"This is why Michael Inoa signed with the A's over the Reds and Rangers. Inoa and his family felt Oakland had a better pitching development program and therefore signed with Oakland."

That's a partial quote from the following URL:

If true, it ticks me off as a Reds fan because I have been under the impression that the pitching development system has gotten a lot better over the past 5 years.

That was a few years ago and most people feel it also has to do with the park.

That would be a much more fair reason why. Kind of a chicken [crap] way for the Inoa family to go about picking a team. ;)

Id say its a smart way to go about picking a team....who wants to pitch in a cracker jack box? Be real here, would you rather pitch here? or Petco? Here? or Seattle? your paid by what your stats say your worth so why not give yourself the best chance to have good stats.

Oakland is famous for their pitchers over the past decade what's wrong with him choosing Oakland over us?

The Reds aren't exactly pros at developing pitchers.

I don't know I think that evry pro team in the pros are pros at developing pitchers or they wouldn't have a job.
