For better or worse, Scott Rolen and Miguel Cairo are no longer members of the Cincinnati Reds. While each had their ups and downs, no one can argue the fact that both men contributed mightily (at times) to this franchise’s return to prominence. I choose to remember both their careers with the Reds fondly.
Over at C-ing Reds, Tara has taken a look at the Reds in what they call the “Post-Rolen, Post-Cairo era.” It’s worth a read.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
Chad launched Redleg Nation in February 2005, and has been writing about the Reds ever since. His first book, “The Big 50: The Men and Moments That Made the Cincinnati Reds” is now available in bookstores and online, at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and wherever fine books are sold. You can also find Chad’s musings about the Cincinnati Reds in the pages of Cincinnati Magazine.
