    Re: Official 2010 Reds Signed Draft Picks Thread

    This is one of the writers I emailed about some of our unsigned players, from the Charleston Post & Courier sports blog:

    The Cincinnati Reds have 17 days to sign Drew Cisco, or it's off to Athens and the University of Georgia for the talented right-handed pitcher who was a star at Wando for four years.

    "Not yet," Cisco said when asked if he was close to signing with the Reds, who took him in the sixth round. "It's hard to say if we will reach an agreement. We'll find out soon because the deadline is Aug. 14. It's taking a long time, but hopefully it will be worth it."

    Many baseball experts thought Cisco would be taken in the first two rounds, but signability was an issue. The St. Louis Cardinals were going to take Cisco as a supplemental first-round pick, but the sides couldn't agree on a signing bonus.

    Cisco has kept in touch with the Reds.

    "I went to a RiverDogs game with an area scout and I talked to the director of scouting a bunch," he said.

    I'd be very surprised if Cisco signs, which is unfortunate because he was the player I was most excited about after Grandal.
    Go BLUE!!!

    I wonder how much money Cisco wants. If it's not too crazy, the Reds should just pony up.

    Would be sweet to sign him after the Cards couldn't.

    I'm willing to wager that Grandal, Cisco and Waldrop signings are all announced between Aug 10-14

    I think you probably are right. Nothing in the piece indicated they were disagreeing with numbers (or that the Reds countered) which could indicate they're just waiting for the commissioner's office for approval. I wish they wouldn't drag this out, but I guess it's their only way to try to keep bonuses where they prefer.

    Just as a reference point, the Pirates haven't signed of their 10 of their first 13 picks this year. The Reds have signed 10 of their first 13 picks.

    Doing the complete opposite of the pirates is a winning game plan

    That is interesting. Check back in after the deadline and tell us how many actually ended up signing

    Cam, can you clarify what you're saying here? I think something's jumbled and I'm not catching the point.

    Thanks.

    The Pirates have signed only three of their first 13 picks, but the Reds have signed 10 of their first 13 picks. I'm just pointing out the contrast.

    Thanks, there was an extra word in there somewhere that was confusing me. The Bucs may well get more signed, as I think we will too. I'm tired of this issue of paying over slot problem requiring the commissioner's permission. We're getting players late into their seasons.

    Grandal update from Fay
    http://cincinnati.com/blogs/reds/201...smani-grandal/

    I also asked Walt Jocketty about top pick Yasmani Grandal.

    “We haven’t done much,” Jocketty said. “They told us how much money they wanted. That’s about it. It will come down to next week.”

    Just saw a tweet from BA (Jim Callis, I think) that the Reds signed Kyle Waldrop for $500,000- the highest bonus to date outside the top 10 rounds.

    That is great news. What round was Waldrop projected if not for the signability question?
