Reds - Dumped LaRue

Cincinnati Reds - Acquired a Player to be Named for C Jason LaRue and cash.

LaRue can probably still hit a little, but he’s breaking down physically and he’s not really a good defensive catcher anymore.  It’s obvious why the Reds did this - they prefer Ross and Valentin - but I’m not sure why the Royals did it.  The Royals should be paying something for LaRue and I don’t see a huge difference between him and John Buck, especially for a rebuilding team.  After all, it’s not like LaRue has a great reputation for working with pitchers as the Reds staff has generally been awful in recent years and then suddenly improved when an injured LaRue wasn’t a starter anymore.
