Re: The case for keeping Weathers
On the surface he has quite a bit of value for the Reds next year, so there is no motivation to give him away.
That's the way I feel about a good bit of the reds roster. I honestly don't think there is anybody on this roster that I wouldn't trade for the right package.
OTOH there are some guys (Lohse/Hatteberg/Conine) that they would be foolish to not give away for anything they can get. As much as I like Hatteberg, he's not going to be on the next good reds team.

I'll take my scorecard and pencil and beer and hot dog and rage at the dips and cheer at the highs, but I'm not ever going to stop loving this game and this team and nobody will ever take that away from me."
