Couple of articles on the new ownership. One is from today’s Enquirer. The second one was from Friday.

I don’t know if they mean anything or not, but I do like the idea of an owner who wants to win NOW and makes no bones about it. And logic says that the only way to do that in the short-term is to spend money, so ….

    I think you are right Jim. The Reds will probably get a 1b in return for Casey. Dunn will stay in LF. I know I’m in the minority here, but I sure hate to see Casey go. Classy guy, good bat, pretty decent glove. He just can’t run and his salary is getting too rich for Cincy’s blood.

    Konerko dropped by for a few months around 1998 from the Dodgers and then was sent to the White Sox when the Reds got Casey from Cleveland.

    I hope you are right Chris. That O’Neill trade sort of set the modern standard for me as far as bad Reds trades go.
    The alltime bad Reds trade still has to be the Frank Robinson to Baltimore trade.
