GM Neal Huntington is happy with weekend performances
Depsite losing 2-of-3 from the Reds, General Manager Neil Huntington is pleased with their performances and what they have seen this weekend.
“We’ve battled back against some playoff-caliber teams,” Huntington said. “It’s a great sign. We’re continuing to fight and compete. Cincinnati is fighting for its playoff lives. It’s a test for our young players.”
Huntington is also very happy with the performance from the young bucs.
“What’s exciting is that it’s [Andrew] McCutchen, it’s [Jose] Tabata, it’s [Neil] Walker,” he said. “It’s guys who are going to be important pieces for us going forward.”
The most important thing though, is for the young team to learn how to win.
“At the same time, we have to play the game the right way,” Huntington said. “We’ve got to have the foundation in fundamentals. As always, we’ll look at various places where we can upgrade. We have to be smart about how we use our resources. We can’t just throw [millions of dollars] at somebody just to make ourselves feel good.”
