Guess I'm not going yet. Just saw this story from Honolulu that Milton Loo has signed with the Reds. The paper reports he got a $220,000 bonus, which I believe is in the neighborhood of what he turned down last year.
That's a nice pickup for the Reds. Loo's stock had risen dramatically since they took him in the eighth round this year. Last I looked, Baseball America had him rated the No. 64 prospect overall heading into this year's draft. Now, he's out of it and will be headed to Sarasota or Billings before too long.

Thank you, and most
