All right, 10 rounds in and a picture is starting to take shape. The Reds are now consistently taking college arms that weren't even all the coveted by their own colleges. So either the Reds scouts are seeing something others missed on a regular basis or the club might have just outsmarted itself.
Two other thoughts:
It will take some quality instruction to prevent this draft class from winnowing quickly (much like we've seen happen with the 2004 and 2002 classes).
Is Larry Barton Jr. still running the Cali/West Coast operation? If so, Buckley might have just thrown a lot eggs into a real suspect basket.
