    Reds make final offer to Alonso...

    This is certainly concerning, when you're rebuilding you have to be able to sign your top draft picks imo.

    We gave pre-pubescent teens Juan Duran and Yorman Rodriguez $2 mil. each, then offered $5 mil. for 16 year old Michael Inoa. I'm glad they're looking to spend some money in the Dominican, but why must it be at the expense of our #1 draft pick. Alonso's supposed to be close to major league ready, those 2 kids certainly aren't. They knew what he was asking for going in, now get the deal done.

    I have a theory that says they didn't like anybody that was available, so they took the one guy they knew wouldn't sign, so they could get the pick again next year.
