    Lincecum doesn't have to be a reliever and it is rare that a pitcher will profile to have the best fastball and the best curveball in the draft. I don't care if he is only 6 feet tall hit stuff is off the charts, exactly the kind of pitcher the Reds DON'T have.

    I agree and Lincecum has shown great durability to date. The club might have a fear of short starters. I sure do everytime I see Roy Oswalt on the mound.

    Reds take Justin Reed in the 4th, essentially the HS version of Stubbs. Scouting report says: "Very athletic, with a football scholarship to Ole Miss. Speed is his best tool, though he's shown vast improvement with the bat and in CF." Ugh
    Go BLUE!!!

    Sounds like Branch Rickey pick

    Folks the Reds are trying their best to find the 21st century version of Harry Craft.
    BTW that scouting report sounds like Curt Floods.

    So far (including Loo) we have two defensive CF's with questionable bats, two SS's with questionable bats, and a closer with control problems. Only time will tell but color me unexcited (and I'm an optimist).
    Go BLUE!!!

    I am not happy about the choice either, but with that in mind Stubbs is now a red and I will cheer for him and support him, and pray he makes a great impact

    I know in MLB especially you don't draft for need, but how, in a pitching heavy draft [argue quality if you want] do you not draft a pitcher that projects to start in the bigs?

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Re: Discuss Reds 2006 Reds Draft picks here

    First off, I think we need to give a little more credit to WK. He knows what he is doing. You know drafting this year, has a big effect on how we draft next year too. Maybe he felt this was the time to get some defense.

    I think drafting Stubbs compares to drafting a pitcher because he is so good on D. Remember all the run/hits/doubles differential between when Griffey and Freel play CF. Stubbs will automatically help our pitching staff.

    Next years college arms should be a lot better, so he decided to go with some Offense and Defense this year. Why get mediocre arms when you can go full boar next year for pitching (atleast that would be my plan). I would have like lincecum as well, but I still dont mind the stubbs pick.

    If he can't hit it won't matter.

    WK has done some great things since being hired, so I will stay optimistic on the picks.

    The Reed pick reminds me of the Lewis pick a few years ago. Lewis is now playing football at Va Tech.

    These aren't Krivsky's picks.

    By all accounts, they are Buckley's.

    Info on Ravins:
    http://www.baseballamerica.com/today...0capsules.html
    13. Chatsworth (Calif.) HS (29-4)
    45
    Baseball America's No. 1 team in 2003 and 2004 is again well stocked with top-line pitching--senior RHP Josh Ravin (4-2, 2.50) is one of the top prep pitchers in the country--and a deep lineup including juniors Matt Dominguez (.416-10-49) and Mike Moustakas (.482-12-51).

    Nobody is ranked this high if they cant hit. I know that his hitting is a question mark, but only because he is a top 10 prospect. Say his fielding was mediocre, we would here how good his hitting is. He may field like a #1 draft pick, but he may hit like a 5th rounder. I think I'll take it.
