I agree with you, Trade Alonso now in a package of players for an ACE Starter to stabalize the rotation and roll the dice on the next 3 years with Votto on the team...
The next 3 years the Reds have the opportunity to win so the Front Office must act now to win...
Sign Crawford, Sign Lee and even if the payroll goes to 100 Million. Then thats what you spend. The Time is now.
Not rebuilding anymore.
well that definitly sounds fun. i guess ur more of a fan of the FLA marlins style of just do whatever it takes for one year to win then suck for 5-7 years afterwards. or you could be minnesota twins style and not take big risks but manage the payroll and talent very well to keep sustained success.
its kinda like would you take 1 WS then 9 losing seasons, then another WS then 9 losing seasons etc, etc. or would you rather just go to the playoffs 9/10 years but never win the WS?
not saying i disagree but its just not gonna happen. walt setting this thing up to be a good team every year, not just 1 or 2 then rebuild 8 out of 10 years.
