Reds Management Finds Wallet

Posted by Matt on November 23, 2007


In a stunning turn of events this offseason — a ride that started with the Redlegs finally signing a “big-name” manager in Dusty Baker — the management of Cincinnati’s finest baseball franchise just might have finally found their wallet that had gone missing for the better part of the last decade by agreeing to, in part, a four year, $46-million dollar contract with All Star Closer Francisco Cordero.

Francisco was second in saves last season in the National League and may, or may not, be worth the contract that he received; however, his talent is the farthest thing from what is actually on my mind.  What has me slightly intrigued is the fact that Reds’ management is at least showing that it might actually be willing to put forth the adequate amount of money to possibly develop a somewhat successful baseball team in “The Queen City.”

It is no doubt that the Reds have some young talent down on the farms but rarely do fans have much to be excited about during free agent signing periods and around the trade deadline.  However, the Reds have inked a deal with not only a big-name manager but also a high-dollar free agent at the fact that the Reds might be showing a little life in their back pocket gives us faithful followers at least a little something to be excited about.
