    Well Washington has the top two spots locked up (they ain't gonna sign Strasburg). So we need to make up these 5 games and catch the Royals so we can land Strasburg or Harper.

    The Question is are the Reds going to sign their 1st round pick this year or will they have two picks in the top ten.

    If the Reds don't win again I think they have a good shot at the 1st pick

    The Reds have 12 games left with Pittsburgh so that head-to-head matchup will be key.

    Wrap the standings in the code tag [ code ] [ /code ] (with the brackets and without the spaces).

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Unfortunately, the Brewers just signed Corey Patterson. Signing him and playing him and Taveras everyday would have made up those 5 games easy.

    But I still have hope.

    Realistically I think we'll end up with the 3d to 5th picks next year so we should probably be starting to focus our discussion on what's going to be available there.

    They'd probably pull a Kazmir.

    All they need to do is get to #2 for Strasburg. I actually think Washington is prevented from drafting him again if he doesn't sign, so a #2 would guarantee us a shot at drafting him.

    Which would be #3 since Wash. will get #2 for not drafting Strasburg.

    I could be wrong, but I thought that the rule was the team couldn't use the same pick to draft the unsigned player. I.E., Washington can't use pick 1A to sign Strasburg (without his consent), but they could use the #1 overall pick. Then use 1A to draft Harper.

    Of course, after not signing him the first go around I'm not sure they'd even want to draft Strasburg again and risk losing the pick for good, but perhaps having a little extra leverage would change things.
