    Firing offense. But he's still in the organization, isn't he?

    Don't forget...he drafted his own son as well.

    I’m not sure, I thought he was gone, but do the Reds ever actually fire anyone?

    Condon, after going 0-4 in today's 9-1 loss to LSU, won't get another PA until Regionals begin.

    To be fair, he was an 11th round draft pick. The part that irked me was how far over slot his bonus was.

    Julian Aguilar (12-360)
    Blake Dunn (14-450)

    Kevin Abel (7-210) is old for his level at 25, but is doing well in Dayton as well.
    12th Round pick Julian Aguilar is looking really good. Hasn't had a hiccup along the way so far. Every year he's been pitching below his age-level. Now at Chattanooga and -1.6 years below his age-level, he continues to display a great K/BB ratio just as he has at every level along the way so far. This year, it's 4.43, above his 4.17 career Minor League number. He also continues to keep runners off base this season at 1.017 to improve upon his already impressive career minor league numbers of 1.129. Having done all this while avoiding injuries, he's been able to compile 269.1 Innings of Minor League Pitching gaining a myriad of experience from different Coaches at four levels. In 2023 he threw for 125 Innings.

    Oregon State fell to Stanford 2-1 and is out of the Pac-12 Tournament. Next up is the Regionals.

    LSU is getting some really good pitching in the SEC tourney. Luke Holman went 6 no hit innings in a win over UK. He'd be a really solid round 2 pick if the Reds go college pitching. Mid 90's fast ball that plays up in the zone with good enough breaking stuff, solid command, and a lean projectable 6'4 frame.

    Four of the Top-6 NCAA teams lost their opening Tournament game, Oregon State, Kentucky, Arkansas and Georgia.
