I read in two or three locations that Alonso was the #1 player on the reds draft board... if thats the case, I am ecstatic that the reds selected him.... I would have preferred Beckman but I am not a scout. I think Alonso is safe exceptional talent. He is that high power, high avg, high OBP guys we love here on RZ. I am kind of excited people rn't more pumped.
I think people get baseball and other sports confused. Drafting a guy never has an impact on the major league level at the time of the draft. You deal with that dillemma when the guy is ML ready. See Brewers and LaPorta last year.
I think the Reds still procede with signing Dunn to a 3 year contract
