"I know it was a painful decision and it pains him now," La Russa told the Post-Dispatch. "He deserves what he got. He earned it. There's no bad guy here.

Leave You With a Smile

Walt Jocketty is Having Problems Improving the Reds

Frustrated by this Reds off-season? You have no idea. I’ve felt all along that based on the nucleus the Reds have in place, and relative MLB experience; 2012 would be the Reds ‘all in’ year. I’ve stated it multiple times. With Albert Pujols leaving St. Louis and Prince Fielder leaving Milwaukee–along with the problems that may arise from Ryan Braun’s 50-game suspension–this...
