Is Herrara Replacing Gennett?
#1
I keep hearing talk radio shows saying to trade Scooter and put Herrara at second base. Scooter is a local guy from Lebanon, Ohio and trading him would be like trading Toddfather a few years ago. Scooter could get some good prospects and he may not repeat the season he's having. However, I'm tired of the lack of loyalty to players by ownership. I like Scooter and I hope he is not traded. I went to a game a few years ago and saw these kids with Johnny Gomes jerseys at the game. Soon after he was traded and I wondered what those kids thought. Scooter is a local hero to these kids and I hope management sees that.
Will you stand for it? It stands for us! WhoDey2

Well, as nice as a local boy is, the fans aren't coming out to see him. Attendance is down this year. So it's not like Aroldis Chapman, where people would come to the game specifically to see that player.

I don't think we should definitively trade Gennett, but if a great offer is made, the Reds should listen.

I'd also be happy to keep him if they are not offered a trade they cannot turn down.

Don't trade anybody. Scooter is playing a huge role in what is going on. Show a little faith in what it took lo these many years to put together. This team is blossoming in front of our eyes.

As to pitching, I think the young arms will continue to grow and we'll have a decent staff. With this lineup, decent is probably good enough. It's so much fun watching these guys and it's been a while since I could say that.

Have to agree with this 100%
