Reds Fans Gather at Great American Ballpark to Protest, Chant “Sell the Team”

Chicago Cubs

Coming soon to a ballpark near you?

This evening at Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati, a small but dedicated group of fans is protesting the organization’s recent dismantling of the roster, from dumping Wade Miley on waivers to the Cubs, to trading Sonny Gray to the Twins, to trading Jesse Winker and Eugenio Suarez to the Mariners, with more likely to come.
