I wonder how many draft picks that 1/3 million we sent to Arizona is going to cost us?
Think if that money was available this year or previous years.
This SS kid probably has a good chance as any prospect, but I agree with M2, we should've gotten either a sure thing with the kid, or multiple prospects.
Remember the Neagle deal? That deal was supposedly going to reload us, and now we are down to hoping Willy Mo is able to stick in the bigs, because everyone else flamed out. Real close to an 0-for-4 there.
We dump Walker, then have to trade Dessens for Walker's replacement, and we try to trade Jr with no one in the wings to play CF. What the hell is going on? Oh yeah, salary dumping. This is what we waited 6 years for. The Reds had better make some moves that will actually help them win next year. John Allen promised that the new stadium would make us competitive. Time to pay the piper and start adding players instead of subtracting them.
