I'm also confident that Boxberger will be done as well. It's not like these guys were going to pitch much anyway, so just beat the deadline like everyone else and move forward.
Still -- being a Reds fan is like being a punching bag. Every piece of news is bad. There is no fun in this anymore.
I know Jocketty is just trying to be informative for the beat writers, but his statement is an abomination. It tells fans this -- we won't spend on top veteran players. And now there is danger we won't be able to sign a first draft choice who was probably overdrafted (for financial reasons) to begin with.
I really don't want to hear it, Walt. And please don't play hero when and if you finally do sign your top picks.
What an organization.
