A little over a week ago, our Cincinnati Reds decided to not bring back our career .245 hitting center fielder. And as it was expected, the fastest man in baseball was able to quickly find a new home.
It was fun getting to watch Billy making plays in the outfield and on the base path the past few years as a Red. But honestly, I’m kind of relieved that we’re getting rid of this headache at the plate. Sure, he was a fan favorite in Cincinnati but it’s hard to stay in love with a guy who never hit above .260 in a full season.
Good luck to you in Kansas City, Billy. Maybe you’ll find your swing, or any swing at all.
But let’s not end this on a bitter note. Let’s remember Billy for all the cool shit he did for us.
