    Great trade from DanO. Nothing like getting rid of surplus players while they still have some value.
    We got Bong and Nelson for a pitcher that relies way too heavily on his changeup and can't locate his fastball? GREAT GREAT trade on paper.

    There's only one or two pro sports teams I really despise. The Braves are one, the New York Giants are the other.
    Niners... gawd I hate the Niners and the Avalanche.

    but I think we got the good side of the deal from a baseball perspective, too.
    Are we still using that perspective when evaluating this team?

    I have this gut feeling that DanO isn't done dealing before the end of the season. Something tells me that he's now had enough time to become familiar with and evaluate players and now has an idea of what he wants to do.
    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 meant end of spring training, not the end of the season.

    And some people thought DanO couldn't pull the trigger on a deal.
    The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.

    Good. Maybe we can work a deal to send Haynes to Japan for some Japanese girls for Bong.

    for some Japanese cheerleaders for Bong.
    Because we all know how well the Japanese and Koreans get along.

    .
    I think Braves fans knash their teeth every time they trade
    a pitching prospect. I remember all heck breaking lose when
    they traded Rob Bell to us.

    They have a different mindset than us.. they assume every prospect is the next Glavine, Smoltz, or Avery.

    Bottom line is that the Braves org considered both these prospects to be future middle relievers. So it makes
    sense for them to trade up for a more sure, established reliever like Reitsma.

    Now I'm hoping Bubba can at least fill some space in the rotation for a few years. Don't know if it will happen though.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    BREAKING NEWS - March 26, 2004
    =========================================

    REDS TRADE WITH BRAVES

    The Cincinnati Reds have acquired left-hander Jung
    Bong and right-hander Bubba Nelson from the Atlanta
    Braves in exchange for reliever Chris Reitsma.

    Bong, 23, has posted a 6-3 record with a 5.29 ERA in
    parts of two seasons with the Braves. Nelson, 22,
    went 8-10 with a 3.18 ERA for AA Greenville before
    going 0-1 with a 1.88 ERA for AAA Richmond in 2003.
    He was rated as the Braves fourth-best prospect by
    Baseball America.

    Is this a "fact" or just what you "think?"
