CINCINNATI - A group led by Rick Steiner recently acquired a unit in the Cincinnati Reds.

Included in Steiner’s ownership group are Jim Miller, Rocco Landesman, Gary Rabiner and Dale Rabiner.

Reds chief executive officer Bob Castellini said, “We are proud to have Rick and his group as our partners. They love the game of baseball, love Cincinnati and are lifelong Cincinnati Reds fans.”

Steiner said, “We all have had a lifelong passion for the Reds and are thrilled that Bob Castellini invited us to sit on the ownership bench. We look forward to watching our great fans cheer on the revitalized Reds.”

I assume this is good. An olive branch from Castellini to the ownership group that came in second. I hear that Steiner understands marketing and that kinda stuff.

I view this as yet another positive in this cinderella rejuvinization of the Reds :beerme:

And for the 7th Inning Stretch, instead of Take Me Out to the Ballgame/God Bless America, the Reds will have a 7 year old kid singing...



The sun'll come out
Tomorrow
Bet your bottom dollar
That tomorrow
There'll be sun!

Just thinkin' about
Tomorrow
Clears away the cobwebs,
And the sorrow
'Til there's none!

When I'm stuck a day
That's gray,
And lonely,
I just stick out my chin
And Grin,
And Say,
Oh!

The sun'll come out
Tomorrow
So ya gotta hang on
'Til tomorrow
Come what may
Tomorrow! Tomorrow!
I love ya Tomorrow!
You're always
A day
A way!

Perhaps Cast, no spring chicken, is already putting in place a succession plan.

I hope this doesn't mean a sale of Adam Dunn to the Yankees to finance this producer's latest project.

After the announcement, Steiner climbed the turnbuckle shouting: "You want some? Come get some! You don't like me? Bite me!"

Then he cheap shotted RCast.

I think it's great that Rick's involved. Just don't let Scott in. He's crazy.

I hear Buff Bagwell's thinking of buying some shares as well. The Reds will then be re-named the nWo Wolfpack.

That's exactly what I was thinking.

Hopefully. Get the guys in place, show them how you are being successful, and then hand if off when you are ready.

Nice. Very nice.

Wasn't this group one that was originally interested in the Reds but lost out to Castellini and Co.?

Yes it was. Maybe he wants more owners with money thats willing to help him spend. This way he now might have more free cash to use on payroll or on draft.
