Reds First Pick Looks Very Serious

The Reds first pick at number 27 in the draft is high school right-hander Robert Stephenson. He's a Californian who was described by scouting director Chris Buckley as "an outstanding high school projection pitcher with a very loose, live arm." That sounds okay. I won't pretend to know anything about him other than what I read in the article on the Reds home site. Or maybe I will. The Reds Rocket's very informed opinion of the pick is overall positive. He's apparently got a scholarship to the University of Washington. You know what everyone says about the UW, Huck the Fuskies. Get it, because their actual mascot is the Huskies. So, that offer is nothing special. That kid must not watch The Killing if he's planning on going to Seattle for a minimum of 3 years. It's been a steady downpour for all 11 episodes of that show.

Anyway, the Reds Rocket likes guys who can throw 98 and refuse to smile in photographs. So, good job Buckley, now you just have to get Castellini to share some of that vegetable money with you (because he's a vegetable distribution magnate).
