    I hope that coming from a group that owned a fellow NL Central team they will have a good read on the [in]adequecy represented by Mr. O'Brien, et al.

    If this is true they need to dump DanO now and go after Depodesta or Theo.

    Sweet Lou is still lurking in the shadows looking for a job as well.

    And once again there is hope in Redsland.


    Can we get rid of all the in-between innings shenanigans too?
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    There might be one critical difference though, a generational one. If these guys are local and they're baseball fans then they've got the BRM burned into their brains. It's a strong imprint leading to a lofty expectation level. Carl never had it. I get the distinct impression the BRM was never anything more than cocktail party fodder to him, but if these guys were good-to-great fans of that club it would be an inoculation against terminal blandness.

    It would really show their marketing savy if they were to get in touch with the premier Reds messageboard on the internet and say hello.

    Or respond to an overture from said board, once the deal is announced.

    Damn, I can't give you rep for that (got to spread it around a bit), but that idea totally deserves rep.
