I think you are right Stormy....but we stil had the benefit of some optimism for EE, that this would be the year he turns the corner.
The Reds gave EE every chance to be a major league ballplayer, it just didn't work out. The finally cut bait....and I for one, am relieved he's finally been moved....he's a good poster boy for the Reds penchant of hanging on to players too long.
