The Reds are talking to Craig Counsell’s agent, to which I respond …
Craig Counsell? Really? He might be the nicest guy in the world and friends with Thom but c’mon. Jerry Jr. isn’t exactly an All-Star but he is much better (and six years younger) than Counsell. Even if he’s just a utility guy, that seems like a significant downgrade.
If you need a warm body who can play shortstop, there’s got to be someone else. Counsell had a career year with 26 stolen bases and 34 doubles … in 2005.
It would be nice to get a guy like Maicer Izturis. I know, dream on.
