MOD Reds

Hey guys. Well this is my first time, be gentle, doing this so here goes nothing. I would love a lot of chat and discussion about what the Redlegs should do. I am one to always go with best player available but I also like to think about what positions we need to focus on. Shortstop is definitely a weak point in the system and you can never have enough pitching, just ask Miami. I think going after someone at 1.19 or 1.29 at short is a stretch. Trea Turner would be the only one I would have interest in that early and I feel as though he will be gone. So if there is someone we like at 2.59 I think that is where we would hit on a shortstop. But only if we have someone ranked there. We could also use some bats in the organization at any position, except first.

So I have been logging every mock draft I have been able to get my hands on, 27 so far, and we rank guys located within the 2 before and after our pick and start there and see what everyone thinks.

1.19 Max Pentecost, Kyle Freeland, Mike Conforto, Braxton Davidson, Erick Fedde - I really like Pentecost at this spot.

1.29 Jake Bukauskas, Nick Burdi, Kodi Medeiros, Dylan Cease, Michael Cederoth - I like Medeiros here. I think Bukauskas is headed to school.

2.59 Grant Hockin, Alex Blandino, Alex Destino, JD Davis, Taylor Sparks - I like Blandino here but the mocks show Milton Ramos may still be available here so I may be inclined to look at him in this spot. Pankake would be another bat I like that shows he may still be had in this spot.

3.95 Josh Morgan, Keith Weisenberg, Jacob Lindgren, Joseph Gatto, Ryder Ryan - I could go either Morgan or Ryan here.

4.126 Jon Littell, Carson Sands, Heath Fillmyer, Trace Loehr, Drew Lugbauer - Really not sure who to go with here. Could go any way and may have to go with a senior sign to save some money.

So right now I would go Pentecost, Medeiros, Ramos, Morgan, Sands.

1 catcher with a solid bat, 2 LHP (1 possibly a closer but I really like Medeiros), and 2 SS.

Once again, this is not a dictatorship and I would love some lively discussion.

Thanks.
