Lonnie Wheeler says, "Take this, Big Trade Haters!"

Wow, Lonnie Wheeler really took a swing at the fans in the Cincy Post. While I feel like he makes a strong case in the way he has laid his case out, I feel like it is too this-then-that. I agree any moves you make effect the current organizational outlook, and could dramatically effect the future, but, I think that he takes it too far. Everything he says is true. But, unless a move is made as an obvious set up for another one, you have to look at the move on its own. So, Lonnie, for what the trade was, it was still a bad one.

JD -

Oh wow, this is just hilarious timing:

In turn, the rookie contributions of Mr. Hamilton have come at a substantial savings when compared to the $17.5 million that Mr. Kearns will be paid over the next three years. Those savings have become available to the franchise for the purchase of such players as Mr. Jeff Conine and Mr. Mike Stanton

Bwhahahahahahahaha, thank goodness Wayne Krivsky had the foresight to essentially cut Austin Kearns so that we could afford Mike Stanton. Are there sportswriters so willing to choke down failure in every city, or is this just a Cincinnati phenomenon?
