Anyway, with this trade, we don't have our 'MVP' anymore, and will have no real run production anymore. Forget about fun with this team for this year or the next 3 years.
You mean to say that until today, you were still holding out hope for next year? Why?
The more players the Reds dump in the next few days, the more convinced I'll be that they've realized it's time to rebuild. It was time to rebuild before this year even started, but the stupid Bowden 2003/new park declaration put it off. I hate to sound so pessimistic, but at this point (well, before this week) anybody who thought this team had a snowball's chance in hell of making noise next year was deluding themselves.
