For the record, I don't believe it either. But it's not much of a conspiracy. Sounds like a perfectly normal type of ego that exists in all of us, especially general managers. That type of thinking is normal human behavior.
But I doubt that's the reason, personally. I think the Reds are just simply reluctant to admit defeat at the position or they simply aren't ready to trust Cozart enough to release or outright Renteria.
