The 2011 Draft: Day 3 Thread.


   Did you know Mike Piazza was a 62nd-round draft pick? Keith Hernandez went in the 42nd round. Plenty of other players selected in round 30 or later have reached the big leagues.

   Tim Lincecum was drafted in the 43rd round out of high school, but the Indians refused to meet his $1 million price tag and the Cy Young winner to be went to the University of Washington before becoming a first-rounder with the Giants in 2006.

   While today doesn't hold the excitement of Day 1 or even the appeal of Day 2, the third day of the MLB draft offers an opportunity to acquire some players who can contribute or even be stars. Let's hope the Reds land a few of those today. I'll be following the draft as it unfolds, offering commentary on each player the Reds select. I hope you'll be along for the ride.

   On Thursday, I'll have a wrapup of all the Reds picks, including a "Turtle's Take" on what I think of the pick.
