There is a load of difference between saying the REDS could do with Masterson and then jump on the GM for not getting him. The BoSox have a ton of good pitching at the starting level and while they have had some problem with middle relief its not dire.
I can buy that, the Reds are going to get fodder and filler.
They don't have the money to compete in the real business world. Or they would.
I have been tracking this investor group or a part of it for years, as the fans chase their tails wondering and wondering when, when are the Reds going to be competitive.
They are, in their return on investment for the investors, they are winning where it counts, at the bank.
