    any predictions for next "news"....

    okay,we are at jan 2.mr obrien was true to his word about dunner being a first of the year thing.maybe i'm wrong but shouldnt one of the busiest times of the year for a GM be the entire offseason.basically we have heard no news now for several days(from the reds that is).
    any predictions on the next news we will hear from reds camp:
    dunn signs LTC
    dunn turns down LTC
    FA signed by reds
    trade involving reds
    castellini takes over as baseball approves
    ??????????

    I'll play along.

    Mid-January: New ownership approved after owners meetings.
    Late January: Dan O'Brien is fired
    Mid-February: New GM is hired -- Jerry Narron + coaching staff are fired
    Late February: Lou Piniella is hired as the new manager
    During spring training: Dunn signs long term deal.

    Hey, a guy can hope can't he?

    to digress a moment i am asking a honest question here.people that are saying obrien and/or narron fired.....what are the chances.i mean is it really possible castellini could do that when he takes over or are we sayin a 20% chance he would.i get most of my reds news from this site so just wondering if this is hoping or really possible......

    It's really possible.

    Narron has a contract for 2006 with a mutal option for 2007. O'Brien has a contract through 2006. The new owners could choose to let either or both of them go (and all or part of the coaching staff) and simply eat their 2006 contracts.

    It would be no different in principle than what happened to Jimmy Haynes, or Dave Miley, for that matter.
    Makes all the routine posts.

    There is a Griffey to St Louis for Marquis and Cali - RUMOR - over on the St Louis board on Scout.com. Said it was mentioned on WLW.

    Sounds like signing/not signing Aurilia will be the next news, since it has a January 9 deadline.

    I can't imagine that the Dunn LTC will be settled within the next week.

    aside from an Aurilia signing/not signing, i am thinking the next news will have something to do with a minor league free agent, that player being a never-was or never-has-been.
    depressing thing is, i am not joking here.

    O'Brien signs Aurillia to 4 year, 20 million dollar deal.

    O'Brien trades Dunn for Nefi Perez.
