Hopefully I can eat crow later this week but this is what we will hear by the weekend. Walt-We were in on many deals but just couldnt get it worked out. We still have all off-season to get it worked out though. Then come Spring Training Walt- We were close to making some big deals but they just didnt pan out. Then we will sign 80 year old William Shatner to be our shortstop/left fielder. In August when we are 14 games out we will wonder why yet again our front office did nothing. Will the Reds ever have an owner with deep pockets? If you can't afford to improve your team then sell it.
