    Both the Rangers & Angels have proven that having a number of good, young catchers in the system is no guarantee that any of them will pan out in the end.

    I would be happy with any of these guys with the 62nd overall pick:

    RHP Stetson Allie, OF Austin Wilson, SS Yordy Cabrera, RHP Brett Eibner, OF Jarrett Parker, RHP A.J. Cole, and RHP Brandon Workman. One of them should be available when the Reds pick. I have a feeling the Reds will pick Workman if he's still there.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    I want at least one of two honest-to-goodness corner OFers who have the mobility to field their position, but at the same time, have power that projects as middle of the order.

    Then again, I want solid middle infielders who are plus defenders, but at the same time have the on-base ability to legitimately hit at the top of a major league order and I probably ain't getting that either.
    Hey asking for All-Stars at every position isn't a bad thing. Until you have to pay them... LOL

    If you are a Baseball America Subscriber, they just posted their Reds/Grandal article

    http://www.baseballamerica.com/onlin...0/2610153.html

    Key quotes are that the Reds were certain Grandal was going to be gone at 12 until today, and Buckley talked up how tough it is to find catching and says Grandal is a well above average defensive catcher and a switch hitter with power from both sides of the plate.

    If the Reds somehow net Cabrera I'd be amazed but thrilled. He's a very similar type player to Billy Hamilton, a raw but gifted middle of the field guy with an almost unlimited ceiling.

    I know it's completely hypothetical, but I wonder who the Reds would have taken if Grandal had been off the board? And if McGuire had been available 1 pick later, if they would have taken him? Or if both guys had been off the board, would they have taken Wimmers? Or even Chance Ruffin??

    Kyle Parker to the Rockies in round 1?

    Why are Denver teams reaching on college QBs in the first round this year?
