    Not shocking

    ....Sad, but not shocking.

    I wish this could have ended better, but I put blame on both sides....him for running his mouth and cancelling the day they had planned for him to leave on a graceful note

    The organization for just saying the hell with him and telling him to get lost

    A sorry end to a great career in Cincinnati

    I don't understand the news conference. Why would we hold a news conference saying that we aren't resigning someone?

    Will Uncle Carl step up to the plate... again?!? :mhcky21:

    The sooner a decision is made, the better... for the REDS, Barry, the fans and anyone else who gives a crap about this "situation".

    I wish Barry all the best... wherever/whatever he goes/does. I will always think of him as a REDS player... like Rose, Perez, Foster and Morgan.

    The explanation behind this move should be quite informative

    It'll be the old we're moving on speech....not sure why we have to hear it

    Stave off bad press, a good defense is a good offense.

    My thoughts exactly. My favorite player of all time. He deserved much better than this, but it's an opportunity where he can move on to an organization that will appreciate him as either a player, coach, front office guy or whatever.

    So, I'm happy for him. Why he was so loyal to this crappy organization is beyond me.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
