Looks like we won't know anything on Mugarian for another couple of weeks at the earliest
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...
I don't think it is ever worth getting upset about a pick after the 30th round. JMO.
It's like getting really angry about an NFL pick in the 7th round.
But I don't disagree with you. Curious, to say the least.
If you follow the draft closely, you know that "nepotism" picks happen. Last year, Jocketty's kid got taken by the Cubs somewhere in the 40s. It just so happens that Harford's dad is a scout for the Cubs.It does because it simply doesn't make sense.

Hell the Braves drafted Schuerholz's kid in like the 7th round out of Auburn and that kid, while a starter in college, had ZERO potential as a professional player.
It's a bit of bummer to see this thread with new posts so regularly when in fact, there isn't any news.
I've been guilty of it too (especially as I am posting this!) but it would be nice to limit the discussion unless someone has actually been signed.
Maybe they want to get him signed before they can make a decision on whether to include Mesoraco in a trade for pitching?The Reds have made initial contact with the agents representing top pick Yasmani Grandal.
“We’ve exchanged some emails,” Walt Jocketty said. “We’ll probably talk next week. We wanted to give him some time.”
Grandal’s University of Miami team was eliminated from NCAA Tournament. The deadline for draftees to sign is Aug. 16. Yonder Alonso went up to minutes of the deadline in 2008. Mike Leake signed on the deadline day last year as well.
