That's the bottom line right there. The Reds are NOT going to contend next year, therefore WMP HAS to play in every game possible. For WMP to play everyday, Casey has to go. It's that simple.
Even if the money saved is NOT put back into the team, it's a move that has to be done for baseball reasons, not financial.
