    Wow, imagine if Soto can help him along with that change. 3 nasty pitches? Yes please

    Goldstein at BP said in chat that he's got a killer sinker, but that's it.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I saw a fairly nasty slider in his scouting video.

    With looks like those, he must be pullin' some serious shorties.

    Seriously. This is one ugly cuss.

    I wonder if they keep him as a pitcher or move him to 3B. It doesn't seem like he is that great of a pitcher.
    Opinions are like belly buttons. Everybody has one, and they don't want someone else's shoved into their face.

    Says he plays catcher too, he looks too big for a 3b. 6'3 215...ehh doesn't look athletic at all either.

    I love the Zach Stewart pick as well. More than makes up for not having a second-round pick. Stewart was projected even better than a second-rounder (supplemental first as someone already said... No. 46 overall... and we got him all the way at 84... very, very nice).

    Didn't mean for that to rhyme. Those are just ridiculous numbers.
    Pray he continues to swing the stick, because the bottom can fall out from under this pick faster than you can possibly imagine.

    At least Stubbs had defense and speed to fall back on when his transition to wood didn't go so well -- this guy has absolutely nothing. And, while you're on the subject, pray that he doesn't get to Ortiz/Pronk levels defensively, because there's no DH for him to fall back to.

    I'm going on record -- 06/05/08 -- as despising this pick.

    I don't despise it but close, I just cannot see past passing on Beckham.

    Aw heck I just have to go on record then as loving this pick. Just to be cantankerous. But also because I really do. I like the Reds entire draft so far although I'm giving the Reds scouts a big, big dose of trust for the Cline pick.
