    Have at it. Looks like Beckham will likely be the pick.

    I was talking about Gordon Beckham to the Reds, but that works too.

    If I had to project the top 10:

    2.Pit-Pedro Alvarez
    3.KC-Eric Hosmer
    4.Bal-Brian Matusz
    5.SF-Buster Posey
    6.Fla-Kyle Skipworth
    7.Cin-Gordon Beckham
    8.CWS-Justin Smoak
    9.Was-Yonder Alonso
    10.Hou-Aaron Crow

    Yeah right, you just know Jimbo can't resist the 5 tool outfielder, zach collier is their man.

    Either that, or he goes w/ Juan Castro (C out of Standford). If he can't have all his former reds, at least he'll have some w/ the same names.



    seriously, that looks like a nice list, but it seems this draft is more up in the air regarding the top 10 than any in the last few years that I can remember. Probably a bit tough to project who will land where exactly.

    With Matusz off the board, if the Reds do select G. Beckham, that'll make my afternoon.

    I'm not a fan of fast risers...usually they were thought less of for a reason.
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg

    Jay Bruce waves hello to you. So does Clayton Kershaw.

    Hey guys, at the draft posting from up in stands. You guys will have better viewing than me but I wanted to experience it in person before they move it to NY ......
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    I am jealous. Apparently Aaron Hicks is the only player in attendance. A bunch of others turned down the invite.

    First, it's free. Selig must not know that. Parking free also. In a biulding called the Milk House. About the size of HS auditorium. It's got curtain diving the fllooe. Behind it appears to ne where prospects and friends will sit while waiting to be called.

    You are right/ So far only one player in players area. Behind the tema are 3 rows of tables for print media, and behind them the TV techs
