Re: Reds front office mismanagement and the enigma of Wily Mo Pena
Thanks for the info, CE, and I was unaware of the specific rule.
In that case, disregard the bulk of what I stated above in regards to renegotiation his deal. In fact, with that being the case, I'd have been all in favor of moving Pena as quickly as possible after acquiring him in 2001. Of course, Bowden failed to act and this is what we were stuck with. And when O'Brien failed to clear up a spot after 2004 by not acting on Casey, well ... we all know what we got out of that lack of a deal.
