Billy Hamilton is no longer a member of the Cincinnati Reds, and I’m pretty upset about it. Bill Lack joined me to discuss the Hamilton news, and to ruminate over what will happen if the Reds are unable to land any big-time new players before 2019.

    I think ppl get that. I think the consternation comes from being a bottom of the barrel org for the last 4 years, yet they increased the value of their aasset by 400 mil and they still cry poor. They charge major league prices for a AA product and still cry poor and say the fans have to show up to the games for them to upgrade players. They are starting to sound exactly like lindner and when Harvey, Hamilton and Holland are the only FA signings it’s going to be a tough sell.

    You could however borrow against the increased value of the stock and spend that instead. fwiw…

    Just goes to show you how great our team’s writers are here at the nation. Kudos Steve! I probably would not have caught Doc’s piece otherwise. I particularly don’t care for false vibrato mixed with pirate fandom in reds clothing.
