AHH, don’t shoot the messenger!
CNNSI’s John Donovan says the Reds and White Sox need to make this happen
The Reds need a hand, too, but unlike the Sox, they’re in such bad organizational straits right now that it’s going to take much more than a strategic roster move here or there to get them out of the ditch. It’s going to take an overhaul, a complete change of attitude. It should start with one bold move: Cincinnati needs to trade Ken Griffey Jr
Has the past few weeks not meant anything? I know our season is down the tubes but doesn’t the past few weeks prove that with some decent pitching, this team can win games? If you take our pitching performances over the past month and multiply them over the long haul, this team is contending for the wild card.
The Reds are playing a lot better than the Sox right now. Cincinnati has gone 23-14 since the break. No National League club has scored more runs in the past six weeks. The Reds have pounded out 67 homers since the break, 19 more than the second-place Cubs, and in two fewer games.
So why do the Reds have to make this move?
Sometimes, things just make too much sense to happen.
