    DanO confirmed today that he is an incompetent boob. Why spend money on Tony Womack?

    Quote from a Yankee board... ha.
    These minor leaguers the Yanks are getting for Womack, are they still, you know, alive? Just asking. I mean, it's not a deal breaker if they aren't...

    This is a Dan O'Brien trade.

    The new owner told him that he wanted to win....NOW, so no prospects. Trade for veteran or experienced major league players. This is what Dan O'Brien has given us under those demands. He needs months to work out deals like these, not hours. He's a clueless moron who has no business carrying around a business card that says GM.

    I not going to create a huge argument but doesn't it make sense that first O'Brien confirmed talks with Matt Morris's agent about Matt Morris and now trading for Womack that were seeing part of the Cardinals' organization coming to Cincinnati. I don't care if you think O'Brien is incompetent for the job because it seems to me that he's not making this deal. So argue around the facts to show superiority over me but I guess your hatred makes you unable to see what is really happening.

    I just read a post on John Sickels' website that says the 2nd ptba is Rafael Gonzalez. I will be so p*ssed if that is true.

    Apparently, getting a ballplayer that showed any signs of life wasn't a dealbreaker for DanO either.

    What?

    All I'm saying is that the new owner, Castellini, told O'Brien to make some trades to improve the Reds NOW. He didn't want prospects that will develop in 5-7 years, he wanted players that will make an immediate impact. Since Dan O'Brien is fully incapable of this in general, and even worse under time constraints, you get a trade like this.

    I can't see Castellini directly telling O'Brien to trade Kevin Howard and Ben Himes for Tony Womack, or even telling O'Brien to get Tony Womack for whoever for that matter.

    I can see Castellini saying to go get Tony Womack but that's just me. I respect your opinion and our differences.

    I'm trying to pin this all on O'Brien so that when he is fired in the near future I can say "Wheeew. That's over. Time to move on. Only way to go is up..." and have some hope. Plus, its something I can see O'Brien doing, under a time constraint, and orders to improve the team with major league players and not prospects.

    If Castellini is behind all of this, we're screwed, for a very, very long time.

    And if it is true, let's hope that after the change-of-hands the new ownership will hire someone who knows what he's doing to make such decisions.

    Unfortunantly, it's beginning to look like the Reds are further from up than they were, oh like 4 hours ago.
