    Let's say RFS62 and SteelSD decided to gang up on Jung and beat the heck out of him. Could we then say....

    "RFS62 and SteelSD took turns alternatley hitting the Bong."

    ???

    OK, now let's say TeamCasey and TeamBoone are sitting at GAB watching the Reds warm-up. They bust out the binoculars but can't find Jung anywhere. Could we say...

    "TC and TB looked everywhere, but were unable to locate Bong."

    ????

    Should I stop now???

    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!

    I think we will need a separate thread -- and a sticky -- for the Bong jokes. It may be the only thing that gets us all through September.

    Excellent! More prospects coming!!:rock_band

    Well, for Haynes I'll take anything...I don't want to see him butcher more games every 5th day

    I tend to like it. Only time will tell, but I believe the idea behind it is for the best. A few more like this, and we are bound to come out with something good.

    A couple things:

    1. At first blush, I like the deal quite a bit. But everyone should remember that the Braves don't often trade away pitchers that pan out. Even the big exception, Jason Schmidt, took several years to blossom. For every one of him, there's several more Steve Averies, Bruce Chens, etc.

    2. Several posts here have said that Baseball America ranks Nelson as the Braves' fourth best prospect. I have the 2004 Baseball America and he's ranked as their THIRD best prospect. John Sickels gives him a "B," and he doesn't quite make the Top 50 pitchers in MLB on his list of prospects.

    3. I'll miss Chris and Catch 22!
    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

    So DanO's stock has gone up a couple points on the RedsZone Exchange? We need a graph on the home page to show his popularity rating.

    I think its a trade that will work out well for both teams. They both got what they wanted.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Sheesh - some of you people have NO idea. Don't forget that these players are PEOPLE too. Sure baseball is a business, but cut the guys some slack for being a bit dissappointed that one of their good friends was traded away. I don't think that by 'upset' that they are meaing that Casey and Larue are griping to the front office. Can they not be 'upset' that a good friend is gone?

    As much as Chris will miss Cincy, I really think that things could go well for Chris in Atlanta. At least he has more hope of making the playoffs :mhcky21:
    That would be fine if it stopped at that, Catch, but I will be surprised if Casey does not have another anti-FO quote or two in the paper tomorrow because one of his buddies got traded. Sure, Chris is a good pitcher and I'm sure he is a really great guy, but with each trade last year Casey got more and more vocal. Plus, the whining is done publicly with the clear intent of using the media to talk to the front office. Already, he and LaRue were public enough with their emotions that Brenneman made note of it. That is the wrong way to handle showing your disapproval of management.
