    Yeah, the Reds could choose his with their CB pick and punt their last 3 picks and not have the $3M needed to sign him.

    The only way to save that type of money is to draft a very early pick on an extreme under slot deal.

    Draft indicates why baseball bores people.

    Pitchers and corner OFers.

    Few two-way middle of the diamond players.

    Station-to-station baseball with lot of strikeouts.

    I wouldn't object to the Reds drafting Isaiah Greene at 65.

    I'm a little surprised nobody's taken Casey Martin yet.

    ESPN said he was one of the best High School Catchers and is a Hit first Catcher. The Reds are drafting a bat according to the Analysts.

    A catcher with average tools across the board seems kind of rare.

    Two guys I was interested in for the Reds go off the board during the compensation round: Greene and Burleson.

    Re: Day 2 MLB Draft

    Catchers who hit left handed are always intriguing to me, not many thoughts on Miller beyond that.
    “I don’t care,” Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. “He’s in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.”

    Don’t know anything about Miller. If he’s related to Corky, I love the pick. Like Roa.
    I'm just going to go find a cash machine.

    So the White Sox employed the idea of taking 2 first round talents and punting everything else...
