    He is really being talked up on ESPN tonight and he has had a good game both defensively and offensively. I don't recall much talk on these boards about him being a possible Reds' selection. Seems to me he'd be a better fit for our organization than Alonzo from Mia. Any of you think the Reds should have selected Castro?

    No. Castro was more like a 17-25 type talent as opposed to top ten.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    OK, why? What kept him from the top ten? Obviously the Astros didn't consider him a 17-25 type

    Pretty much everyone considered Castro at #10 as a reach. He doesn't have any huge tools and this year was the first year he's hit well while at Stanford. He's a nice player but not top ten caliber.

    Go take a quick peek at the Astros farm system. Is that a team you really want to use as a model for draft slotting?

    I think a lot of the disapproval of the pick came from the Reds picking Alonso over Smoak.
