, his job obviously was in jeopardy, and they are paying him whether they fire him after last season or in the middle of this one. Now, they've wasted an offseason and potentially the 1st pick in the draft to indecision because of a regime change right before the draft. Just an idiotic way to do business, if you ask me.

    yea, but as much as id want them to take him, you can set bar as high as he thinks he is gonna set it. think about the next time a upton or prior comes through. they will be asking for 10-12 million

    I really feel the Reds NEED to take Joba Chamberlain with the 8th pick.

    That way, if he makes it to the majors we can post stuff like "If you no help me now Joba, I say {expletive} you. I do it myself"

    I'm hoping that you'll be able to go to another board and say that personally.

    Apparently Hochevar does appear to be the 1st guy off the board, with Miller dropping to picks 11-13 somewhere. And somehow we still select Stubbs? I don't like it, we need pitching. However what's really surprising from this piece is that Chamberlain has fallen out of the 1st round alltogether!

    As the mod of this forum, I'm happy to announce that I have banned you for 24 hrs. Sorry you'll miss the draft.

    There's always day 2 of the draft....unless you want to continue your name calling.

    joba has injury concerns, i wouldnt go near him

    on a BIG NOTE. the dodgers may be taking brian morris at 7, they want him and think he wont make it to their 26th pick. that would be big. like i said yest, we need a few off the board picks ahead of us

    I would grab Miller at number 8 if he is available. I would be estatic to draft Joba Chamberlain in the second round.
