Could the Reds have found a better way to spend it in 05? Probably not.
Pretty well sums up my feelings. Other name FA's weren't going to come here, so might as well roll the dice and see what Milton can do for a couple seasons.
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Cincinnati Bengals - None
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
