    Give me li'l Ramon Ramirez as pitcher. Must be good if he's better than Carlos Guevara...


    as an aside, Reds paid well above slot money to the following draftees: LHP Jamie Arneson, OF Tony Brown, RHP Jonathan Conatser, none of which have shown much. Yet.

    Personally, I'm a big fan of Conatser's. I expect him to break out some time within the next couple years.

    No one. The ones who are heralded might make it; the unheralded ones are for a reason.

    Actually I'd say that the unheralded ones make it more often than the highly heralded ones do. I may be wrong but I bet the #'s aren't that far apart.
