Re: If Corey Patterson is the OD starting centerfielder-It will be a crying shame!
Listen, Bruce will be in the minors for about two months. It's a money thing, not an experience thing, even if that's what the Reds say. If he stays down for a couple years, that makes it so he won't be declared as a "super two" making him eligible for arbitration in 2 years.
If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.
