Is that because of the talent offered or that said talent wasn't developed properly. I don't know the answer to that, but it sure seems like Rolen is awfully swan like.
DRH and Volquez for Hamilton. Lots of talent in that deal. Massett has had an... interesting year, but the Reds got him for Jr. when Jr. had almost no value. The last 6 drafts have seen a bunch of talent infused into the system. But it doesn't seem to be developing. Chicken or egg? bad scouting or bad developing? I think the latter.
