    And the Wood part was about the second guessing all day of his pick. I don't know if you were around at that point, but Wood was ripped from here to there on this site as a HORRIBLE pick.

    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.

    I wasnt around then, but Travis Wood was 1 pick, I think a lot of people are questioning nearly all of the picks...

    I don't see many people questioning Stubbs. They seem to be questioning anything not a college pitcher. I guess that's something I don't quite understand.

    OK, well then maybe its me. I am questioning nearly every pick they made in the first 3 rounds, then nearly all rounds after round 5.

    Free agent league average pitchers cost more than free agent league average CFs?

    I will admit that I was shocked by the Travis Wood pick last year and he has obviously been awesome so far. But let's not deem him a total success yet. He's still in single A.

    Watch when the signings start. Watch when all of these picks get les than the other picks around them. Then you'll see what was on their minds during the draft.

    Let me ask you this...how would you feel if the Reds had this draft:

    1) Take your pick, but we can talk about Lincecum, Max, Drabek or Bard over Stubbs.

    2) Brett Anderson over Watson (who, by the way, looks about 275 lbs in his pics)

    3) Britton, Buck or Chad Tracy over Valaika

    Those three picks could have molded this draft and afterwards they could have went with more projects/signable guys. And the rest of the draft was littered with players (Walden, LaPorta, Betances, Belt, Melancon) who have more upside than some of these other picks. It just makes me sick. I thought this year was different.

    And I'm not saying people shouldn't complain about picks, just that a MLB draft is incredibly volatile. You just don't know at this point.

    no you dont, but id rather take my chances on a pitcher who is 21 and throws 95-98 on making it than a college cf with major questions about his bat
