My opinion from the start has been this trade will eventually go down as one of the worst in franchise history.
and what do we need this year. A Big bat might have pushed this team over the edge.
Can anybody honestly tell me they dont like this lineup better than what was presented to us day in and day out this year.
2. Brand phillips
3. Joey Votto
4. josh hamilton
5. Scott rolen
6. Jay bruce
I think with that lineup We are still competing in the NL central.
And with the addition of a legit leadoff man, and a good riddance to Gonzo contract. This team is looking stellar.
