Interesting quote from Jerry Narron (from the Reds official site)

"Stuff-wise, he's probably got the best of anybody in our bullpen." -- Narron, on Rule 5 Draft pick Jared Burton, a 25-year-old right-hander
Are the Reds purposely raising Burton's stock for some reason (the only reason I can think of is to trade him ) or does he really have better stuff than Coffey and Bray???

I know others have speculated, but I'm more and more believing Krivsky knows Burton will be the PTBNL in the A's deal....otherwise they are making it fairly clear that he'll stick with the club...which by the way, I like a lot...I got to see him 3 times this spring and he was IMPRESSIVE
