    The Saunders pick must have been a favor to Brandon Phillips. Somebody to bowl with.

    Plus he was named "Channel 12 Athlete of the Week". That's right up there with getting a note from your mother saying you are a swell guy.

    Does it seem odd to anyone that the Reds draft so many guys from obscure colleges? So far: Trinity, Bakersfield, Palomar, Grayson County, Saginaw Valley, Albany, Southern Utah . . . And it's not just this year. I've noticed the same thing the past couple seasons. I wonder if the Reds are unusual in that respect.

    My guess is that everyone does, it's just that you only look at the Red's list that closely?

    U of O has just had their baseball program back for a couple of seasons now. It seemed like it really got going again quickly.

    Opinions are like belly buttons. Everybody has one, and they don't want someone else's shoved into their face.

    There's some rule in there that allows some sophomores to be eligible for the draft, but I don't recall what it is. It's fairly limited, as I recall.
