    Maybe they were just too expensive for the Reds, they aren't and never will be big spenders.

    Reds have to find, project, and develop, not outbid.

    Glad we didn't sign him. A) Catcher's are nearly as risky as pitchers and a much smaller payoff, B) He's a younger brother, typically not as motivated C) He's 16 and 200lbs. Guys like that peak to early.
