I got this from Lance's site. It looks like Bronson wants to go back to Boston. Life is tough here in the 'Nati.

"I think I need to get back to Boston," he sings. I need to get out of Cincinnati, I think I need the Olde Towne to fill my heart again."

Okay? He can go back to being a middle reliever then..thats basically the only spot he might fit into there. They dont need another starter or anything. If he wants to go back to Boston, I think Kriv can make a phone call and we can get something good for him.

Shouldn't have signed that contract extension then...

We finally get pitching and they want out...sigh.

Fine, send him off next year and let's get a ton of high prospects in return. If Hammy can bring back Volquez and a minor leaguer, I'm sure Arroyo can bring back twice as much.

Hmmm...pleading his case in a song. Honestly, doesn't it sound like a guy making up a corny song to try to get his ex-girlfriend that dumped him to take him back even though she made it clear she doesn't want him. :)

Hamilton is really really good and grossly undervalued and underappreciated.

Poor poor millionaire, I feel so sad.

I agree Hamilton has a huge ceiling and is currently pretty good.

Hamilton also has a gigantic question mark over his head in the form of a possible relapse or constant injury. Hamilton's ceiling is much higher than Arroyo's, but Arroyo's in the prime of his career.

On top of that, #2/#3 quality pitchers are more highly regarded in this market than a CF (that probably should be in RF).

Can you blame him though? I mean, the Red Sox are consistantly winning. The Reds are not. Granted they have a few young guys ready to contribute, but that doesn't translate into instant winning. It may be another year or two. And now they seem to be going after Josh Fogg. Foff stinks. He never had success in Pittburgh and didn't have enough success last year to be worth what he's supposedly asking for.

Bronson is to the Reds as Corey Dillon is to the Bengals... just as things are starting to look really good (lot's of good young talent at the cusp of being major league ready), he pleads his case to get out.

I say send him packing and take his $***ty music with him. I don't think he is that great anyway. Use his money that will be freed up to get someone else that actually appreciates being in Cincy. Gawd another reason for me to hate the Red Sox...as if I didn't have enough reasons already!

Maybe someone should remind him of what happened the last time the Reds and Red Sox met in the World Series.

I honestly can't believe this is being discussed. If he's doing a concert in Boston, then of course he's going to insert those types of lyrics to get a reaction. I think for now he's content in Cincinnati. After seeing him interact with the other players at Redsfest, I really feel he and the other players are excited about the direction of the team. So, what, are you all going to boo him now because you read about some stupid lyrics he inserted into a song he sang at a concert in Boston about Boston? Yeesh.

Sorry I just hate the Boston Red Sox with a passion and hope they quickly become cellar dwellars.

I'd trade him to Kansas City and see how he likes it there... ;)

I said
I think I'll go to Boston
I think I need to come back
I think I need a ballpark
Where all the fans are there
I gotta get out of Cincinnati
I'm tired of the summer
I think I need the Olde Town
To fill my heart again
Ah yeah

Who cares what he said? I don't. I really hope something happens pretty soon so we can stop dwelling on this unimportant crap.

I cringed when I read those lyrics, and not because I'm concerned that he's homesick. I hope for Bronson's sake that his right arm stays healthy. ;)
