    Giolitto, Gallo, Shaffer, Hawkins, Piscotty, Stratton. Please no Marrero.

    Harold Reynolds mentioned comparing Cecchini to Zach Cozart.

    Why do we not like Marrero? Seriously, I know nothing about the guy and am wondering why we wouldn't want to take him here.

    That's a good guess and solid reasoning.

    What is it about Marrero that everybody hates?

    Actually, as much as I want a couple of top bats out og this draft. I'm hoping they roll the dice with Giolitto

    His bat, mainly.

    Scouts don't think he'll be all that great offensively.

    Of the college arms left, I think I'd prefer Stroman. Most electric college arm. Sure thing for the back of the bullpen. For a team in a competitive window, that's acceptable, IMO. Not my top preference, but I would not be bummed.

    I'd gamble with Giolito. But, as a Reds fan, I'd be happy with Hawkins, Stratton, or Shaffer.

    Dammit. Hawkins to Sox. Hoping for Giolito or at least Stratton/Shaffer.
    Go BLUE!!!
