–The Reds have signed nine of their recent draft picks, including 2nd rounder Billy Hamilton and 3rd rounder Donnie Joseph.

I’m really surprised — and pleased — that Hamilton signed so quickly. You may recall that he had a scholarship to play college football at Mississippi State. No, it’s not tOSU, but it is the SEC.

–Doug has a good interview with Zach Stewart, who is having a spectacular season with AA Carolina (and A Sarasota before that). I hope to see Stewart pitch this weekend when I watch the Mudcats and the Tennessee Smokies.
