Jr can say "trade me to Florida (or whatever) or I'm going to retire".
No one is going to do Bowden any favors. If Jr wants out, you can bet his team of choice will hold the Reds hostage, just like we did to Seattle.
I hope Jr doesn't want to be traded though. Despite the opinion of some on this board, dumping Jr and Larkin is not going to make us a better team, even if we can spend all their salaries on other players.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
