    I don't know why you have that impression. The Reds went into this spring with X amount of dollars set for the international side of things and X amount of dollars for the draft. The draft also took place well before they knew they were going to get Valor. They took those guys hoping to sign them and at the same time they were certainly talking to Valor about signing him.

    Watch, you'll see...

    I'll be shocked if either one signs. Not saying it's impossible, just saying I'll be very surprised.
    Go BLUE!!!

    Lets say they don't sign.... you won't have any clue the reason for them not signing and odds are it will have nothing to do with Valor and a lot more to do with what they wanted.

    You don't have any idea what I have a clue about. Once again you're over-stepping your bounds. Let's just leave it at that.

    Are you suggesting you have insider information? If so, then you shouldn't say things like 'I think' this or that, but rather I have heard or I know this or that. Otherwise, you are pretty much just basing an opinion off of what you want to believe.

    I think Doug meant the "you" in his statement as a general one, not as one targeted at you, Beni. No need to take it personally

    Re: 2009 Reds draft signings

    Hey guys sorry to post this here but no privlages to start a new thread. Tell me who to look for in the 2010 draft. I love this team to death but I see a free fall coming with the net result being yet another top 10 draft pick. If I'm out of place sorry, I figure the mods will delete it anyway.

    Here's an earlier thread about next year's draft.

    Tucker Barnhart

    I posted on here a couple of weeks ago about talking with a friend of his family's and they stated Barnhart was waiting on clearance from the Commissioner's office to get going.

    Anywho, since I hadn't seen anything in print, I did a little searching and found a couple articles that sure do indicate he's signing, especially with his HS coach saying he's going to start out in the GCL. Anyway, they are both pretty good reads (especially the ESPN Rise article).

    If you're including undrafted free agents, the Reds signed John Dao, the SS out of the University of Louisville. He's been with Billings for about 10 days.

    Didn't you say the same exact thing about Mitchell Clarke? I'm not trying to call you out, but IIRC you said you spoke to a friend of Clark's family as well that said he had signed but was awaiting commissioner approval?

    No I gave the link Clarke signed, but

    I didn't say that I talked with a friend about him, just Barnhart.

    Take it for what it's all worth, but hopefully, that paperwork will get through quickly and get him going to GCL for the rest of the summer.
