    Pretty much all the experts think we'll pass him up. I hope you're right.

    Gibson may fall to us now, and that's a very, very good thing.

    I thought Gibson was injured... ?

    Only thing the NFL needs to take away from the MLB draft is the 5 minutes between picks. Probably hard to do with trading and the such, but 3 picks in less than 15 minutes is very nice.

    Gibson is not on the Reds' first-round board due to injury.

    Just in case here's a White Summary:

    6-3 200 Lbs
    Summary: White, one of the younger college pitchers in this class, sat 88-92 mph in a mid-May look against Boston College, although he more typically sits 91-93 and will run it up to 95, with good tailing life on the pitch. The biggest knock on White is that he throws a ton of off-speed pitches instead of pitching off his fastball, and that's going to be the first adjustment a player development department asks him to make. His slider can be plus at times; it's long and sharp and usually ends up out of the strike zone, so college hitters will chase it but pro hitters might not -- a problem that Andrew Miller, another UNC product, found when he got into pro ball. White also shows a splitter or split-change that has a chance to be plus. His delivery is funky and unclean, with a high elbow in back, a long path for his arm and more drift than drive toward the plate. He's an intelligent kid with some feel for pitching, and probably has a better-than-average chance to improve with instruction. He does have an outstanding track record, including a heroic showing in Omaha in 2008, but I see him as more of a mid-first-round talent than a top-of-draft guy.



    Player Grades
    PRESENT FUTURE LOW (MPH) HIGH (MPH)
    Fastball 55 60 88 95
    Slider 45 55 82 86
    Splitter 45 50
    FB Movement 55 55
    Command 45 50
    Control 50 50
    Feel for Pitching 45 50

    You'd take a chance on him with his injury at #8?

    I didn't hear about that. That must have happened in the 1st game of the playoffs (about two weeks ago), I imagine, as he was scheduled to pitch that night.
