Still out there after 21 picks (from Kevin Goldstein's last mock): #11 Joey Gallo (HS 3B), #13 Marcos Stroman (college RHP), #16 Deven Marrero (college SS), #17 Lance McCullers Jr. (HS RHP).
Little trivia tidbit on our pick - he goes to Archbishop McCarthy High School. The school is named after Archbishop Edward McCarthy, a Cincinnati native and one time auxiliary bishop here before moving on to Phoenix, then to Miami.

Since the Reds have known him for a long time maybe they have an in on getting him signed up too.
“This one was a perfect one. I don’t know if I can find a better one, better timing. He [Price] really said some great things there. It really encouraged us to go back and do what we do. … I didn’t know he could speak like that.” Brayan Pena 5/21/14
With all the talk they're giving Stroman and him getting to the bigs this year...I think he's going to the Cards.
Or not. :O) Blue Jays
99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
Bailey CYA winner
Hamilton ROY & GG
Nope - the Jays grabbed Stroman
The sausage king of Toronto -- Marcus Stroman.
Stroman to the Jays at 22. 5'9" college righthander, likely a reliever.
Gallo, Shaffer, Piscotty, Roache, Walker, O'Brien, Ramsey, Trahan - there's still a number of good bats alive on the board
Hopefully the next pick loves Annie Hall and quotes Nietzsche. I doubt he will be much fun to be around though and his bat could be depressing.
Lucas Sims was just singing "Blame it on the rain" from Milli Vanilli so Trevioso liking Happy Gilmore isn't so bad. lol
Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.
Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg
