Re: Jayson Starks Top 10 to watch as the trade deadline approaches
O'Brien is a mess. This team juat is not close right now. They need to rebuild and add as many good young players as possible. Opening a spot to allow a young guy to play also has value for the Reds right now. Keeping an overload in one area also does not help. O'Brien just does not get the concept of rebuilding and opening spots for guys. Yes its tough to give up good players, but they are currency to be used to add for the future.
A side note, how much does the Reds possibly being for sale effect this inaction? Could the lack of movement also be driven by the fear of devalueing the CURRENT franchise value at the expense of the future.
