Re: Can the Reds keep Jared Burton
I like what Burton showed us in Spring Training and hope he can replicate it during the regular season.
The only options I see for keeping him are not pleasant, but may need to be done.
Obviously with Cormier we all seem to think he's expendable. Perhaps a deal can be worked to move him to a team that needs a lefty for a suspect prospect of sorts.
I can't see Stanton, Weathers or others going, so do you send down Coffey? Maybe.
Coutlangus? Possibly if you're willing to relegate stanton to lefty specialist.
Santos? Has he done anything to warrant it since becoming a Red? No, but like Ross, he has a track record that suggests this performance is an aberration.
Bray, Burton, Majewski all are going to be looking for spots sooner rather than later and there are some tough tough choices that will have to be made.
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Cincinnati Bengals - None
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
