    It will be an extremely sad for me if he retires. Not so much because I don't think it's time, but because he is my all-time favorite player. He is the most under-appreciated player in the history of the game.

    Barry is class and professionalism personified. He deserves so much better than what he's gotten from this organization (contract aside) in the twilight of his career.

    If it's retirement, I don't think I'll be able to hold back the tears.

    Just wondering, did it go this way ??????

    Lark asked for 1-year @ $500,000 and John Allen said, "No, we cant break the bank for you, Barry."


    The Reds are classless. No doubt. Period.

    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.

    John Allen is doing it, not Barry. It's coming on now.

    If Allen is making the comments then this will not be good.

    What a PR move... Throwing it all on Barry. WOW!!

    My guess is 1 Year 500k-750k. Knowing Barry would not accept. Allen is garbage.

    John Allen is an ass!
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    John Allen is awful in front of the camera. the guy has no emotion at all. I'm starting to wonder if the guy is anything more than a machine.

    This news conference is unnecessary and a slap in the face to Barry. If Allen remains with the Reds one more minute it will be too long.

    Allen said they offered Barry a one-year contract on Saturday and then Monday (to his agent) and then he spoke with Barry. Barry also spoke with Lindnder, but the Reds didn't change their offer, and Larkin continually rejected it.

    Barry declined the contract offer.... base contract BELOW major league minimum with incentives to be able to potentially double it.

    Why was this necessary, and why the hell is John Allen making baseball decisions?

    Does anyone else get the impression John Allen is actually happy about this.

    I know I'll root like hell for Barry no matter where he ends up.
