agreed...casey was an albatross.
i'm not opposed to moving dunn, but it's important to recognize that he's one of the premiere young power hitters in the league. can we get a top-flight pitcher for him? even some top-flight prospects?
the reds organization will be left to float through the remainder of o'brien's contract, but heading into the 2007 season, there will be an inclusive gutting. castellini has told some of my inside sources that he was appalled at the skeletal positions in the cincinnati front offices. they have half of the "normal" staff associated with an mlb team. devastating, but it explains a lot.
where is the peavy, santana, felix, kazmir, petit, or even bedard in the reds organization? we have the most paltry and ineffective scouting crew in mlb. the future is at least 5 years away. sadness.
