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.
