    I know I left that door open for you, but with a new FO, I think cash considerations get a clean slate and the sins of the past are just that.

    How many scoffing at the $1.5 mil received from the Sox in thsi deal were upset about the reds wasting $1.1 mil on Womack?

    I don't disagree.

    Just saying that it seems a bit odd to dismiss the $1.5 mill in this deal, but get worked up over $1.1 mill being paid to Womack.

    We don't know the value of that $1.5 mill to this team any more than we know the value of Mystery Prospect whom people keep bringing up.

    the difference is we have to pay a waste of a roster spot, and even if the 1.5 mil essentially makes Womack free, well free crap is only slightly more palatble than crap you have to pay for. If they wanted to really make it bad, they could get two of him.
    Suck it up cupcake.

    That $1.5MM will pay most or all of the bonus paid to a first-round draft pick. Not that John Allen will allow it to be allocated that way, but still. However you want to think of it.

    I think there's an echo in here

    The 1.5 million made it a payroll neutral transaction. That was probably why it was included. Though if the Reds find the bottom line to be a bit looser than expected, maybe it can pay for the new buffet in the clubhouse
