As for financial considerations, either the Reds are prepared to play with the big dogs or they're not. Castellini walked in claiming he would not conduct business as usual. Here's a chance to prove it. The Reds talked themselves out of Derek Jeter and Scott Kazmir in past years due to "financial considerations." If Wieters is there he's the best player on the board, period. He's considered the best catching prospect since Joe Mauer.
Put up or shut up, Bob. I'm not interested in empty promises, I'm interested in the team I root for acting like it's not a doormat.
Krivsky was part of the team that drafted and developed Joe Maurer. Maybe there is a chance, that they take Wieters.
Whenever you get mad over a called strike or ball on a close pitch, it's the equivalent of being mad at the QB pump-faking one time before throwing a pass in your average NFL game. ---Caveat Emperor
