    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.

    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.

    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.

    Buddy of mine called from Philly ...

    Said he read somewhere else overnight that O'Brien and Allen are both supposedly set to be fired.

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

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

    If this is this case, all my ranting and raving yesterday will have been for naught. And I couldn't be happier about it...
