    9 1/2 hours from the deadline, no news yet. hopefully the day goes by without some kind of news.

    Here's your news.. and the reason RA now will be signed.

    Reds infielder Ryan Freel was arrested early this morning in Tampa and charged with one count of disorderly intoxication, according to a booking report from the Hillsborough County jail.

    Hmmm, I wonder if Rich sent Ryan a case of Jack Daniels last week.

    If he doesn't pipe off about playing time, the negotiations, etc...
    If signing him doesn't lead to OB thinking that his signing somehow makes Kearns or Pena more available to trade...

    Then, I'd be fine with signing RA. He'd be an asset in the right role(s).

    There are a lot of 'ifs' there.
    But none of that will happen, if he signs he will be give a job..just like last year.

    RA whines about sitting while EdE goes through his learning curve even though Womack goes 1-37. (veteran leadership sticks together.)
    I'll bet the under on the base hit. That trade is still giving me chest pains and he hasn't even used up his first of 400 outs yet.

    No, what's going to happen is this .

    RA signs 1 yr 2.5 million
    He is not in the Opening Day lineup.
    EdE goes 2-40 in the first part of the season.
    RA whines about sitting while EdE goes through his learning curve even though Womack goes 1-37. (veteran leadership sticks together.)
    Kearns is traded to the Cubs for some AA pitching hack.
    EdE gets sent to Louisville - RA assumes 3B. Goes 2-21. Complains that the earlier "benching" is causing him to be rusty.
    RA feasts on crappy September pitching to hit .280 again.
    Reds lose 95.
    RedsZoners pull this thread up again in December of 2006.
    Very VERY plausible, and...in that scenario, the Reds would be lucky to lose just 95.
