    Re: 2009 International signing period

    Found a couple boxscores on Kepler after a quick Google search. One game he was 0-4, but reached on error once and stole second, went to third on error, and stole home. Other game had a couple hits including a HR, and single, after which he stole second and third. Seems pretty fast

    From Jorge Arangure:

    #Reds scouting director Chris Buckley is returning from trip to VZ to see top SS Humberto Valor. Cinci is considered one of the top suitors

    I'd say Valor is just about a lock to go to the Reds.

    VZ SS Humberto Valor is expected to get a bonus of around $1.5m-$2.2 m. Top suitors appear to be #Reds and #Braves.

    Didn't we once have a SS from VZ, that worked out pretty good.

    Hope it happens.

    Re: 2009 International signing period

    I'll be extremely happy if the Reds sign Humberto Valor and one of the following: RHP Christopher Cabrera (Dominican Republic), OF Jose Alberto Pena (Dominican Republic), or OF Max Kepler-Rozycki (Germany). I'll still be pleased if they only sign Valor but it sure would be nice to add another big prospect to go along with Valor.

    Re: 2009 International signing period

    Does the signing period start in about an hour, at midnight? Or is there a time on 7/1 that it can begin?

    Re: 2009 International signing period

    Sorry, I saw in the first post that the signing period starts on 7/2. Does it start at midnight? Should we expect a flood of signings right away, in the first couple hours of the night?

    Re: 2009 International signing period

    Here's who the Reds have been strongly linked to:

    -Venezuelan shortstop Humberto Valor - Reds and Braves are the finalists.

    -Dominican RHP Christopher Cabrera - Reds, Red Sox, Yankees, and Padres are finalists.

    -German OF Max Kepler-Rozycki - Reds, Red Sox, and Mets are considered the finalists.

    The Reds have also been mentioned with Dominican OFer Jose Alberto Pena, though he appears to be a longshot at this point.

    wow Cabrera must have come down on his price demands cuz from what I heard he want 2-3 million but i guess the economic times may have persuaded him but anyways I'd still offer him 1 million and sign Valor, Kepler and hell make a run for Pena as well

    You'd think we may have a real good shot, considering those other 3 are there and we're still in the running. He must really like something about us.

    Hopefully the Reds can sign him.
