    I'd much rather have Gordon Beckham if Matsuz and Crow are off the board. I think I'd prefer Smoak to Alonso as well.

    BTW Baseball Prospectus will hold their mock draft tomorrow and I'm sure Baseball America will post another here soon.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Baseball America has had a pretty good read on the Reds the last couple drafts.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Any chance Hosmer falls to us? Having watched the Youtube films of kids' swings, I don't see we could pass on Hosmer if he's there.

    Alonso wouldn't be a bad pick but I prefer Justin Smoak if they are going to select a first baseman. Smoak is a better defender and is a switch-hitter who has been compared to Lance Berkman. Alonso is more of a Jim Thome clone with huge power to all fields and possibly the best plate discipline in the draft. You really can't go wrong with either one though, still, if Matusz is on the board at No. 7, you have to select him IMO. All this talk about drafting a first baseman leads me to believe the Reds may be leaning toward trading Dunn and moving Votto to left field.
    Alonso and Lawrie what do they have in common? They may be the 2 closest bats to the majors and can flat out rake and fill a position created by Dunn being gone. Alonso at 1B and Votto to LF or Lawrie or Votto to LF and the other at 1st. Couple that with the fact Dunn hasn't heard from the F.O. on a LTC and it's now June. I hate to say it but it's looking that way.
