    Yonder Alonso

    Any news on him now that Miami has been eliminated from the College World Series? Any chance he could sign soon and report to one of our minor league affiliates?

    He did put that rumor down right around the time of the draft. It will be interesting to see what happens with Yonder though now. I hope we can get him signed for something somewhat reasonable. Dude can flat out hit! I saw him a couple times during the CWS and he's a fantastic hitter and not bad at first base either. He looked good the times I saw him play.

    We'll get Yonder signed. Let not your heart be troubled.

    Still wish we'd have taken Gordon Beckham but Yonder was probably the best, most polished hitter in the draft.

    while i don't agree with everyone ripping dusty, i do see a vast difference in that, and in seeing humor in the reds not being able to sign a high draft pick.
