    If you were the Reds what would you been willing to give up to get that #1 pick this year?
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...

    That would be great.

    Baseball (and guys like Bud Selig) have no insight, whatsoever. It's really hard for them to think outside-the-box.

    Indians take Drew Pomeranz. So much for him sliding.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    With Arizona picking now, here's where McGuire most likely goes. If not, he could fall and be an option for the REDS when they pick.

    Not me. After watching him throw in slow motion, he just looks like an injury waiting to happen. That elbow gets way too much hyperabuction going as he is loading. Not quite Kyle Lotzkar bad, but still, pretty bad.

    The Diamondbacks board is furious over the pick. They wanted Sale.

    I still can't get over how lucky the Nats were to suck at the perfect time. Strasburg and Harper in back-to-back years? Knowing that, just think that the Padres took Matt Bush with their #1 overall pick years back.
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    Wasn't Bryan Bullington also selected #1 by PIT 6-7 years back?

    The Nats certainly have struck it rich.
