    He might have to spruce up his resume.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    They're going out on a limb by thinking that. They should branch out and look at some other prospects...

    Plus he could only lumber around the bases-true story and not pulp fiction. I will leaf it to others to suggest with which team he will land and take root.

    Rumor has it his minions are outside GABP, demanding his return. I fear their efforts will bear no fruit. But you never know: Knock on wood.

    His CV will never match that of former Reds HOFer Johnny Beech.

    I guess it's for the Reds' best interest to make sure he leaves the organization.

    Better than him riding the pine until he starts moping and being a stick in the mud.

    The question I have is that now that Trees has been cut from the organization, will Mitchell report on PEDs in the minors?





    What? No one said the puns could only be about his last name.
