Originally Published: February 10, 2005By John Manuel | Baseball America
The last link to the Reds' past -- a past when they were a contender for World Series championships -- has left the building. Cincinnati native Barry Larkin, who played for the Reds for the last 19 seasons and helped them win the 1990 World Series, was not re-signed and became a free agent. His departure completes Cincinnati's recent rash of changes, as the club has opened a new ballpark, overhauled its farm system and shed its signature player.
