At first you had me, but what has really gotten me is the fact that it is already April 1st. Where has the year gone?

As soon as I saw who started the thread I knew it was bull. :)

Change the title to someone in the division, like the Cubs.

My first thought was that it was the thread from last summer on Scott Dunn's departure being re-animated by a troll who shall not be named.

L.A. is more believable since there have been rumors about trading him there.

Funny, GAC! I told the guy at Dairy-Mart this morning, while getting cup #1 of java, the same exact thing! He is a big fan and we tend to talk baseball when he is working. He got angry... grumbled about being fed up with the REDS management.

Then I said, April Fool's Day!" He laughed and took it well!

To sell a proper AFD thread you need a dateline and several creative paragraphs. Include bogus quotes from the GM, player, etc. (I was thinking more along the lines of Jason LaRue getting dealt, but I was too lazy to seek out teams in need of a catcher and what prospects they had to offer)

What a roller coaster ride of emotions! I'd want to shoot you :bigboom: , but I"m so relieved to have been duped that I don't care...Darn you, GAC! I have to admit my heart was in my throat. That was a good one, but don't do it again. :clap:

OMG THIS IS SO AWFUL WHY IS DAN O BRIEN DOING THIS?! WHO'D WE GET BACK?! ENCARNACION?!? SON OF A !! AHH21!1!~!


Oh wait.

Yeah, good one. But the new mouse over effect (on the thread title), saved me from having a heart~attack.

Have to admit the first thing I said when I came onto the site and saw "Dunn traded to LA" was s*@t!!! I didn't even remember it was April 1.

I actually felt my blood pressure go up in my head. I was so mad it was unbelievable. You are not right. It reminds me of the famous Sports Illustrated spoof that they had years ago about the pitcher for the Mets that could throw 130 MPH. I believed that too. Of course I was around 16 at the time.

The only reason I doubted the story, even before I linked onto the thread, was the thought that if Dunn really was traded, the whole board would go down and it would be several days before I could access RedsZone. Heck,if the Reds traded Dunn, my computer might explode.

haha, funny man, funny. I was stunned when I first read it, then remembered it is April 1.

It makes me realize just how bad things are when I didn't even bat an eye after reading the title of the thread. It was like a wreck, I only looked to see how much carnage there might be.

Okay, whoever wrote this can now go to hell. I was in a moment of shock, anger, and sadness all at once. :)

If Dunn ends up getting traded, I'm BLAMING GAC!!!!

And I might add that Chip will get some blame too, since he made this a sticky, giving it credibility

I was at the game today. No Adam Dunn in sight, not even on the bench. So, I come back from the game, see this thread.....of course I think it's true.

Actually, when I read the thread and saw it was a sticky and all the replies, you should have heard the words coming out of my mouth loudly and someone asking me, "What's wrong"

Good idea at making that a "sticky" Chip. It added to the effect!

This is the Reds, it's not how many minor leaguers, it's how much CASH
