No Burrell For The Reds..Give Us A Sign Walt…

Walt…Can I call you Walt?

Walt…we let Pat Burrell
slip through our fingers Walt…What’s going on?

It’s not so much that you decided not to go with Burrell, I’m sure you had your reasons.  The reason you have on record though is that it was because he was asking for too much money.  After reading Mark Sheldon’s article about Jocketty’s response I know it’s true.  Walt didn’t think he would go for half of his asking price.

8 million a year is too much Walt!?!  The Rays get to walk off with him for two years and 16 million.  Are we not going to sign anyone else of note this off season Walt?  If so, then you’re really taking this rebuilding thing as slow as possible.  I mean turtles go this fast.

Walt, you got us a catcher, you got us a lead off man and a center fielder.  You even made one of the better bull pens in the game slightly better.  Why did you lay off on this one?  This was the batter you were looking for?

Talk to me people about the Pat Burrell signing..Walt just makes me feel like…well like I’m just talking to myself!

    Sorry about Burrell. I had a feeling he’d go to the Rays (well, I also thought Giambi might end up there too). It’s always so disheartening when your team doesn’t get the player you want. But there are still great people out there. Is Abreu a possibility? He was an RBI machine for the Yankees.

      I was focused on us getting Burrell, and yes Abreu is a possibility, but really I’m looking for a strong HR guy not so much an RBI man. Don’t get me wrong I’ll take what I can get at this point. I’m still working on having faith in Walt’s calls for players. We’re just so focused on getting a positive season it isn’t funny.

      Thanks for commenting!

      The talk around reds country is that we don’t want a superstar, we want to be this little rising rookie team. All speed, great defense, good offense. That you’ll never see one of our guys in a home run derby ect, but we’ll be on web gems all the time. I don’t know how much reality that really is, but it’ll be fun to watch.
