Even with his limited range in RF and slowing bat, there's something sad about Jr. leaving the Reds in the middle of the season and on the road.
those were my feelings exactly. I was just running through that day in my head. The endless optimism that it brought. Never would have thought it would come down to this. Best of luck to Junior, whatever he choses. It's been a true pleasure to watch him play over these past years. Something I'll keep with me always. You always remember the greats, I'll remember this.
I'm just like everybody else. I have two arms, two legs and 4,000 hits."
