Re: Does this make anyone else cringe?
Didn't we do the home run or bust thing already. It didn't work out real well as I recall. As far as the Hamilton trade - anybody can look back now, 4-5 years after the fact and say it was a bad trade, but not very many people were complaining when Volquez won 17 games that first year.
As far as Dunn, I felt the Reds didn't get enough for him and EE was everybody's whipping boy - whom we couldn't wait to run out of town.
It's not like the Reds are in the doldrums without these guys.
