Re: Bottom line: Reds suck because of an inability to produce prospects
There are a lot of reasons the reds have been bad for the past 5+ seasons. It starts with poor drafting, player development, and trading. They have been cheap and didn't spend too much money but when they do they have stuggled in signing the right players for the right price. You can look over the past 5 years and see that the players being paid the most were some of the worst producers overall. I think now is the time to scrap this current team and system and start anew. I thought they were going to do that with the change in ownership and management but they havn't. I am tired of roll players being signed to be performers while prospects are being promoted very slowly. Guys like Stanton and Conine would be ok if they were the 24 and 25th man not guys who you expected big time results from. Enough with being a poor team, take the hit and build for the future.
