Re: Reds catching 2013 and after
I could have lived with a 50/50 split of playing time.
But couple the fact that he was maybe starting a third of the games along with his late season disappearance, and I'm not happy with the way he was handled.
Fielding the best 25 man is not always the best answer. I think an argument could be made that come last July Billy Hamilton would have been a better choice for the roster than Valdez. But you want your top guys to bloom in the minors and then
drop them into your lineup (or at least get a solid amount of playing time) when they are ready.
