Read it, trust me on this.
I'm sure it's a great book..
But from what I've heard on the board about it, the Reds aren't exactly emulating the model..
In fact, other than shedding salary, the Reds have done little at all since Bowden left. The Mercker trade was a good one. The Boone trade might be good (if Clausen recovers and lives up to expectations).. The Guillen trade was a push.. didn't really get great talent, but we probably shouldn't expect much. Ditto for Stinett.
The other trades/give aways, we were fleeced.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
