Thursday news and notes

Tonight I finished all of the writing for the 2013 Prospect Guide. I will be ready for the printer on Monday. If you plan on purchasing a soft cover version of the book rather than the PDF version, please pre-order if before the weekend is over. Soft cover version orders have been few and far between thus far and the pre-orders are what I have used in the past to determine the amount to order (and use the pre-order money to help pay for printing costs).

The Rule 5 draft is at 10am today. If the Reds lose or gain any players, I will update this post with information.

The offseason awards continue to pile up for the Reds. On Tuesday they were named the Baseball America Organization of the Year.

Redsfest begins tomorrow. I can’t stress to you enough how awesome Redsfest is. If you can make it down for the event, you really should. Here is a list of the minor leaguers who will be in attendance:

  • Tucker Barnhart
  • Tony Cingrani
  • Daniel Corcino
  • Billy Hamilton
  • Ryan LaMarre
  • Kyle Lotzkar
  • El’Hajj Muhammad
  • Denis Phipps
  • Todd Redmond
  • Steve Selsky
  • Robert Stephenson
  • Pedro Villarreal

Essentially all of the Major Leaguers will be there with the exception of Jay Bruce, who is getting married. There will also be about 20 former Reds attending the event.

Here is an update on the guys playing winterball
