    Reitsma Traded to the Braves.

    Don't know any details. Don't know who he was traded for or with. Just know that it went down this morning.

    McKay McBride, McKay McBride....PLEASE!!!

    WOW, that's some crazy stuff. We've been calling for a trade of Reitsma since he had a lot of value and was in a position of excess for us...now let's see how well O'Brien did on the return.
    I'd like it to be a high ceiling SP prospect along with Wilson Betemit, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Forgot to add that I will miss Chris Reitsma. He was a class act and I'll miss his devestating change up. Hopefully he shared his knowledge of the pitch with several of our young pitchers while he was here. Best of luck in the future, Chris.

    Braves need a SU man and a "just in case" for Smoltz's iffy wing.

    Juan Cruz straight up please.

    I would be happy with a Juan Cruz straight up deal, or a McKay McBride, Jose Capellan + a talented postion player like Andy Marte.

    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!

    Is that a guess or are you hearing something?

    OMG!

    I hope we don't get screwed on this deal. Reitsma is a golden boy.

    One way to tell if this is true (and I do believe you, Catch22) is the board will always go down in the event of a trade!
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    Yeah, we'll be the guys sitting in front of the shack playing with our feet.

    Odds are that 1/2 will say we did, the other half will say we didn't.

    Get ready for an epic mental Badminton match.
