Crap. The D'Backs are quickly becoming the new Blue Jays. I hate them now.

Cody Reed, LHP... that you may never see in black and gold.

Cody Reed: LHP, 6'3", 200, R-L, Athens, AL

BA Top 500 Rank: 52

Projected Draft Slot: Rd. 2-3

Perfect Game Grade: 9 (Southeast Region 1st Team)

Chances He'll Come to Campus: Low to Medium

Pick #54 Slot Value: $1,034,500

*My take: With the D'backs taking both Toussaint and Reed, it is clear that we are about to enter into a blood feud.  This may be an "if we don't sign Touki" pick, just like Kevin Comer was Beede insurance for the Blue Jays in '11.  If both are willing to sign for close to slot, they're gone.  There's still a chance the big lefty ends up in Nashville, but  as he was taken pretty much exactly where his talent would dictate, not a great one.

Time to continue drinking.
