    Yea Reds have no room on the 40 man to give Grandal a spot, especially opening up during the middle of the season. Maybe if they agree to a deal and add him in the offseason but it isnt happening any this season.

    I'm reading Waldrop signed for $500k per BBA tweet. Very nice!

    I can see that debate

    Grandal's Agent: We want a big league contract on the 40 man roster.
    Walt: Yeah um, no.
    Grandal's Agent: Why?
    Walt: We are cutting players as it is, in the middle of a playoff run. You aren't special.
    Grandal's Agent: That isn't my problem.
    Walt: If you don't want to send him back into the draft, it is.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    While I kind of agree, OTOH, I'd rather sign Grandal than worry about losing Danny Rae Herrera, Micah Owings or Enerio Del Rosario. My problem with giving him a 40 man spot is that it makes the timetable for a major league spot pretty quick and I'm not sure he'll be ready that quickly.

    Odds are, a Major League deal would mean that 2014 would be the last year he could be optioned. As polished as he supposedly is, it probably wouldn't be a big deal. Devin Mesoraco was about as raw as it gets, and it looks like he'll be ready by next year or so. Meanwhile Ryan Hanigan, Devin Mesoraco, and possibly Kevin Coddington are probably going to be the only in-house catching options on the 40-man roster in a couple years anyway.

    The Reds and 12th-round pick Kyle Waldrop have agreed to terms on a $500,000 bonus, the largest deal to date in the 2010 draft for a player drafted after the 10th round. Under MLB provisions for two-sport athletes, Cincinnati will spread the bonus over multiple years.

    That's what I'm thinking. In his case, the major league contract's not that big a deal--he'll likely be fast-tracked anyway.

    Re: Official 2010 Reds Signed Draft Picks Thread

    Just a reminder, the deadline is Monday August 16th. I saw one article from 8/5 that said only 12 of the 32 1st round draft picks had signed, the same number at the same time last year. Since then, Wimmers has signed with the Twins. Last year, all but three first rounders signed by the deadline. Of those three, Aaron Crow was signed last due to the fact he no more college eligibility. Matt Purke is now playing college ball and LeVon Washington ended up academically ineligible for NCAA play, went to a junior college and was drafted in the second round by the Indians.

    It really has become an annual kabuki dance between all four parties (MLB, teams, players & agents).

    I'd be fine if they don't sign Yaz, so long as they draft a real player next year with the Comp pick and not a pure signability guy.

    I do however, really want them to sign Cisco. Unfortunately I'd be surprised if it happens.

    This is my concern about NOT signing Grandal this year. At the same time though, it probably would give them the room to sign Cisco.

    Re: Official 2010 Reds Signed Draft Picks Thread

    The problem is, if they don't sign Grandal, and take a player next year that has any signability issues, he's got the Reds over the coals in terms that he knows the Reds will lose that pick and will be more likely to come to his terms than vice versa.

    As long as the Reds are offering a little over slot, or a fair deal per say, Grandal would be stupid not to sign. There's no garuntee that he'd be drafted any higher next year, and he'd have 0 leverage as a collegiate senior. If it takes a major league deal, so be it. Between Chapman, Bray & Rhodes, there shouldn't be any need for a lefty out of the pen this season. next year there has to be a better option than DRH on the free agent market to fill the Loogy spot next year (not that DRH was really any good at that this year)

    Brandon Dailey (34th round) and Dan Renken (25th round) are signed. I haven't found a link for Renken, but here's one for Dailey: http://www.cambridgetimes.ca/sports/...article/858199
