Hal has gotten some things right. Also, he clearly called the Dye trade a rumor.
I don't get why people are piling on Hal. Would you rather have someone not report anything until the Reds issue a press release? Would you rather have not had any information about the possible Dye-Homer trade? Makes for a boring offseason. Hal is good at scooping up legitimate rumors in the offseason. I'm glad he is still reporting for the Reds, and I think when he retires, we are going to get a lot less information in the offseason.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
