    Did the trade fire this team up?

    What a night for the Reds after the big trade today. A quailty start from Milton, Weather and Coffey both throwing scoreless innings on the pitching lines. The offense has scored 9 runs to the tune of 14 hits and has had 5 extra base hits with doubles from Dunn, Castro, and Aurilia and HR's from Griffey and Castro. I think the Reds are fired up because the Reds management showed the team today that they will do whatever they can to improve the team. I know that not everyone will agree that the trade was positive but I know that a trade like this would've never gone down in the past. I think maybe the Reds' players know this too.

    harangatang, you are a good guy, but with this bullpen I don't want to EVER see this type of post before the game is actually over.

    Sorry, I forgot Standridge was still on the roster.

    I would say it did, I mean if you are one of the key offensive cogs in this lineup, hopw discouraging would it be to put up 7, 8, 9 runs and still see the bullpen blow it night after night. At what point does the offense throw up their hands and say "oh well, what else can I do?" Which is the attitude that breeds complacency. If these guys give the bully a shot in the arm I would think it would do wonders for the morale of the team as a whole.

    If Majkowski....strike that... Majewski fires this bullpen up, I'll come to the last game of the season dressed like one of the Three Musketeers in his honour!

    If anything it should have shown that anyone is expendable. That will normally wake a team up at least for a short time.

    I think Standridge earned a demotion back to Louisville after last night's performance.

    If anything should have fired the Reds up it was Dunn's walkoff grand slam of a couple of weeks ago. Instead, the Reds went right into the dumpster after that dramatic win.

    Does it really matter? The experts here already know the long-term outcome of the move within hours of it being made. It's horribe and the franchise as we know it is doomed.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    They should close GABP. Baseball as we know it is over for Cincinnati. The lemming line for the plunge into the Ohio River forms on Mehring Way. All is lost.

    For a moment I thought he had coaxed former Packer's QB Don Majikowski out of retirement.
