Re: Is it me or could that money have gone elsewhere
Not picking on the OP here, but I think the Reds could've traded for Felix Hernandez and signed him to an extension and there would've been 10 threads entitled "we should've signed _______ instead. This makes no sense".
Goes to show you can't please everyone. I, along with the majority of Reds fans that I've talked to, are THRILLED with this signing. The future of this team looks like it should be fun to watch.
Just need to figure out what to do with Alonso soon. His bat is going to warrant being in the big leagues very soon
