I was torn between voting for the acquisition of Latos and the acquisition of Chapman. I finally voted for neither.
I voted for the acquisition of Rolen. My reasoning was that I
would have made the deal for Latos if I had been the Reds GM and I
would have signed Chapman if my owner turned loose the necessary cash, but I
would not have traded for Rolen.
I thought Rolen had nothing left at the time Walt acquired him and that the move made little sense, because the Reds will still several players away from contention.
I was wrong.
I like having a GM who is smarter and more knowledgable than I am.
