    Well, if we needed pitching or shorstops, that's a good start...

    Am I correct that the GCL Reds will have Yorman and Duran as well? That's um, one heckuva an athletic team with Hamilton joining them...

    Unusual for Reds to send a sixth round pick to Dayton. Serrano.

    Maybe Fairel moves to Sarasota with Serrano going to Dayton?
    This will not change until the Reds win the World Series.......

    Wow, that's great that they have nine guys signed all ready! I'm also pleased that we got Hamilton signed so fast since that seemed to be one of the guys they took a chance on with regards to his status.

    Serrano threw 86 innings this year, up from 67 the year before. They should manage his innings pretty carefully.

    Don't forget Juan Silva, the toolsy Puerto Rican. He looked very good in his scouting video and was rated the top player in the Puerto Rico baseball academy (though Reymond Fuentes didn't attend). Other position players of note include Carter Morrison, the toolsy outfielder from Canada who signed late last year for an over-slot bonus; Anyelo Polanco, a SS from the DR who signed for $300,000 (he's not on the DSL Reds so I assume he'll play in the GCL); catcher Tucker Barnhart if he signs; and maybe Deven Marrero or Stephen Perez if one of them sign. That team is going to be interesting to follow.

    Yeah - could be the most interesting GCL team in a while -- by a mile.

    Wow, that's great. I thought Hamilton would sign anyway, but didn't realize it would be this quickly or easier. Any guess on what he got?

    Slot money is roughly $600-700,000.
