    If Cast hires Paul DePodesta we need to build a statue of him outside the park.

    I'll make you a deal, like any other candidate
    We'll pretend we're walking home 'cause your future's at stake
    My set is amazing, it even smells like a street
    There's a bar at the end where I can meet you and your
    friend
    Someone scrawled on the wall "I smell the blood of les tricoteuses"
    Who wrote up scandals in other bars

    I'm having so much fun with the poisonous people
    Spreading rumours and lies and stories they made up
    Some make you sing and some make you scream
    One makes you wish that you'd never been seen
    But there's a shop on the corner that's selling papier
    mache
    Making bullet-proof faces, Charlie Manson, Cassius Clay
    Get your nunchucks and the keys to your dad's car. I know where we can get a gun

    I absolutely love his willingness to step up, accept responsibility, and not BS with fans.

    He has been completely honest and my faith in the Reds has almost been completely been restored.

    I can't believe they have an owner that mentioned sabermetrics by name, and embraces it.

    Am I in bizarro world?

    I am back on the Reds bandwagon and excited for spring again. From October (when DanO wasn't fired) til now I have been completely unpumped for the new year.

    I think I'm going to cry. I was still on the fence with Castellini, but was concerned. My opinion has completely changed and I've even become optimistic. That might shock some folks around here, but this is reason for celebration.

    I'm absolutely geeked.

    Kearns is happy, MWM's happy, I'm happy.

    I love me some Reds.

    Matt,

    Could you please explain why the Reds flagship station cut off the presser? Is WLW just begging to lose the Reds?

    FWIW this is all occuring exactly 30 years and 1 day after Howsam was hired.

    Just heard Kearn's take on the break during Lance's show.

    Yesterday, my beloved Seattle Seahawks made it to the Superbowl.
    Today, Dan O'brien is no longer GM of my beloved Reds.

    At this rate, expect me to find a suitcase full of money by the end of the week.
