    They shouldn't have any trouble getting Barry to say something "quoteworthy".

    Comparing Jimmy Haynes contract with this decision about Barry Larkin is just stupid. Please give me even a little bit of correlation.

    I'd settle for that

    Re: AP is reporting that Larkin is not coming back...

    Can someone please explain to me why it's so important the Reds cut ties with Barry Larkin. Is it that important that Juan Castro stays on the team? Because I can't find where Barry Larkin is holding back playing time or a roster spot from anyone worth half a nickel.

    I missed the conference. Anyone want to summarize?

    What? To get someone to say one thing that they can take out of context to jazz up an otherwise straightforward and completely sensible press conference?

    Then don't rag O'Brien for how long the press conference was.

    Are you John Galt or John Allen?

    Good. They are far better off without Larkin.

    I wasn't....I was just surprised it was that long -- I wasn't sure what sort of format it was going to be going into it - I thought it was just going to be a statement or something at first more than a press conference

    Yeah, Larkin had been holding this team back from winning for years.

    Definitely not John Allen. I wouldn't touch that job with a ten-foot pole.

    For now, but they've been pressing their luck the last 4 years :MandJ:

    But I don't have to work for them. That's what amazes me. Larkin was THAT loyal, even to an organization led by Allen that doesn't appreciate him one iota.

    It's a compliment to lark, not a slam.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
