To understand Highlifeman, you must also understand that he is still very upset that Ben Broussard is not the Reds' starting 1B. I think that's all that needs to be said. Chris Denorfia is a fringe major league outfielder. That's all.
I liked the trade then and I like it now.
Obviously the A's feel they have OF depth to spare if they can jettison Milton Bradley.
As for Ben Broussard, I'm over that. I'm over picking Brandon Larson over Russell Branyan as well.
The Denorfia move still stings b/c it signifies a problem with the Reds' ability to judge/evaluate talent.
You don't at all find it curious as to why the A's would obtain a player out for the year?
As for Chris Denorfia being a fringe major leaguer, we'll have to agree to disagree at that assessment.
But I do appreciate the cheap, personal attack in your post. Thanks.
