We'll see how he does at Billings this year and next year at Dayton. Shouldn't take too long to see what kind of pick this was.
BTW, can't stress enough how much I love that Cingrani pick in the third round. He just had another good outing for Billings (2.2 perfect IP, 4 K). Hasn't given up a run yet in three starts (total of 6.2 innings -- they are obviously keeping his pitch count waaaaaaaay down ... haha).
FYI: Ryan Wright grew up a Reds fan:
So, what the hell is taking so long again? We are talking about a fifth-round second baseman, right? This shouldn't be all that difficult to figure out.
EDIT: Make sure you watch the 2+ minute interview with Wright if you follow that link. Really intelligent kid and sounds like someone the Reds would want in their system. I see him as Dayton's secon******ger next year if he signs. That will be a nice, short drive down from Ft. Wayne for his family to see him play. Well, if they can get tickets of course. Ha.

I think I read in the Villanova press release stuff that McMyne had the 12th highest ratio of K's per 9 in the country this season. Not too shabby.

Gabriel Rosa signed according to Jamie Ramsey.
The #Reds have signed their 2011 second round pick OF Gabriel Rosa.
I miss Adam Dunn.
Good to hear. I really like the video of this kid, and I like his size.
Let's hope Rosa adds some juice to what is a somewhat uninteresting AZL offense (outside of Dailey, of course).

Rosa's body type reminds me of Alfonso Soriano.
Reds sign 11th round pick Vaughn Covington according to BA.
Braves sign their first-round pick. Now #s 28 and 29 are signed.
