Re: Bob Cast: You have to work hard - You have to work smart
[QUOTE=redsmetz;1202793] We all agree many of these contracts being given out are outlandish and NJRed correctly notes that we've carried some poor contracts ourselves. That said, do we just want the team to p*** money away? QUOTE]
This is all very true, but are these outlandish contracts ever going to decline in this ever growing market? I doubt it. The reds do have to work harder and smarter. If you are going to make a move, make sure its for a guy that has been very consistant and reliable over the years, so you know exactly what you are getting. That is why I liked the Reds signing Gonzalez. We didn't give him the money expecting him to hit .300 and drive in 100 runs. We signed him to play great defense and sure up the middle infield. To me that is wise spending.
