    "Trade Idea" Threads

    Would people quit this garbage? It's absolutely pointless.

    We aren't general managers. We aren't associated with the Reds. Our trade ideas are a waste of time.

    The only time trades should be talked about is
    1) When they are rumored by sources such as newspapers and actual organizations.
    2) When they actually happen.

    That is not the way to make friends around here bucko. Unfortunately, while you may not enjoy the trade idea threads, there are many others that do, which I am sure you probably are getting from your negative rep.

    Tip for next time: just don't read them.

    Either that, or enjoy them for what they are: an insight to relative value of players, an attempt at bargain hunting and honing of eyes for talent, and an exciting game of "Call your shot."

    You're call.

    Are you just trolling for trolling's sake?

    Trade rumors from here, especially from few people like Brookyln, Big Donkey and others I know I've left out, tend to be more factual based than anything you'd pick up in a newspaper in Cincinnati. I can't tell you how many times in the last three years I've read something here, only to see ESPN, the Enquirer or SI playing catchup a day or two later "breaking" the news.

    Hey Junior, bad day in school?

    Being the trademeister of the board, I like to put my baseball brain to work and just see how I can improve the Reds. I know my trade ideas are just that.....ideas but my love for the Reds is real.

    So, when I have someone telling me what I should say and what I should post, I will just say you can kiss it where the sun doesn't shine.

    If people don't like to play general manager, then I guess there wouldn't be any fantasy baseball, football, etc. leagues. Heck, playing general manager is the reason I still play video games.

    Well, I guess we should go ahead and close down the message board.

    It's been fun.

    He has a point. We aren't even on the Reds, so why are we talking about them? I guess that means I shouldn't talk politics anymore either; or women, not being one and all... hmmm...

    So... uhh... white males living in Chicago; what's your take?
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    You can tell how old they are by counting the rolls of fat on the back of their necks and multiply each one by 11 years.

    I like the beer smiley to offset the absolute moronicness of the thread... like, "oh, he is clinking beers... ill ignore his whole self righteous post and clink his beer..." Suuuure.
