    Not sure what the average is but I count 9 average/above average players. The 2013 draft wasn't that great either. 2014 had some stars but a lot of busts. 2017 isn't looking too hot.

    Puk
    Braxton
    Quantrill
    Manning
    Lux
    Smith
    Carlson
    Wentz
    Lodolo

    Eric Lauer and Dane Dunning are solid mid-rotation starting pitchers I’d love to have in Cincinnati…

    Ian Anderson sure knows how to rock a flute solo though.
    Look, we're doing sustainability.
