JD at Red Reporter (a superb Reds blogger, by the way) has this interesting take on Tony Blanco, the former Reds farmhand who was taken by our old friend Jimmy Bowden in the Rule V draft.
I agree with JD: I hope we get Blanco back at some point, and given the regulations regarding Rule V draftees, I wouldn’t be surprised if it happened.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
