Lonnie Wheeler has a good column today about the Reds dynamic catching duo, Jason LaRue and Javier Valentin. They’ve been outstanding this year. I’m the first to admit that I didn’t think Valentin should have made the team out of spring training, and yeah, this is a fluke year for him, but I’m certainly enjoying it.
Our own Brian Erts had a good piece recently about the historic context of this season for LaRue and Valentin.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
