Re: Why The reds lose
The Reds are building a winner because they understand again what they used to understand. This team won when its farm system produced Larkin, Davis, Paul Oneil, Kal Daniels, Rob Dibble, Charlton, Browning and others. Uncle Carl was a horrible owner and I don't want to make it sound like I am defending him, but the damage was done long before he took over. The farm team is once again producing players that will help this team compete for years to come. Marge destroyed this franchise by gutting the farm system, and the only reason this team has a bright future is because they have reversed course and undone what Marge did to this franchise. Now it is once again producing players and pitchers. Marge was good to the major league payroll, but the Reds are not the Yankees, they don't have the ability to buy a championship because they cannot produce talent from their farm system. The lack of any homegrown fifteen game winner since Tom Browning demonstrates the damage she did to this franchise. She ran off good baseball people for her own personal reasons. Marge would be a great owner for a large market team but not the Reds.
