For my 1000th post I thought I would share a prank that I did not do nor do I intend to do. I had a thought after it was released that the Reds may go to arbitration hearings with Aaron Harang. This was to make a post that Harang was traded and then after everyone went nuts, I would post an article from 2003 from when Harang got traded to the Reds. I'm sure it wouldn't have been taken real well but it's funny enough that I thought I would at least still share the story.

You would have lost your ORG Status in record time.

Grady Hatton still has over 250 rep points, even after that little prank.

BTW - I don't recall ever seeing another post from Grady.

It's not too soon to start planning something special for April 1, 2007. :evil:

Someone who has been here a lot longer than you did something similar a few years ago concerning Barry Larkin. It didn't go over well at all. People wasted their time searching for the story elsewhere and were not happy. I think this individual would advise you against it. But do what you gotta do- just be prepared to not be taken seriously afterwards.

It would have highlighted the meaningless nature of post count totals.

Probably not a good idea. I seem to remember some idiot making this post (http://www.redszone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=38698&highlight=dunn)a few years ago which was not well received.

Interestingly Grady's rep has taken a little hit today (a year and a half after the fact). He's down to 236.
