    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.

    Question is as a high school arm signed with the U of Miami will he sign easily? Time will tell but a strong arm with a repeatable delivery is a good start.

    Not 100% sold but he has potential.
    I'm presuming there is no way the Reds would have taken Travieso without knowing he would sign. He's probably still in disbelief he was the #14 overall pick.

    Since the Reds have known him for a long time maybe they have an in on getting him signed up too.

    You have said 'none of the darft experts...", but two of us have mentioned that Travieso was projected at #20 overall pick by Baseball America....they certainly qualify as draft experts.

    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
    2014 predictions:
    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

    Stroman to the Jays at 22. 5'9" college righthander, likely a reliever.

    Good point. My fault. (Also, that makes me feel better about the pick.)

    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
