Every few hours I log onto redzone...hoping that the Reds have done something. I, like most of the rest of you, started out hoping that they would sign a couple of free agents who might fill the holes that could make this team a contender. I honestly believe that they are not that far away. No starting pitcher (Jason Schmidt, Mark Mulder), closer or decent hitting/ outfielder (Trot Nixon, Dave Delucci, Craig Wilson) signed. I then started hoping that a trade might land someone like Jake Westbrook. No such luck. Now we are reduced to waiting around hoping that the Reds will just do the common sense thing and sign a very good pitcher like Aaron Harang to a long term contract! You know, at the very least keep who they've got! Why can't this team ever seem to have enough sense to do the right thing. Harang has, in fact, asked for a very reasonable salary...and yet, the FO has to counter with a more thanridiculous counter offer. they should appreciate the fact that Harang is trying to be fair and decent...and get to work on a LTC! Every day the clock is ticking, and the Reds are ticking me off!
