    This is the first legit trade for a major league caliber player using minor leaguers since the Greg Vaughn trade in 1999. This is the first trade for a legit major leaguer since the Ken Griffy trade in 2000. The Reds have tried the FA method, they have tried promoting from within, they have tried trading for scraps and turning them into good big leaguers, none of these methods have worked in the past 10 years. So the Reds go out and trade for a top 20 3b in the history of baseball, who probably has 2-3 productive years left and many are questioning the motives of the front office.
    Yes. I've seen him pitch. That's why I feel as I do. I expect someone who hasn't seen him pitch to feel the way you do.

    No. Scott Rolen does not have 2-3 productive years left worth trading away Zach Stewart, yet alone tossing in Roenicke and EE for free.

    Everytime Zach Stewart gets a Major League Win, remember what you said here, and remember that Scott Rolen will not lead this team to any playoff appearance, thus proving that acquiring him was an absolute waste of resources (Stewart, Roenicke, and EE), resources that could have gotten the team something else (EE), or be contributing heavily towards a divisional title in 2010-2018 (Roenicke and Stewart).

    You'll be beating yourself up every time some lame starter goes out there every 5th day from 2012-2018 when up in Toronto, Stewart will be going out there every 5th day giving the Blue Jays a chance to win.
