Yeah. I listened to the whole shameless segment online. At one point, after Castellini claimed that the Reds would have a "winning record", he then felt he needed to enhance that with another demand of "contender" status. It was as if he figured out that it's better to lie big than lie little.
Always Red pretty much nailed it. Little more than 24 hours ago, the "economy" was the reason the Reds were now standing pat. Now sponsorships are up and the claim is that attendance really might not look to be affected. The latter makes sense because when you rank 14th in the your league in attendance in the first place, there isn't a whole lot of room to fall. But the former statement is completely contradictory versus yesterday's cries of poverty.
We just got fed a snake oil cocktail with a strychnine-laced kool-aid chaser, folks.
