Re: What did Walt Jocketty do differently?
He signed WT to a two year deal. I'm still waiting on a single member of the Reds organization to defend that signing.
Getting Chapman, while a risk, was brilliant, can't deny it. The trade for Rolen... Well i still think it was a bad trade. Especially if Frazier tears up AAA to start this year. And since EE is likely on the DL for TOR, Frazier COULD have started for the Reds out of ST. IMO, a missed opportunity.
But Walt gets no credit for the rotation, 1B, 2B, RF, CF, and gets only 50% for C.
So, he hasn't done all that much.
“I’ll just take my walk,” he said, to laughter. One reporter followed up that Hamilton might be able to score from first on a single. “If he does, that’s great. Isn’t that crazy? Think about that: I hit a single and got an RBI. Like I said, crude stat, right?”
