    Reds have pick #27 in 2011 MLB draft

    http://www.baseballamerica.com/today...0/2610756.html

    According to Baseball America the Reds have pick #27. This will be the latest the Reds have picked in many years. What players do you think the Reds will consider drafting?

    Tough to even imagine who will be available at #27. I would love for us to go after a corner outfielder with power or a starting pitcher. Have to best available, but those are the two positions that I would love to grab at first round.

    I'd like at least two true corner OF prospects in the first 10-12 rounds. I'd also like a solid third base prospect with the glove to stick and projectable power.

    So basically, the most we can expect is an average position player, a starting pitcher who fell due to signability concerns, or a solid reliever. Obviously, our hopes will be much higher, but that's not a very impressive list at all.

    Let's face it, most draft picks don't make it, even first rounders. If we get someone who touches the ML success of the guys above, we'll all be quite happy!

    Sleepin' on Daric Barton, I tells ya. And there are some other good prospects in that mix who haven't reached the show yet...

    Absolutely. Schlereth is one who springs to mind as a potential star.

    Of course it will be BPA. Ideally, I'd like that to be a pitcher or a corner OF with a big bat. Probably a college kid.

    I dunno...I have to agree that, even though this is a list of LATE first rounders, there's not a lot of impact there. But we'll see....lot of time for a few of those guys.

    Seems like late in the 1st would be a good opportunity to nab a high-end talent who has signability concerns and wants a big bonus.

    Or, sign a FA LF and give up the first round pick next year.
    Opinions are like belly buttons. Everybody has one, and they don't want someone else's shoved into their face.

    Don't forget that this is also an abnormally deep draft... The talent will be there, it's up to the Reds to identify it.

    Didn't we get the legendary John Oliver around that slot a few years ago?

    This is simple. You're always hearing about these guys that were drafted in later rounds who make it big (Pujols was picked in the 13th rd). Just figure out who that 13th rounder is gonna be this year and take him in the first. How hard was that?
