Re: Tracking - Alonso, Grandal, Volquez, Boxberger, Sappelt, Wood, Torreyes
I don't get why people are so outraged that some want to track these guys. I personally wouldn't take back either trade (IMO, David Sappelt will be the guy missed the most), but I'm still interested in following these guys and seeing how they perform.
The Reds went a ton of years without producing much from the farm. It was the root cause of the lost decade (and a half) not the Griffey trade and contract, not the Eric Milton signing, not the change of the facial hair policy or anything to do with Marty Brennaman's style. I want these guys to all do well. Having Red's farm products producing throughout the major leagues is a good thing for this franchise IMO. I hope Adam Dunn, EdE (not really a Red's product) and Zach Stewart all have good years too.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
