Re: Jim Bowden on Cold Pizza
While it may look like a bad deal on the surface, you gotta take into account the lackluster performance of the Reds' staff over the past decade. How much more ineptitude can Reds' fans handle? I don't know how much longer I could stand those high scoring games that the Reds constantly lost. We have enough hitting, but surely the same couldn't be said for our pitching. We needed some change and while this deal may have been a reach, you need to pull the trigger when this kind of opportunity is afforded to a team. Only time will tell the success of this deal but if Arroyo can pick up that K-rate and consistently keep the ball in the park, than I think many Reds fans will eventually become satisfied with this deal.
