    Ok Walt-Yes-Man, what rules were broken? Have I said a player sucks? No, I disagreed with the trade and stated why

    Paying Soriano $12 million a year as a setup man?

    Because these posts, this one included, are incredibly childish.

    Other than Alonso (who as we all saw, plays terrible defense in LF), what holes are the guys we traded filling? Backup catcher? AAA reliever?

    And you have zero proof to support that assumption.

    Trading them to other teams to fill holes.

    We used all our AAA tradeable assets in one move

    I mean, if you guys want Willie Harris and Mike Costanzo as our LHB pinch hitters off the bench instead of Alonso, then that's your call

    We gave up the #3, #5, and #12 prospects in the organization. If you are saying that they are terrible and couldn't be moved to other teams, then the entire scouting department needs fired

    I think having a TOR quality pitcher is a higher priority than pinch hitter.

    So you'd rather have Latos in the rotation than Chapman?

    I'd rather have both pitchers in the rotation.

    Fair point.

    My point is, they were already grooming Chapman to move into the rotation prior to the 2012 season.

    I don't see the point in making the trade when they did unless it was going all-in this year.

    And now people are giving Latos a pass cause he's young. Sorry, when you give up as much as the Reds did, you can't afford to miss

    I still don't understand why you keep saying it was a move made for this year. That makes absolutely zero logical sense. They acquired him so they actually could compete for years to come. This will be the same team for years now.

    And again, it is far too early to be able to say they missed on him.
