Reds would only trade the vet relievers if completely out of it. Right now, the veterans in the bullpen are the main go-to guys and it is always risky to break in a batch of young relievers.
If the Reds stay reasonably close to contention for awhile, the best chance for the AAA relievers is an injury or if someone like Herrera or Massett flames out. They will stick with Lincoln who has a real contract and won't be so easily shipped out.
I was somewhat pessimistic even in s/t I think he was trying to be who he thought everyone wanted him to be with his demeanor, which he nailed. Too me it was just a matter of time if it wasn't a real change and looks like it could be the case. That said look at Josh Beckett the other night, he still has a serious attitude problem. The real problem is his 1st start he was exactly what he had been for so long last season being hittable. So am I starting to worry? Nope I never stopped worrying completely.
"You can't let praise or criticism get to you. It's a weakness to get caught up in either one."
You guys are just now starting to worry about him?
I say trade him for a RH power bat when his numbers come around.
Who's on first?
