Would people quit this garbage? It's absolutely pointless.

We aren't general managers. We aren't associated with the Reds. Our trade ideas are a waste of time.

The only time trades should be talked about is
1) When they are rumored by sources such as newspapers and actual organizations.
2) When they actually happen.

That is not the way to make friends around here bucko. Unfortunately, while you may not enjoy the trade idea threads, there are many others that do, which I am sure you probably are getting from your negative rep.

Tip for next time: just don't read them.

Either that, or enjoy them for what they are: an insight to relative value of players, an attempt at bargain hunting and honing of eyes for talent, and an exciting game of "Call your shot."

You're call.

Are you just trolling for trolling's sake?

Trade rumors from here, especially from few people like Brookyln, Big Donkey and others I know I've left out, tend to be more factual based than anything you'd pick up in a newspaper in Cincinnati. I can't tell you how many times in the last three years I've read something here, only to see ESPN, the Enquirer or SI playing catchup a day or two later "breaking" the news.

Hey Junior, bad day in school?

Being the trademeister of the board, I like to put my baseball brain to work and just see how I can improve the Reds. I know my trade ideas are just that.....ideas but my love for the Reds is real.

So, when I have someone telling me what I should say and what I should post, I will just say you can kiss it where the sun doesn't shine.

Thank you for your submission. We regret to inform you it does not suit our present needs.

If people don't like to play general manager, then I guess there wouldn't be any fantasy baseball, football, etc. leagues. Heck, playing general manager is the reason I still play video games.

Well, I guess we should go ahead and close down the message board.

It's been fun.

He has a point. We aren't even on the Reds, so why are we talking about them? I guess that means I shouldn't talk politics anymore either; or women, not being one and all... hmmm...

So... uhh... white males living in Chicago; what's your take?

You can tell how old they are by counting the rolls of fat on the back of their necks and multiply each one by 11 years.

I like the beer smiley to offset the absolute moronicness of the thread... like, "oh, he is clinking beers... ill ignore his whole self righteous post and clink his beer..." Suuuure.

Just like Doog said in reply #1, don't read them if you aren't interested, but stop with the profanity and the attitude.

Here's a trade idea:

How 'bout ajmlx9 and a bag of balls to Colorado for Ryan Shealy? Heck, I'll even throw in Tony Womak to sweeten the deal. :thumbup:

Any takers?

Ajmlx9's rep looks like mine on the Raiders' board. :laugh:

I love the trade threads, and read them whenever I'm not staring at redsfan30's avatar.

I like to justify posting and debating as enhancing my mental acuity so that I am more productive and have more and better ideas in less time...or something like that.

The first step is admitting you have a problem.

I just read some of his posts.

wow.

I wish i could neg him again. Its ok to come in here and dislike a player. Its ok to come in here and be uneducated. It's not OK to spout quasi racist bile.

boot him.

Why don't we trade the "stop all post thread...." to the SOSH for a Sox v Tampa Bay game thread and a thread to be named later.

I use to hate the hate threads, but now I only hate those who hate the hate threads........well actually I love to hate the people who hate the hate threads.

Now that I think about it, I hate that I love to hate the people who hate the hate threads. But I am working on it.
