    Worth A Look
    6:25 p.m.: There obviously aren't any sure things in the 15th round, but the Reds picked up a prospect with a lot of potential. Rafael Sanchez, a third baseman from Queensborough CC, has plus raw power and a strong arm, but he is very raw and might not have enough agility for third base. He has good upside, though, for a 15th-rounder.
    -- Aaron Fitt
    Sophomores Slide
    7:06 p.m.: A disappointing end to Nebraska's season continued today, as both of the Huskers sophomore-eligible draft candidates fell hard. Southpaw Tony Watson spent time this season being considered as a potential top-three rounder, but instead, he slid to pick 505 in the 17th round. His teammate, shortstop Ryan Wehrle, went 29 picks later, picked by the Reds. Given each player's draft day fall, there's a pretty good chance they could return to Lincoln this fall.

    Wow that is good to hear. Sanchez sounds similar to EE besides the agility part.

    Justin Reed, hopefully we can sign him because I love speedy outfielders.

    Here is more good info.

    Q: mike jo from memphis asks:
    reds fan big day im pumped who the reds gonna get will kershaw or morrow fall that far nope an outfielder i know baseball america got this one but as bad as reds need pitching but i cant disagree to much with wayne krivsky so my question what do you think at first glance of reds picks and quick rating against other teams(upper,middle of pack,bottom)did they sign milton loo thank s for youre time go baseball

    A: John Manuel: Mike, I'll clean up your question at a later date. First, the Reds did sign Loo for around $220k. Loo hit three homers at the NJCAA World Series and was cleared medically on his elbow injury, so the Reds signed him. I'm a fan as I believe I have conveyed. Drew Stubbs is an exciting, exciting player, and one hard to pass up. Sean Watson could move quickly, as could Chris Valaika, a nice find in the third round. They got nice power arms later, with Josh Ravin, Jordan Smith, Travis Webb and Josh Roenicke. Those last three are probably relievers, but they have power arms.

    He's rated a 60 on the 20-80 scale for speed. The guy who went first in the 4th round was an 80.

    11th round pick Logan Parker 1B

    http://ucbearcats.cstv.com/sports/m-...r_logan00.html

    He showed marked improvement in 2006.

    CINCINNATI, Ohio---University of Cincinnati senior first baseman Logan Parker has added his name to a lengthy list of Bearcat draftees as the Cincinnati Reds used a 12th round selection to grab the Odessa, Texas native during the opening day of the Major League Baseball First-Year Draft on Tuesday.

    Parker becomes the 11th player under current head coach Brian Cleary to get a call on draft day and the 34th Bearcat since 1965 to be drafted. The Reds selected Parker with the 354th overall pick. The selection of Parker marks the second straight year at least one Cincinnati player has been drafted, following in the footsteps of Mark Haske (23rd round, Detroit Tigers) and Josh Kay (31st round, Oakland A's) last season. Parker is also the highest drafted Bearcat since current Boston Red Sox first baseman Kevin Youkilis was taken in the eighth round of the 2001 draft.

    Parker enjoyed an incredible senior season for UC, capping it off with a third team All-BIG EAST selection. He finished the year hitting .344 and ranked among the conference leaders with 11 home runs, 69 RBI, 61 runs scored, 18 doubles and seven triples. Parker helped the Bearcats to a 32-26 overall record and a spot in the BIG EAST tournament, marking UC's first post-season appearance since 2001.

    Looks like he used to play in the field a lot and only later focused on pitching.

    Five saves with 3.19 ERA. K/9 and K/BB ratios not strong.

    Here is a link for Washington State reliever Travis Webb.

    http://wsucougars.cstv.com/sports/m-..._travis00.html

    PULLMAN, Wash - Washington State junior pitcher Travis Webb, selected by the Cincinnati Reds in the eighth round, was the first of three Cougars picked during the opening day of the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, Tuesday. In addition, senior outfielder Jay Miller was taken in the 17th round by the Philadelphia Phillies while the Texas Rangers selected junior pitcher Mike Wagner in the18th round.


    Webb, a left-handed pitcher from Spokane, Wash., was the 234th player taken in the draft after posting a 4-0 record with eight saves and a 2.17 ERA this past season. His saves total was tied for second on WSU's single-season list and third in the Pacific-10 Conference. Opponents hit just .215 against him this season as he picked up conference saves against Stanford, UCLA, USC and Washington.

    "Most people don't know who a whole lot of these players are," Buckley said. "They don't know who we picked in the seventh, eighth round. They're not seeing these players on television. We've spent a lot of time. We had regional meetings, and our scouts did a very good job tracking them down."


    sounds like they have been reading redzone.

    Re: 2006 Official Reds Draft Selections

    Reds take '5-tool' star in draft
    Texas outfielder Stubbs a finalist for college baseball's top award.
    By Mark Gokavi

    Staff Writer

    Scouts refer to Drew Stubbs as sort of a baseball Superman.

    The University of Texas center fielder can do it all, but has a weakness — the K, and not as in Kryptonite.

    The Cincinnati Reds made Stubbs, 21, the No. 8 pick in the first round in Major League Baseball's first-year player draft Tuesday.

    In passing on a pitcher, the Reds fall into the camp of those enamored with Stubbs' athleticism and "five-tool" skills.

    "I think I've been their target for a number of months now," Stubbs said on a conference call. "I can't really speak for the organization of what their needs are."

    Baseball America lists Stubbs as the college game's best athlete and in the top three in power, base running, arm strength and defense.

    The 6-foot-4, 200-pound speedy right-hander hit .320 with 31 home runs, 148 RBIs and 84 stolen bases in three seasons at Texas, the 2005 national champion. Stubbs is Texas' career leader in strikeouts (206 in 205 games).

    "They'll decrease with time," he said. "I don't consider myself a guy that's one of those big power hitters that's either going to hit a home run or strike out. I think I'm more of a balanced hitter that can hit for average and do things like that."

    A finalist for college baseball's Golden Spikes Award, Stubbs was a standout in baseball, football, track and basketball at Atlanta (Texas) High School.

    The class salutatorian, Stubbs was in the National Honor Society, Calculus Club, Spanish Club and the Young Republicans.

    Originally selected by Houston in the third round of the 2003 draft, Stubbs couldn't agree on a contract with the Astros.

    Stubbs said a deal is basically already worked out with a club that likes Texan outfielders.

    "I really like the things that Cincinnati has been doing with their organization," he said. "I'm excited to be a Red."

    Esquer Taken By Reds In MLB Draft


    6/7/2006

    POMONA ¾ Cal Poly Pomona’s Anthony Esquer (Sr., Chino Hills, Whittier Christian HS) got the news he was hoping for Wednesday during the second day of the Major League Baseball draft.

    Esquer was selected in the 24th round with the 714th overall pick by the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday and he got the news in unusual fashion. He was driving a truck for a construction company when he got the word.

    “I didn’t have a final today so I went to work. I was driving a big truck and I got a call from a buddy and he was screaming, ‘the Reds,’” Esquer said. “He called me right when it happened and then I got calls from my mom, my dad, my grandparents, Coach Ashman. This is a dream come true. You always want to have a chance to play professional baseball.”

    Esquer had a sensational senior year to complete his Cal Poly Pomona career. He earned first-team All-West Region and All-California Collegiate Athletic Association honors. He hit .371, which was the highest average among all West Region catchers. He also shared the team lead in home runs with seven and led the Broncos with 42 runs batted in. Esquer also scored 34 runs and had a team-high 66 hits.

    “He has a chance because he can catch and throw and he’s become a very good hitter,” Cal Poly Pomona Head Coach Mike Ashman said. “It wouldn’t surprise me to see him playing for a long time in professional baseball.”

    Esquer showed great improvement throughout his Cal Poly Pomona career. He hit .211 as a freshman while appearing in 22 games. As a sophomore, he appeared in 34 games, all starts, and hit .290 with one home run and 15 RBI. As a junior, he appeared in 48 games and started 45 times and hit .340 with two home runs and 25 RBI.

    He had career highs in every statistical category as a senior.

    Gressick, Witt Taken in MLB Draft

    Gressick taken by Reds, Witt goes to Tigers


    June 7, 2006

    NEW YORK CITY - Ohio baseball senior pitchers Anthony Gressick and Derek Witt have been selected in the 2006 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft. Gressick was taken in the 26th Round by the Cincinnati Reds while Witt was selected in the 28th Round by the Detroit Tigers.

    Gressick, a native of Lancaster, Ohio, was drafted as a pitcher by the Reds as the 774th overall selection in the 2006 Draft. A right-handed hurler, Gressick was a standout at the plate as well as on the hill for the Bobcats during his recently-completed four year career. As a pitcher, Gressick recorded a career 4.09 ERA in 21 starts and 37 appearances with a 10-6 record. He led the Mid-American Conference with a 2.76 ERA as a junior in 2005 when he limited opponents to a .268 batting average and recorded two complete games. As a senior this past season Gressick finished 4-1 with a 4.47 ERA and recorded 49 strikeouts in 54 1-3 innings pitched.

    A 2006 All-MAC selection as a designated hitter, Gressick finished his career at the plate ranked third on Ohio's all-time list with 36 home runs, fourth with 384 total bases, fifth with 44 doubles, sixth with 228 hits and sixth with 157 RBIs. After leading Ohio in eight-different offensive categories in 2006, he became the first Bobcat since 1979 to earn three-straight All-MAC First Team selections
    .

    Witt, a pitcher from Powell, Ohio, was taken as the 832nd overall pick in 2006 Draft. The right-hander was the workhorse of the Ohio staff in each of the past two seasons when he led the Bobcats in innings pitched with 92 and 91 2-3, respectively, during his junior and senior campaigns. He went 12-8 as the team's lead starter in the weekend rotation the past two years and compiled a 3.98 ERA in 26 starts and 46 appearances during his four-year career. Exhibiting exceptional control, Witt finished his career with 182 strikeouts against just 63 walks.

Each person may have only one user account. It is fine to be critical here - that's what this board is for. But let's not beat a subject or a player to death, please.

Thank you, and most importantly, enjoy yourselves!
