How anyone can defend a guy that signed Taveras to a two year contract is beyond me. The Reds in the past few years have seemed to make it a priority to sign and acquire guys I specifically hoped would never end up in Cincinnati, it'd be nice if that would stop.
They all have their dogs. Howsam traded Hal McRae for Roger Nelson and Richie Scheinblum, and brought in Merv Rettenmund. What he did build was one of the greatest teams of all time, but he didn't do it in one season.
