    I think you're probably right. Krivsky's MO looks to be "step by step". Let players go to the lowest level and succeed, then move them up. He doesn't seem to want to jump levels, believing that each level has its purpose. I can't say he's been 100% with that, but has anyone jumped to the big club from Chattanooga since he's been here?

    That's not to say some won't jump to Dayton by season's end. I think a few players did that last year, didn't they?

    Only time will tell, but I think that will ultimately be better for the Reds.

    I recall fondly the conflict I felt when the Reds drafted Jay Bruce, who was signed and sealed to Tulane if he went to college.

    Thanks. I think Waring was a good pick. Glad that he has signed.

    No, but thanks for the information. Just wanted to see his bio because I know his mom.

    What do you predict for him in the future

    I saw Klinker a few times in high school and the past few summers and followed his career at Furman a little. He had a pretty decent 4 years at Furman but I'm not too excited about his future as a pro. He had a 2.08 K/BB rate in 285 collegiate innings while giving up 303 H. I wish the kid the best of luck and hope he proves me wrong but I consider him a longshot to make much of an impact in this organization.

    Brandon Waring could be a steal IMO. Nice to him in the fold.

    Waring looks just like BJ Szymanski. I mean that in the positive way.
