Milton's injury rushed Bailey?
Then why was Bobby Livingston here twice, and Saarloos given a shot?
They could have kept with thier Bailey's not ready stuff, and left Livingston up here for good, or at least until Bailey "was ready" down the road.
They didn't do that....they made the move
I think I'm on the side that previous ownership forced DanO to sign someone, and Milton was the best of what was left, so they threw ungodly amounts of money at him....and as we know, turned out to be the worst (or close to the worst) free agency signing in Reds history
