    He’s an innings eater. If he can limit his BBs, he should be a solid back end addition.

    It happens everywhere. Had the offers been pulled from out of state kids, this thread wouldn't even exist.

    If the coach really did that, IMO that’s a fireable offense. You’re actively hindering any potential college caliber players on your team by doing so.

    Yes, indeed. I know it won't happen, because it's the Reds, but a signing of one of those two and a trade for Kluber (or a lesser extent Bauer) and they've had a whale of an offseason.

    So you mean the guy that spend the time and effort building a relationship with the kid and his family wanted to be the one to make the call and let him know what was going on? Dang, seems like the staff handled it absolutely perfectly. Amazing how that detail was never shared before now.

    On that, at least, we're in agreement.

    Scholarships are a one year deal.....So in your opinion should a coach be required to honor those scholarships he didn't offer after that initial year?

    Can we also look at it from the aspect that maybe these kids don't have the talent to play at the level UofL is aspiring to be?

    I don't know who you're talking about, but I wonder if he doesn't have other offers because of his commitment. Will other offers possibly come in now? Either way, my gut reaction is that's life. Real world comes at you fast, best get used to it.

    Doesn't make it okay just because they have more to lose. And let's not act like these kids don't have other options. So UofL pulls an offer. I guarantee the kid will be scooped up by another program that had offered them previously. Let me also be clear on my stance here. I have no issue with the new staff deciding not to honor prior commitments. I also have no issue with players deciding to back out of their commitments when there's...

    So as long as the coach picks up the phone and says, "hey, Coach A took a commitment from you, but we frankly don't think you're good enough for our scheme or this level. We'll honor the scholly, but just know you'll never see the field." That's okay? Also, so a coach has to stand behind offers he never made, but the players can peace out whenever they want and leave the schools high and dry? Sorry, I just don't see the rational...

    I'm struggling to follow or see any logic behind the whole "colleges should honor commitments obtained by prior coaching staffs". Why is it okay for players to back out of commitments due to a staff change, but it's not okay for the new staff to do the same?

    Yep. It's amazing to me how much angst people have over sports. This past weekend, UK lost by a point (my team), Xavier got smashed in the Crosstown Shootout (my wife's team), and NKU lost at the buzzer (our collective team/alma mater). Then jump to Sunday and the Patriots lose in epic last second fashion. All that being said, my weekend was still great. Probably one of the better, most fun weekends I've had recently. I just...

    Jon Morosi ‏Verified account jonmorosi 7m7 minutes ago Source: #Reds continue to pursue rotation options via trade, including ongoing discussions with #Indians about Corey Kluber or Trevor Bauer. @MLB @MLBNetwork I would deal any two prospects in the organization if it meant the Reds got Corey Kluber. You add him and sign a Happ or Keuchel and you're instantly a contender IMO.

    Sounds like the 1st team to add a 3rd year to their offer for Happ will get his services. I wouldn't be against the Reds doing it.
