"He's still soft and gutless, and the Reds are too far back for this to make any difference."

Yep.
That's unfounded opinion based on rumor and hearsay, but you're certainly entitled to think that way if you want.


The Reds got an effective LH starter without adding payroll, giving up top prospects, or trading away anyone on the ML roster. That's a fantastic deal any way you look at it.
