    He should have taken advantage of his career 2007 season. Take a look at his 3 seasons:

    2006: .229, 3 HR, 15 RBI, .389 OBP/.362 SLG/.751 OPS
    2007: .398, 12 HR, 85 RBI, .487 OBP/.668 SLG/1.155 OPS
    2008: .260, 5 HR, 34 RBI, .391 OBP/.385 SLG/.776 OPS
    That sucks. He played summer ball with my brother all through middle and high school. He's a good kid from a great family.

    This is one of the most useful threads I've seen on this board. Thanks. For those of us who are interested by don't delve too deeply into who's out there, this is great.

    Watch for Anthony Rendon SS Lamar HS at pick 84 or 119.

    So according to another thread BP this guy's rising big-time and is a possibility for the Reds:

    80. Brett Lawrie SS BritColumbia HS, R/R 6-0 190 trains with Russ Martin in off season Scouting Canadian players can sometimes be difficult because of the lack of opportunity to see them. But scouts know all about Lawrie and his plus power potential, something he's been able to show off while playing for the Langley Blaze in British Columbia. What they don't know is where he can play, though he's shown the tools -- raw though they may be -- to handle being a catcher. It may take a while, but putting that bat behind the plate could one day make him a premium player.
    Interesting. Sounds as if he's quite a bit further away than, say, Gordon Beckham. Might be worth the reach, though.

    At this point with the Reds looking to contend in the next few years, I'd really like a college players like Alonso, Smoak, Matusz, or Crow.

    I agree with this. I'd really like one of the top college talents like a Matusz, Crow, Alonso, Smoak, or Beckham at No. 7 and then go for a big time HS talent at pick number 84. Adding one of those big college talents give the Reds yet another young player to build around for the next 5-10 years.

    33. Alex Meyer rhp Greensburg (Ind.) HS 6-7 200 ltr to UKy #5 prospect in
    all of HS At 6-foot-7, Meyer brings a unique appearance to the mound, and he generates velocity and plane on his pitches thanks to the leverage of his delivery and his plus arm strength. He has been up to 95 mph with his fastball, and his two-plane curveball grades as a legitimate plus offering. Meyer was dominant in a two-inning stint at Perfect Game's National Showcase in Cincinnati, and was ranked by Baseball America's Prospects Plus as the No. 2 prospect in attendance, behind only fellow-West righthander Tim Melville. He also pitched well at the World Wood Bat Association 17-and-under summer championship with the Indiana Bulls travel team, and ranked among the top prospects at that event

    I haven't seen Meyer pitch, but one of the umpires I work with has over 30 plus years umpiring and he told me Meyer has the best curveball he has ever seen at the high school level.

    The problem is Scott Boras is his agent.
