About The Author

I've been a Reds fan since the late '60's, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in '84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in '90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.

    I wouldn’t mind his staying if he wasn’t so much of a whiner. I appreciate his desire to play but he has a role.

    It didn’t help when he hit the pop up in his first AB last night. He was walking back to the dugout before it came down. Whines then doesn’t hustle. Great combination!

    I think Aurilla is one of the veteran players that knows that he doesn’t have that many years left. He wants to play for a winning team w/ a chance at the World Series.
    Your point about him being a whinner is well taken. He comes off that way. I can’t blame him for wanting to be on a winning team, but he doesn’t have to sail all his dirty laundry into the media. He’s been around long enough to know better.

    Padres wish they had dealt for him after seeing him go serious yard today. What a shot!

    This is quite foolish. Why didn’t Aurilia go anywhere? Who cares if another team didn’t give up their top prospect for him….on Sunday, you get what you can get because Aurilia is not taking the Reds to the playoffs this year and he isn’t going to play for them at all next year. With a contract less than a $million, I can’t see him passing through August waivers.

    Another bad move (or non-move in this case) by O’Brien.
