Isn’t that better? Sure it is…Need a little more? Look at that smile…Okay..Okay how about 6 million with another million in bonuses over the next two years? Better? Good deal…Hey that’s it, it was a GOOD DEAL. Everyone gets something, we didn’t break the bank, he’s even giving some of it to charity! The kids even win! This is the way it should be! You do have the right to be smiling.
I can’t wait to see if we do something else with free agents this off season, but if we do I hope it’s as good as this move and the Hernandez move. It really seems like we have our heads in the right place going into this new season.
1. Who led the majors in stolen bases last year?
2. Who did the Reds just sign to a two year contract?
Answer: Willy Taveras!
Now Walt…if your reading this…which I know you are…the fans are behind this one, but don’t think we’ve forgotten about everything else that’s on the table.
He can be our man in left field, I’m not a huge Dickerson fan I’ll admit. We have room for Dickerson on the bench, so please tell me Walt that you haven’t blown our budget on Taveras. If that was the plan loosen up the purse strings a bit Walt you’re going the right way just keep going!
Bruce in right, Taveras in center, Hairston in left. That makes an outfield I can be proud of. With a little work on the infield it will be a whole new ball game for the reds.
Tell me what you think?
