    Thanks for lookin it up Doug. Watson would have been a better pick in a later round.

    I wouldn't say he's been a "steal" -- he appears to have an upside of a power bullpen arm. That's useful, but its hardly appropriate to say that the Reds somehow got lucky because someone didn't think it was worth a high-round pick on a guy that isn't going to start games.

    Furthermore, I don't get too excited about power bullpen arms who haven't shown the ability to retire major league hitters. Call me crazy, but I've seen too many Todd Coffeys, Brad Salmons, Ryan Wagners, etc. to start going crazy about a guy who is overpowering minor leaguers.
