Last guy to walk away from money that I can recall was Gil Meche.
Michael Cuddyer a couple weeks ago.

Worried about you guys and your reading skills...you're getting as bad as me...  ;)

Welch mentioned Cuddyer and excluded pitchers with injuries...Meche was an injured pitcher.

(I don't know why Michael Cuddyer retired,  because he was supposed to make more in 2016 than in 2015...$12.5 million. Can't think of another player who did not try to hang on...and on...except for injured pitchers)

Do the Reds try to salvage the deal by making it Chapman for some of the prospects they would have got in the Philips deal?

Lol, if we were willing to give up Chapman level prospects for Phillips, Rizzo should never have a job in baseball again.

Phillips is strictly Read or Jefry Rodriguez territory.

It's especially hard to be funny on a forum that censors freak with freak and crap with crap

It's a setting, dumbass.

Phillips was on twitter on Thursday night when the trade surfaced.

Since then, pretty much not a peep.

Ken Rosenthal ‏@Ken_Rosenthal  1m1 minute ago
Sources: #Nationals moving on from Phillips, pursuing other options. Kendrick could be one; a trade could be another. Murphy low priority.

I was thinking the same thing.   My grandfather used that adage all the time.   The other was, "Either "crap" or get off the pot."

:phew:

Hope Rizzo and the Lerners got tired of the "hostage" thing.   It didn't work with Papelbon and it wouldn't work with Brandon either.

I'd say sign Johnson and focus on a lefty outfielder.

It sort of sounds that way, the way Rosenthal worded it.
