Major League Baseball has finally announced the order of the Major League 2021 baseball project. With the uncertainty of the 2020 season coming to an end, the Commissioners’ Office and the Major League Baseball Players Association have agreed to leave the order of the 2021 project to the commissioner. . The reason was that if a season was not completed, ordering drafts for something like 20 games would not be the idea of the project. However, the season was over and the Commissioners’ office continued and made it official and the contract was based on regular season records for each team. This leaves the Cincinnati Reds to draw the 17th overall result in the 1st round in July 2021. You can read a little more about how the whole RedsMinorLeagues.com project will play out if you want more information.
Tejay Antone and Rookie of the Year
The rookie of the year award for 2020 will be strange. With just 60 games, things are a little weird. Ke̵
In 2020, in Cincinnati, only two rookies received real time to play – Tejay Antone and Shogo Akiyama. One of these guys was exceptional all season, while the other lifted things down. Antone could get a few votes after posting a 2.80 ERA for 35.1 passes in a role that saw him switch back and forth between relief and start. He is unlikely to win the prize, given the race. But in Baseball America, they asked me to choose the rookie of the year for the Reds, and Anton was an easy, easy choice.
More on the list of free agents Ha-Song Kim
Last week, we looked at whether the Korean shortlist Ha-Song Kim could be an option for the Cincinnati Reds, after it was announced that his team would send him this offseason. Dan Szymborski released ZiPS forecasts for the young direct stop and things look pretty good from that point of view. Over the next five seasons, he is expected to be a 3.5-3.9 WAR player with well-rounded attacking skills.
Remembering Joe Morgan
Red Reporter’s Wick Terrell writes about Joe Morgan and how exactly Morgan led to his Cincinnati Reds fandom, despite the fact that he never remembers playing in the Hall of Fame.
Mike Petriello of MLB.com wrote about how Joe Morgan was even better than you remember on Monday.
But above all, he was just a ball player, one of the greatest of all time. If you saw him play, it might seem superfluous. Well, of course it was. Didn’t you see what he could do? But for those of us who have never had a chance to watch him – his last match for 1984 – A came almost four decades ago, which means that most people under the age of 50 have no real memory of him on the pitch – it’s important remember that he was not just a baseball legend. He was legally one of the greatest players who ever lived.
MLB Network has collected a video about the greatness of Joe Morgan after his death. It is made from past interviews and footage from the game. You can watch it below.
