Ha! Are you kidding me? Whatever ends up happening this year, you have to say one thing: The Reds are taking their shot this year! I love it.
I wonder who are on some of the PTBN lists (including the Phillips trade) but hopefully we won't lose much. But I like the aggressive nature of Wayne, and more importantly Castallini. It wouldn't make much difference to have a good GM if you had an owner that didn't allow him to make changes. We haven't added a bunch of salary, but we've added some, and you get the feeling Wayne has carte blanche to make as many moves as he sees fit. We've never seen anything like it in my 30-plus years following the Reds.
