2014-06-09 12:00:00 (link to chat)Overall thoughts on the Cincinnati Reds first three picks ?
(Bob from Cincy, OH)
Nick Howard (rhp, UVA) -- I really like him as a reliever and am interested to see what a switch to the rotation would look like. The Reds have made great strides with Lorenzen in a limited amount of time, so I'm more comfortable with that conversion in the Reds system than I would be in certain other systems.

Blandino (3b, Stanford) - really like the bat and he's going to be a solid to good defender at both third and second. I believe cincy is going to let him start off at short, and he's a talented enough defender to hold his own there for at least a little while.

Taylor Sparks (3b, UC Irvine) - Top level athlete with plus defense at third and power potential. Wasn't a great performance bat this spring, but there is upside here. Might not be a quick mover. Given they went collegiate ranks for their first two picks, I would have liked to see an upside HS arm here, but that's picking nits. (Draft Wrap Chat with Nick J. Faleris)
