    Drafted for upside potential, and his power arm.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    Happy Gilmore and Roger Clemens? Not sure I like the pick.

    Awesome.
    Ugh, I agree.

    I would've loved to have seen a couple college players at the top of the Reds draft.


    I hope he gives up hockey. The Reds don't need any pitching prospects getting checked into the boards.
    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.

    Seems like a bit of a nozzle. Who says that kind of stuff?
