    If we draft Beckham, how quickly could we see him in Cincinnati?

    They annouced Reds reps. I thnk they said it was Dick Williams.
    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 think he starts in Dayton. By the end of the summer, he'll skip Hi-A and go straight to AA-Chattanooga, with a shot to join the big club maybe late 2009 and definitely by April, 2010.

    That is, if he keeps hitting the cover off the ball.

    Jaxred will you give profiles on players that the Reds draft? Is RHP Brad Holt from UNC Wilmington listed? He is from my Alma Mata and in local newspaper he is listed as possible first round or sandwich pick. Catcher Mark Carver and 2b Daniel Hargrave and of Jason Appel are listed as possible drafteees. Are they listed in the MLB prospects handbook? Thanks for any info you can give Jaxred.

    I'll second this, I used it last year and it was updated quickly with detailed information about each pick.

    Which of the players that are being rumored to the Reds are the closest to the Majors? Let's say Posey, Crow, Beckham and Matusz.
