The Reds have failed to reach an agreement with the Brewers about Matt Harvey.

I’m too disgusted and discouraged to summon even the slightest commentary right now other than to say that RISK AVERSION is knee-capping the Reds rebuilding. Oh, and by risk aversion, I mean succumbing to the weak good-feels (ownership and/or front office) from even vaguely not disastrous non-losing records.

The Reds are the guy in your fantasy league who won’t make a trade unless he’s convinced with 100% certainty it won’t turn out against him. 

P.S. That guy also never wins your fantasy league.
