Like you said, I don't know why on Earth he would really care about finishing his career in Cincy. Yes, he grew up here and his dad played here, but his time here has been pretty rough.
I still don't see how it is pathetic. He's earned that right. It's not like it really hurts the Reds if he actually stays. They can still part ways at the end of the year and I severly doubt they get any sort of return on him (unlike the last time with the White Sox when the Reds were reported to be getting Chris Young). Again, I hope he accepts it and gets a chance at a ring, but stranger things have happened.
