    The Reds have to wait until slot #84 to make their second pick (the #53 pick goes to the Brewers for Coco Cordero). Kelly probably wouldn't drop to #53 anyway.

    Here's the official list of the picks in the first four rounds. Given that the Reds have a top pick and then a long wait, I'm hoping the franchise isn't afraid to go above slot value to get what it deems the top talent on the board.

    Agreed. And I hope that signability scares Alvarez or Smoak down to #7 (though I doubt it). Either Beckham, too.

    As for Casey Kelley his bat scares me. He sounds like an infield version of Drew Stubbs - very athletic toolsy HS kid with everything but questions about his bat. I'm sick of that - take the best bat and figure out where he'll fit defensively. If the Reds draft a position player I'm concerned with his bat first and foremost. The Reds are too adept at good glove no bat draft picks.
