Cincinnati Reds are still holding all of their off-season secrets very close to their vests. Which, as a Reds fan we have gotten very used to over the past few years. So when someone mentions the Reds in the news I am usually all over it, because let’s be bluntly honest, there is not much really going on with the Reds this off-season. Even the rumors are blah! I was searching through articles and found something that amused me so I thought I would share it.
“clubs have had to gulp and swallow hard just to stomach the idea of $200 million contracts (hello, Cincinnati and Joey Votto, who agreed to $225 million over 10 years, and Seattle and Robinson Cano, who made a deal for $240 million over 10 years). This Stanton deal makes the Reds and Mariners look like Walmart greeters.” Source
And that my friends is how slow the Reds off-season is right now. Come on Walt, do something crazy! Show these guys the Reds are not Walmart greeters!
