“We didn’t want to make a move just to make a move…”
Is this going to be another one of those trade deadlines for the Reds? Is Walt Jocketty and the rest of the Cincinnati Reds front office really content with what they have or will they pull the trigger and make the team even better? With more fans going to the park there should be some more money to spend in order to keep first place for the rest of the season. I know that many will jump in and say why jinx it by trading now? But, must I remind everyone what happened when the front office didn’t make any moves last time the Reds were hot? One or two more much-needed pieces will help push this team even higher up the rankings, plus a little competition for some position players like Drew Stubbs might help motivate them more.
So far there have been a few rumors surrounding left-handed lead off hitters but nothing solid. If the Pirates make another move to better their team before the trade deadline I think Walt will have to try to do something in order to keep up. But, those are just my thoughts.
Pssst, Walt! Make a move, I dare you. :)
