It could be that the Reds acquired Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee for a couple of minor league prospects. :D
But I'm not holding my breath on that one. You are probably correct.

Double A or Rookie League? :lol:

Rookie League of course. You can't give too much for those two bums.

So in other words he actually hasn't been announced Player of the Month and we're just speculating. I realize he'll likely get it, but could we not have a thread title like "Jay Bruce Announced Player of the Month" when he hasn't been.

I agree on both counts. It's also possible that something else will be announced (a trade? I contemplated posting this tweet in that thread), but it seems a bit much to start a thread based on an ambiguous internet message even with the likelihood that it is referring to just this thing being announced.

Would Ramsey leave the scoop on a trade in waiting? It's got to be POM.

Really? a Trade? you've got to be kidding me. Look at the tweet and think for a second

Having overlooked the drawn out word "news," I suspect you're right. That said, there's really no reason on your response to me or the other poster, to kick right in to plain rudeness. It's still silly to create a thread stating a something has happened when, in fact, it hasn't happened.

I disagree, you guys did not think at all before posting. How's that my fault?

We used to have a policy around here that said that actual news should wait to be posted until there is an actual link to the article verifying the news. Even in this age of Twitter and Facebook, it's better to get an actual link before posting. This isn't a competition to get news out first. Waiting a few hours isn't going to hurt anyone and no one will think worse of you if you wait.

Here's an idea. How about you show some consideration, not post misleading thread titles, and quit acting like a jerk.

I don't understand why we have to wait when it is obvious what is going on. :confused:

Maybe my first post in this thread wasn't clear. Let me expand on the point that I was trying to make: if I were participating in this thread, I wouldn't be posting targeted insults at other posters.

There hasn't been an official announcement and, obviously, RedsZone is a place for posters with all sorts of different views and opinions to share these views and opinions in a civil and polite manner. Be respectful if you want to participate in these threads, please.

I don't think there's a problem with the thread. I do think the title is extremely premature based on the quoted message, however. It might be reasonably inferred, but far from definitive.

Let's hope you're more consistent in your waking up on the wrong side of the bed. You're very streaky.

I once woke up lying partially on the side of my bed. My left arm was under my body between my side and the wood frame of the bed. It had become completely numb. When I rolled over this arm flopped down on me. I grabbed it with my right arm but the arm was numb enough I could not feel my right arm grabbing it. Still half asleep I though someone had broken in and had tried to grab me. I lay there for about 5 seconds until I realized I has holding my own arm above me.

If anything good came out of this thread, it was this post. Hilarious visual here.

Oh, and Jay winning Player of the Month is pretty cool too.

Now I hope Joey wins it this month and then Jay wins it the following month and so on.The Reds just might have the two best players in baseball right now and for at least the next few years.

First off, congrats to Jay Bruce. Very well deserved honor.


I once woke up lying partially on the side of my bed. My left arm was under my body between my side and the wood frame of the bed. It had become completely numb. When I rolled over this arm flopped down on me. I grabbed it with my right arm but the arm was numb enough I could not feel my right arm grabbing it.

Back to the topic.

I may have that beat (ok, this doesn't beat yours, but I still gotta add my 'cool story bro')...on occasional trips to Atlantic City, I was saving money (read: too cheap) by sleeping in my car instead of a hotel room. I would fold the rear seats down so it was open all the way into my trunk. Then I would roll out a sleeping bag and slip in. Anyway, woke up one day and BOTH arms were asleep. I had to roll from side to side, arms flopping wildly, until the feeling returned to them. Took about 5 minutes. Weirdest feeling in the world.

Amazing that Votto didn't win the award at all last year when you consider his consistently excellent season.
