    The best player in the draft after Cleveland whiffs.

    Lots and lots of time to find out.

    Skenes was a mid first-rounder at this time last season.

    All things being equal, I'd love to have a monster TOR bonafide ace to pair with Lowder ahead of Greene, Lodolo, and company for four or five seasons.

    7.1 walks per 9 last year. He has a long way to go to be a #2 pick. Right now it's Burns or a bat at #2.

    First year he is focusing on pitching. He was a duel sport athlete before (was recruited as a football player) - I think he’s going to improve his control significantly and fly up the board.

    Yes. We get to sit back and watch for 6 months as these young prospects take themselves to another level, and it should be a growth spurt of different proportions for all of them.

    Somehow it just seems right that San Diego is picking 25th after spending all of that money and still finishing with the same record as the REDS, who practically spent nothing.

    After I saw Cleveland #1 I rushed to see where we were and had to triple check it was true lol
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Much (!) better than last year, when the odds were with them, but results were not!

    The Reds getting to pick #2 in the 2024 MLB draft is huge. It helps to make up for dropping out of the Top 6 last year. Cincinatti now gets a big boost to their Draft Pool.

    Re: #2 Pick

    Mesoraco legit tweeted this at 10:30 this morning:

    Reds fans after today: “Remember that time we sent Devin Mesoraco to the draft lottery to appeal to the baseball Gods for all the surgery’s and DL time he had and we got a top 3 pick”.

    With that said, this is kind of like having the number 1 pick because Cleveland got 1st and you know they will go under slot

    Had only a .9% chance at #2. Wild stuff.
