Would be a good choice, in my opinion.That gets back to Matt LaPorta. He's a college senior AND a Boras client. That's a fascinating mix.

The Reds seem to be turning the corner as far as their Farm system. Dan O'Brien did a nice job of adding pitching depth. Wayne Krivsky leaned toward college players in '06. What's you guess for '07? Catching is a weakness in their system.
In January I had the Reds taking Chatsworth High 3B Matt Dominguez. Then I went with Jason Heyward in my April projection. I still think they’re going to go with a prep hitter, but they’re in no man’s land for catchers at #15. Wieters won’t get to them (if he does and they pass, they’re fools) and it’s too early for Mitch Canham, Devin Mesoraco or Yasmani Grandal. I can see them reaching for Mesoraco, but right now Houston prep 3B Kevin Ahrens is being mentioned as Cincinnati’s guy most often. Both Heyward and Dominguez are still possibilities as well.
