Seems like this Reds management is becoming all about revenue and less about winning.
C'mon, sure you don't believe that. Drawing cards are great. Every teams wants marquee players, but the Reds have pumped seemingly most every dollar made from these players right back into payroll and player development. Do you think the old regime would have ponied up for Votto, Phillips, or Bruces' contracts?
No one is beyond reproach, but I think you are barking up the wrong tree with that statement. Its about winning.
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Cincinnati Bengals - None
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
