    Re: 2009 Reds draft signings

    This will be settled in the new CBA- whether its a mandatory slotting system or some kind of a rookie cap, it will be settled- trust me.

    In terms of an international draft, it's ironically some of the small-market teams that are preventing that from happening. For instance, the Pirates have recently completed a very expensive, state-of-the-art facility in the Dominican Republic fully staffed with scouts and everything else you can imagine. After spending all that money down there, they have put up a stink about the possibility of an international draft. Sounds short-sighted I know, but it's a sad reality nonetheless.

    I think that is who it is. He's from a small town near where I live and he's supposedly ready and willing to start rookie ball.

    Nothing for awhile

    Seems we are close with Boxberger and Leake and from all indications, the commissioner's office is holding up Barnhart for some reason. I suspec these 3 will get done eventually and that will be it. I don't see anyone else signing, unless we just make a big offer out of the blue.

    I wasn't sure where to ask this but this seemed like the best place. I have the impression that the Reds drafted more relievers than starting pitchers. Am I wrong? How many of each did they draft exactly?

    I came here to post this. As a fan of both, I hope he pitches better for the Reds than he did for the Bulldogs. He regressed each year he was here.

    What's the story with Barnhart? Is he signed/going to sign or not?

    He says he will. He has to wait for his deal to get approved.

    Re: 2009 Reds draft signings

    If I remember correctly, the Canadian kids usually sign after their summer baseball season. I think that was the case with Lotzkar and Hildebrandt anyway.

    Mike Monster is still pitching for his summer team, the Langley Blaze, but it looks like their season is winding down. Maybe he'll sign soon too.

    http://www.bclocalnews.com/surrey_ar.../51896772.html

    Mike Monster earned the win on the mound for Langley, pitching four solid innings. He was replaced in the fifth, with his team up 8-3, by Alex Reid, who came on with two runners on board and just one out in the fifth.

    I am rooting for Monster to sign. The possibility of his trotting in from the bull pen while stadium speakers blare the monster mash as the Reds position players twist zombie like is .....perhaps one of the few things left to live for as a Reds fan.

    The best part is, all of his are Monster seasons.

    Can you summarize what this says? The firewall at work is blocking it. Thanks.
