    How does management actually.......

    .......pay players what they're worth? Get their money's worth in terms of performance?

    The Reds 4 highest paid players are all dead weight.
    1. Griffey
    2. Dunn
    3. Milton
    4. LaRue

    I'd love to unload all of them.
    Who's on first?

    My guess: Krivsky will make every effort to do so...

    Although he had an off year, how can you call Dunn dead weight?
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    He strikes out too much, he doesn't hustle, and his bat avg was too low.

    Oh..and he's solely to blame for the Reds not reaching the post season.

    Old management.. I am sure that is what you meant.

    Dead weight... a tad strong and probably written knowing that it might start trouble. Actually a tad strong is not a proper comment for this. Ridiculous statement is more deserving. Dead weight means NOTHING gained from these players. No hits, no HRs, no wins, no quality starts, no baserunners thrown out, no catching and calling well-pitched games, etc.

    Disappointed in certain players based on the value of their contracts? That is a different and better way to state this. It is not asking for trouble.

    Likley that 3 of the 4 will be Reds in 2007. There will be no market for Jr, Larue and Milton unless the Reds are willing to eat sizeable portions of thetr contracts.

    Might be nice to see the Reds have an extra 30 million plus to spend wisely if they could.

    Re: How does management actually.......

    What a player is worth to management involves more than what happens on the field. To the front office Griffey isn't dead weight, he's worth what they're paying him because of the revenue he generates for the team. He's easily the biggest name they've got, and he's a guy that sells merchadise, tickets, gets people to tune into TV and radio braodcasts, etc. You could argue the Griffey is worth more than what he's being paid, even if he is declining on the field. That revenue he helps bring in is what's going to help pay for whatever free agent pitcher the team signs to improve the club. There's more to putting a club together than "his batting average sucks, lets cut him".

    I saw him steal a puppy from an old lady, eat it, and then punch her in the mouth.
