    Of every non-pitcher free agent (aside from an obvious CFer we probably aren't even going to look into) on the market, this is the guy I wanted us to pursue. Not only did we pursue, we got him. I'm excited.


    NOW GET SOME PITCHING!!!
    Is it "next season" yet?

    Pierre is a Dodger.

    Tomred take it all with a grain of salt. It is easy to criticize and for 6 division winners it provokes ways to get better and win the World Series. 2 wild card team sneak in and beyond that the "know" it all's can be proven right far more often than proven wrong. Yeah there baseball fans "so to speak" but they seldom offer solutions with any actual hard facts to back there argument I must add as a disclaimer the following. If I viewed baseball as they do, I can truly say I would quit the game altogether. If you do not have hope, or a passion for the great catches and walk off homers or clutch hits of the game.

    Then why care? Why waste god's precious time in life that you breathe on something that you consider a doomed franchise a team that has no hope?
    If you can not offer realistic solutions, then all you truly are is a weak person choosing the easy side of criticism. Barry Zito to the Red's pardon my chat comment lmfao mister west coast is going to stay there or be money whipped by the Yankee's or Met's. Thats a realistic fact if you are objective.
    2006 Redzone mock Draftee's- 1(st) Daniel Bard(redsox), 1(st sup)( Jordan Walden (Angels), 2(nd) rd.- Zach Britton(Orioles), 3(rd) Blair Erickson(Cardinals), 3(rd) Tim Norton( Yankees),(cuz its a Tim Hortons thing

    Pain heals. Chicks dig scars. Glory... lasts forever.

    What a terrible mischaracterization of many posters on this site. I don't know a single poster on this board who doesn't believe there's hope for this team. I consider someone a pessimist who says "So and so will never come here! He's too west coast." What the hell does that mean? Zito can't surf during the baseball season anyway--too damn busy (even in Oakland).

    If the Reds want to win they'll win. If they want to turn a profit on the club, they'll do that. If they want to think small, then that's their prerogative. But there is absolutely nothing standing in the way of this team being great except small minds and miserliness.

    That is the truth. But it's a changin.

    Don't forget how miserable things were this time last year. They aren't peachy now, but they are changing.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    They were in contention thanks to weak competition from pretty much every other NL team.

    Wayne deserves some credit for acquiring Arroyo, Phillips, and Ross, but he deserves blame for the Kearns/Lopez deal.

    Please add the following:

    Cormier
    Stanton
    Ryan Franklin
    Lohse
    Guardado

    And for not only trading away Kearns/Lopez like you stated but getting these players in return:

    Majewski
    Clayon

    I like Bray and will be patient for him.

    The club also won 7 more games then it did the year before. It was an improvement.
