Reds - Acquired Conine
Cincinnati Reds - Acquired OF Jeff Conine from the Philadelphia Phillies for OF Javon Moran and IF Brad Key.
The Reds aren’t losing anything here in what they’re giving away as Brad Key’s an infielder who’s not good enough to play in the Midwest League and Javon Moran’s future is as a 5th outfielder for a team with some bad defensive players (hey, the Reds! Whoops). Where the Reds are losing is that Conine is probably going to take away at-bats from Chris Denorfia, who’s a better player, and the organization is too cowardly to platoon Conine with Hatteberg after Hatteberg’s fine season. Not that organizational cowardice is anything new - this is the team that boldly cuts Josh Hancock for being fat and Brandon Claussen for being injured but refuses to take any kind of a stand with players that the average talk radio casual fan has heard of.
Dunn-Griffey-Conine is a really comical defensive outfield - Eric Milton should sue the Reds for violating his rights under the 8th amendment.
Another thumbs-down for the Reds. Wayne Krivsky’s Problem Solving Policy remains “Look at team, identify hole that Marty Brennaman or Hal McCoy comically rant incoherently about, acquire the most famous, cheapest player Wayne remembers from when he was making Terry Ryan’s coffee or picking up Terry Ryan’s lunch from Gleuk’s on 6th Street with exact change and tip because Wayne can’t figure out what the numbers on different bills signify.
