    O'Rear, 21, informed the Reds that he wanted to return to Northern Iowa for his senior basketball season.

    "I asked them if it was all right if I come back and play college basketball and they said it was totally fine," he said.

    O'Rear also got permission from UNI basketball coach Ben Jacobson to begin his pro baseball career this summer with the Reds.
    "He supports me 100 percent and that's how Coach Jake is," O'Rear said. "He looks after his players like we were his kids."

    Nice. Thanks Chip.

    I want O'Rear closing in the GCL, a man among boys.

    In particular I would like to see the college draftees signed early enough to get at least 6 weeks of playing. Those guys will be able to get more out of the off season and be more likely to start at the correct level next year. I think the protracted Alonso negotiation hurt his progression through the system.

    On the other hand, the HS players will most likely start in AZL next year anyway. Taking time with them, especially the pitchers, may actually be a plus.

    There are like 12 other threads in which you can debate the merits of drafting strategies guys. Can we keep the discussion in this one to who the Reds actually got to sign on the dotted line?

    Undrafted free agent signing. I guess it goes here.
    The Cincinnati Reds signed former Lynchburg College Outfielder Jeff Taylor, Jr. to a Free Agent contract Monday. Taylor was undrafted in the 2010 MLB First-Year Player Draft in early June.

    Here's a blurb from Lynchburg's press release:

    Taylor, Jr. finished his career at Lynchburg as the all-time stolen base leader, holding the ODAC record as well. He ended his illustrious tenure at Lynchburg as the all-time games played and started leader, and was also a two-time All-ODAC first-teamer. He posted a .356 career batting average (218-613), scoring 133 runs and driving in 121 over his four years at LC.

    Such signings are always long shots, but every now and then, one will pan out (ala Ryan Hanigan).

    Here's another story about the undrafted guy, Jeff Taylor. I'll definitely be watching and rooting for this kid. Good for him!

    An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”

    Of course Harford signed.... he had 18 career college at bats despite being 23 years old. If they offered him more than 3 figures, he should consider himself eternally thankful.
