Daily Brief: MLB draft

Last Game
The Reds brought the series even with an 8-1 win over the Pirates last night. The game was delayed by weather, but they didn’t do the start-and-stop thing, allowing Homer Bailey to get his second career complete game.

Next Game
The rubber match happens tonight at 7:05 p.m. Johnny Cueto (5-2, 2.53 ERA) takes on A.J. Burnett (3-2, 4.19 ERA). The light-hitting Pirates could be a good springboard for a struggling Cueto.

MLB Draft
Next Monday, baseball goes the way of football and tries to convince television watchers that 150 front office guys playing with the lives of teens and 20-somethings is worth tuning in for. To make the first-year player draft more palatable, the Reds have enlisted Sean Casey to be their representative. The Reds will select 14th, 49th, 57th, 78th, 109th, and 142nd.

What to Say to Sound Smart at the Water Cooler
Homer Bailey, Jay Bruce, Mike Leake, Devin Mesoraco, and Drew Stubbs were all selected in the first round of the draft.
