This shouldn't be much of a surprise. It would be hard to imagine new ownership keeping Wade around. Article says Tal Smith's going also; looks like a whole new organization coming in.

Wandy just became more available (and possibly cheaper). A or AA prospects?

If the Astros get smart too, it's going to be a tough row to hoe in the central.

Time to bring in Jim Bowden and Bob Boone.

They're moving to the AL.

That's what I get for posting on a layover after a 14 hour flight...

Radio shows down here in Houston are hoping that they'll now have a reason to plow out that hill in centerfield. (it was named after Tal Smith). Sure, it's unique...but it's still stupid.

Mlbtraderumors is reporting that one time Reds executive Scott Nethery is among those being considered for the Astors GM position.

Thank god. When I saw this thread back up top I thought it was to say the Reds were interested in adding Wade to their front office. :bash:
