Re: Don't Trade Randa !
Randa has been a solid vet for this team. A stabilizing influence, solid defense, and more offense than what I thought they were going to get from him. A reliable player.
If this season hadn't gone down the toilet so badly, Randa would have proven to be a valuable player down the stretch. Plus has given EE time to play at AAA without pressure to bring him up. One of the few good off-season moves DanO made.
But the guy is 35 yrs. old and has a 1 year contract. Who's to say he'd *want* to come back to the Reds next year? I can see a multiple teams bidding on his services.
His value is at it's pinnacle now. The Reds would be foolish to not use him as a trading chip at trade deadline.
He will be one of those players that I'll think well of if he appears in GABP in an opponents uniform and will get applause from Roy. Class guy.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall
All you have to do is call...
