Re: Trade: Wily Mo to Red Sox
Personally I like the trade, which I know puts me in the minority. I was looking forward to seeing Wily Mo Pena playing everyday, but at first glance I like the trade. The Reds offense is good even without Pena. What needs to get better is the pitching as we all know. Although Arroyo will never win a Cy Young, I don't believe we could have got more for Wily Mo.
I try to look at our players objectively and not overvalue, which sometimes people tend to do.
I refer to past statements from Marty Brenneman, if the GM (Krisky) could have made a better trade he would have. This was the best he could get.
Plus, I think the Pena's (not) playing in the WBC, rubbed the Reds the wrong way.
