Re: Am I the only one looking at all these trades
lets look at it from another standpoint.....each year we hear the FO say that we are building and we wont sell off our future prospects.....JayB was untouchable, homer was untouchable....How many current Reds starters were a part of our minor leagues for at least 1 full year before they were a member of the starting 9? Or even bench players included?
I think I can make the argument that even your most prized talent in the minors rarely pans out the way you think it will pan out. My thougt is you can sell that talent at a high price and spend some money on "PROVEN" talent that is aleready playing......For every Joey Votto there are 10 Brandon Larson's. It seems the Cards have taken this theory and are starting to run with it. Maybe Yonder is your guy you dont touch, but that dont mean you cant trade Heisy and stubbs.....or even Homer if the price is right.....
I dont know, maybe I am just mad that the reds suck
