LaRue on to Bigger and Better Things. Well, Different Things, Anyway
On Monday, November 20, 2006, Marc Lancaster reported on his blog (and a Royals press release confirmed) that the Reds traded Jason LaRue to Kansas City for a player to be named later:
According to a baseball source, the Reds are on the verge of trading catcher Jason LaRue to the Kansas City Royals. The Reds will receive a player to be named later. No cash involved in the deal.
Later, we found out that the Reds did actually send a mystery amount of cash along with LaRue.
Even though he fell out of favor with some of the more fickle fan base, a whole lot of people always liked him. We at RHM wish LaRue the best of luck and will be watching his progress with the Royals with much interest.
