    The Reds have Allen Craig and Matt Adams?

    Not sure.. But if you read reports.. The Reds tried to sign Pujols prior to signing with the Angels. They then used that offer to lock up Votto.

    The Cards did not "off load" Pujols. They offered him a contract which he turned down.

    He was off-loaded in the same manner that the Reds off-loaded Pete Rose

    the cards reaped most of the benefits of pujols productivity which the angels subsequently paid for

    The equivalent of not giving Votto his contract and letting him walk for the Cardinals would have meant never signing Pujols to the 7 year deal they gave him in 2004 and letting him walk when he was first free agent eligible.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I didn't even know that was the Pujols comp pick.

    Why not just get a Wacha for Arroyo instead?
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    If the Reds had wanted Michael Wacha, they could have drafted Michael Wacha.
