It’s a surprise edition of the podcast! Doug Gray joined me to analyze Cincinnati’s first two picks in the 2019 draft, pitcher Nick Lodolo and SS Rece Hinds. Immediately after the Reds’ second round selection on the first day of the draft, we talked about how excited Reds fans should be about Lodolo, his makeup, and how quickly he can make it to the big leagues. Also, Hinds has one big-time skill, and we discussed whether that’s a big enough draw to pick a high school shortstop so early in the draft.
