Well, the no transaction slump during Winter Meetings is finally over and all I can say is, Way to go Walt!! I knew you could do it! I know a lot of Reds fans are upset right now but these moves were needed for the big picture and I like them. RHP Alfredo Simon and RHP Mat Latos did great for the Reds but the Reds front office had to do something and I am glad they did it during the Winter Meetings, instead of waiting longer like they usually do. I will not go into detail about who the Reds got in the trades because to tell you the honest truth, I don’t know much about them just yet.
I just wanted to write my support for Walt Jocketty and his front office and thank them for finally making some noise during Winter Meetings. Great work Reds, keep it up!
I just have to add this quote. It really made me happy to be a Reds fan and I have a little more respect for Walt Jocketty now because of it. “I remember as a kid this was always a fun time as a fan to watch the activities of the Winter Meetings to see what was going on. I’m sure this is stirring up a lot of interest in baseball, which is great for our industry.” Reds’ Meetings moves open door for future additions
