    Yeah, after seeing LaMarre's K/BB ratio I'm not as thrilled with the pick. I'm still ticked the A's drafted Cabrera two picks ahead of the Reds.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    It looks like he had an injury this season. 26/33 K/BB ratio last year is a bit better.

    K/BB ratio is more encouraging for his three years at M. 81/49

    Last year his K/BB ratio was much better. You fix the K/BB problem and you probably have a top 15 talent for the price of a second rounder.

    He started mostly in LF, only 6 games in CF. I don't know about the glove, but the RH bat with power bat looks good. Our low minor leagues can use the bat.

    His Jr. year and prep numbers show lots of power. His thumb injury set him back a bit this season (18 games). He has base stealing speed, as he pinch ran some during the injury and stole bases.

    Not seeing the plus speed in LaMarre anywhere. See that he has solid speed all over the place.

    OMG, did we pop our shoulders out of socket with that reach? Yuck. Really wanted the kid that went two spots before us. I bet the Reds did too and panicked. No one had this kid projected as a second-round pick. Total reach IMO.

    Is it time for Mesoraco to hand over the title of Thumbs?

    Really? I'm seeing him projected around the mid to late 30's.

    Just checked...BA had him 31.
    Chapman to the rotation!!!! Do it already!!!!

    You are correct, BA projected him in the 1st.
