    I don't know how to feel one hand: He misses way too many games, wouldn't go on the DL in July but couldn't play. Complains once healthy that he can't play. Wages his own pr war on the FO.

    On the other: Was the face of the Reds for the 90's. Can still field the position and can still be dangerous hitting.

    I imagine he will catch on with someone, just hoping the team is not in the NL central

    I've said it so many times before, but I can't really remember this team without Larkin on it. This is a sad day to me.

    Best wishes Barry.

    Seg Dennison interviewed him by phone on WLW. He sounded down...said he was disappointed...not bitter or angry...just disappointed. O'Brien and Miley called him 40 min or so ago and told him they would not be offering him a contract and asked if he had any questions. Barry said no and that, as they say, was that.
    teach tolerance.

    With Lopez/Machado/Freel/Jimenez manning the middle infield, there really isn't any room for an often injured SS who's 41. While it's sad, larkin would not make the 2005 Reds a better team.

    Princeton why do you keep insisting that Castro will be back?

    I just do not see it....unless it's at a lot less than he makes now.

    Yeah, it's not like this changes anything really. He won't be playing but the difference is we won't be paying him now too.

    In a sentimental way it's pretty sad. I would've liked to have seen him play a 20th season for the Reds. But the more I thought about what the team should look like next year, the harder it was to find a spot for him. Sad day, but the right call.

    I agree this is the right move for the product on the field. Would also like to see him take a front office job with the Reds and stay in the organization.

    Great career with the Reds, Barry. Thanks for the memories.

    it'll be interesting to see if a quiet, less than mediocre player that knows his role won't be more acceptable to management

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

    I'm upset because I think both the Reds and Barry are in the wrong.

    Barry is in the wrong for forcing the teams hand. The Reds have to play for the future.

    The Reds were wrong for leaving their captain hanging out to dry when it came to an answer.

    I don't like either group when it comes to this situation.

    and BTW - ESPN is now reporting that Omar Vizquel won't have his option excercised by the Indians.

    Today is the end of an era for Ohio SS.
