Dude, it's been one game.
Tonight is the first time Corey's even started a game for the Reds in quite some time. He's only playing CF tonight so Bruce can be in RF while Junior gets the night off. He'll be back on the bench tomorrow when Junior is back in the lineup.
And for the record, I'm totally on board with trading a few guys to get some pieces for the future of the team but I'm not on the boat with giving guys away and getting little value in return. Jocketty has been in this business for a long time and I trust him to make good decisions here at the deadline.
