Re: Lidle traded
While I find it funny that O'Brien keeps cutting loose the few guys he just signed in his own "administration," I do think this move was wise in light of Lidle's poor performance.
The Reds need "cap space." They must sign real pitchers who cost money. At this stage, I would have given Lidle away to save the remainder of his salary. The money can and hopefully will be put to use in the off-season. Whatever these youngsters provide is an added plus.
The real test of O'Brien will be this off-season. He better do something.
