Reds Fan Since 1971
The Reds shouldn't hope for a #1 pick. They couldn't afford him.
This link should be an easy way to track the standings.
Suddenly my Strasburg or Harper dreams are inching closer.
Of course, the Nats could botch all of this by signing Strasburg then still taking Harper with the No. 1 pick next season. But if not, then the Reds could climb to No. 2 and nab Strasburg, assuming he does not given permission to be drafted again by the Nats.

A "good" night as both Oakland and Baltimore won. Currently tied for the 5th pick.

Similar to my Beckham thoughts in the other thread, I just thought of something again.
Say Strasburg does not sign. Say he does not give permission to Washington to draft him again. Say the Reds finish 2nd to last. Say Washington takes Harper and someone else with their first two picks. Say the Reds are next up and........
They pass on Strasburg.
Would that be the straw that breaks the camel's back for many of you?
