Re: Reds Acquire Gabe White
Bringing back old players when they lose their value is folly. We need to look to the future. Giving up young players for an old one only works when the young one is Joe Blow and the old one is Barry Bonds...
You can't have it both ways. You can't blast management for not going out and getting help and then complaining that the help is "too old". If you want to make a playoff push you have to get veterans in here. Also, Manning isn't one of O'Brien's "guys". Maybe O'Brien has some guys he wants to put in Manning's spot. Either way I like this White deal. People hated that the Reds tore the bullpen up last year and now don't want some of the same players from that same bullpen. You get Gabe White in here and Sullivan and Leskanic and I think that would go a long way towards shoring up this bullpen.
