    I woke up this morning, got to work and pulled up the Enquirer newspaper on line....
    Then promptly dam near choked on my orange juice with excitement! FINALLY! And they called up another lefty... maybe the FO is finally getting it??? I don't know, I won't get my hopes up...

    As a Reds' fan, I feel that I've earned the right to take joy in Jimmah's dismissal.

    But then, that's just me, I also make fun of my co-workers.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Re: God Bless America.........haynes News

    [QUOTE=Far East]Haynes may just call it quits. I recall in the late 50's the Reds releasing veteran LHP Art Fowler. Upon being told of his release, Art said something like, "If I can't make this pitching staff, I don't belong in the game!"

    QUOTE]

    If you can't make this pitching staff....you MUST be bad!

    When you are #1 in the HISTORY OF MLB at anything, its quite a feat. Jimmy has the highest career ERA of any pitcher that ever lasted for 1,000 IP in the history of baseball. I think we should all take a moment and reflect on that monumentally dubious achievement and think about the scope and depth of the words" in the history of MLB".

    Over 120 years, thousands of pitchers, hundreds of thousands of innings pitched and none was ever worse than Jimmy Haynes.

    Needless to say, I personally would give my 6 year old daughter a better chance to be signed by another team this year than Jimmy.

    This is a major step for the organization with the recogination of "sunk cost" Given Dan O some credit for convincing Allen et. al. of this fact.

    Jimmah was the very definition of putrid, but that will remain the all-time Redszone classic thread.

    I don't feel sorry for anyone playing a game who banked a 5M contract and cashed in the paychecks.

    ...and given how desperate the Reds staff had been in recent years with no big name signee on the horizon, I fell for the bait by wanting him resigned for 2yrs/2M per after the 15 win mirage :dflynn:

    I would take the punishment of having five Jimmy Haynes type pitchers in our starting rotation ANY DAY versus what I saw that Mr. Berg guy go through in that video showing his beheading. For anyone else that has seen the video, are you having problems like me in not being able to "get that image" out of your head? Very disturbing, and stupid of me to even look at the thing.
