Pup wrote:The reason for the June 15 date is if the guy is a "draft and follow" player the Reds took last year. Almost anyone a team drafts is that team's property until a week before the following draft. Teams can draft someone in 2005 and tell them we want to sign you, but would rather you spent a year at either Junior college or play a 4th year at D1. Depending on the date of this year's draft, the drop dead date would probably be around June 1. This would give both teams two weeks to decide on if this particular guy is legit.

Then when Marte comes up, you would have an infield of Marte, Philips, Belliard, and Peralta, which would be a damn sight better than Boone, Peralta, Belliard, and Broussard/Perez.

I am not advocating it, but remember he was slotted to be the 2B in 2005 before the Indians lost out on some FAs and decided to bring belliard back (and move Blake to RF instead).

And, from what I have read, Crowe will still be in the OF this year. He worked out at 2B in the instructional leagues only, and won't play 2B again until the instructional leagues after this season. So, at this point, he is not a 2B candidate. Until they officially move him to 2B, he is still an OFer. And, I am not sure he played much 2B at Arizona, if any at all.

Consigliere wrote:Yeah, 2B (and SS) is a concern in the org.....which is why Crowe is being moved there. In the upcoming 2nd part of the Kline Q&A, he offers some insights on Crowe (hint: he is high on Crowe at 2B).Anyway, it is a position they will need to address in the draft (about 5 weeks away)....or in any mid or offseason trades.
