    exactly. one of those guys with a great potential, but will he ever fulfill it. we'll see. i'm happy with our current selection

    looks like a scrappy little player with a wicked approach to hitting, but he gets it done. i remember watching him this spring training when i took my son to a backfields in Sarasota before a Reds game. he stuck out in my mind cause it looks like he's got a million hitches, but he makes contact and can fly.

The Twins reached in a budget minded selection. Ben Revere is doing well, but to sit here and exclaim how they missed on a average driven guy like Revere is a bit too much.
    I wasn't trying to put any blame on the organization for not picking him. It was more of a rhetorical question. Traditionally, a local superstar has been drafted by the REDS. I got all the answers I was looking for as many here were well aware of what happended at the time. I had no idea.
