I can understand it....but if they can trade Aurilia, it would give Olmedo some playing time
I agree. I just don't see much use in playing Rich Aurilia. He's not gonna be here next year, Reds aren't going anywhere this year. You know what you've got in Freel, if he needs a day off see what you've got in Olmedo. Late in the game when Olmedo get's his pinch hit duty, give that to Aurilia. Does anyone know how Aurilia gets along with the team?
