    $100 and a shirt that says Potential player to be named?
    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.

    He might make a minor league roster.

    This pick really has you up in arms doesn't it? I remember reading the draft day thread and you seemed besides yourself. Why would they take him with a pick earlier than the 50th if it was a favor? Seems really odd to me as well.
    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...

    It does because it simply doesn't make sense. He wasn't good enough to even make the team at Notre Dame aas a 22 year old. He wasn't good enough to start there as a 23 year old. It isn't like he is a pitcher who can throw 90+ and just has no control. He is a catcher who got 18 at bats in college through the age of 23. There was no chance someone else drafts him. Why waste a pick? I know there were guys out there with talent available who would have signed. It simply doesn't make sense.

    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.

    So you wouldn't be upset by a 7th round NFL pick who wasn't good enough to make his college team and had say, 3 downs played in his college career?

    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.

    There is a huge huge difference between being beat out by two guys that were Heisman winners and both, what top 5 picks? vs not playing over some nobody. Cassels talent was never denied but he just had better players ahead of him.

    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.

    I agree with this.

    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.

    Agreed - please use the many other threads for draft discussion.

    Re: Official 2010 Reds Signed Draft Picks Thread

    From Fay:

    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.
    Maybe they want to get him signed before they can make a decision on whether to include Mesoraco in a trade for pitching?
    Go BLUE!!!
