    O'Brien fired! Kullman interm GM, announcement at 5pm

    Unless it's a cruel joke, I just got a newsbit saying it just happened. No joke. Official announcement set later this afternoon.

    If this is true, I might have to get drunk tonight.

    I have been saving a special cigar for the occasion. Not for the firing of O'Brien, that's not my style ... but for the new direction the Reds will be going in ... and ... a bit of hope.

    I will personally drive to Cincinnati and give Castinelli a big hug if true.

    Please be true! Please be true! Please be true!

    I got drunk on Friday night in celebration of Lindner no longer being around. Two Reds celebrations in four nights isn't a bad start for RCast.

    I feel very, very badly for O'Brien. Hate to see anyone lose his job. I mean, did the boy DanO dream of someday being a GM of a major league baseball team? And think of dinner at the DanO RanchO tonight. Everyone sitting around quietly picking at their plates ... not quite sure what to say ...

    But there's a little piece of me going inside anyway, and I'm actually looking forward to the season again.

    Best of luck, DanO, in your future endeavors. And a big thanks to Mr. C.

    Same here, like it has been mentioned here before, I'm sure he's a nice guy and a good baseball guy..just not a GM.

    Could explain why the Reds pulled out of the deal for Mota. (see Crisp thread)

    This sounds too good to be true.

    I have a feeling this is just a rumor. It doesn't seem to mesh with RC statements at his press conference.

    If this comes to pass, you'll truely be a Big Donkey around here. Otherwise you'll just be a large jackass.
