Red letter day in Cincinnati

Cincinnati Reds president Bob Castellini and general manager Walt Jocketty have released a letter to the team's fans, basically apologizing for the club's disappointing performance and explaining why the front office decided to trade Ken Griffey and Adam Dunn.

If you want to read it, here's the letter in its entirety. Plug in Orioles in place of Reds and replace Ken Griffey and Adam Dunn with Miguel Tejada and Erik Bedard and you have basically the same letter Andy MacPhail sent to Orioles season ticket holders during the offseason...except the part about hiring Dusty Baker as manager.

Sometimes you have to take a couple steps back to make any meaningful progress. Hope it works out for both clubs, since both play in great baseball towns that deserve better than they've gotten the past few years.
