    Why should it, RZ is a salt in the wound conversation hub, where assumptions, hyperbole and exaggeration dance hand in hand with gloom, despair and contempt.

    And the games haven't even started yet. LOL

    Awesome. This makes the Bray move more puzzling though.

    Great job by Wayne on this move.

    OK,that's a good start. One down, two to go. Mercker and Brower come on down.

    Re: Mike Stanton has been told he's being let go!

    This team is trying to win in 2008. Everyone keeps saying "If they would only do..." then they would prove to me they are trying to win. Well Stanton is gone, a closer is here, 2 young and very good pitchers are in the rotation not named Harang or Arroyo, and a name manager is at the helm. I don't agree with all of the moves but man this team seems to be heading in the right direction very quickly. I long for the days of discussing Carl, John Allen, JimBo, Danny Graves as a starter, etc. Give Cast and Krivs credit - they are doing the things to win.

    They couldn't even get a PTBNL for him, now that is bad, why was he even on the team to begin with.

    Maybe Freel and/or Hatteberg are being offered for another reliever. That would show me something. If the Reds weren't satisfied with Bray right now, let them add another plus guy for the bullpen from the outside.

    Then what would it be? I haven't seen this team try this hard to right the ship in decades. Give them time...we are getting really close to having at least one series of baseball in October.

    I hope Krivksy learned his lesson. If you don't want to have this conversation in the future, don't give multi-year contracts to guys who are likely to be washed up before it's over.
    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.

    So I assume that Hal report of the Reds nixing the trade to Philly is false.

    Sounds like they found Wes Helms was the best they were going to do and decided to just eat the money rather than bring him on board. Curious? Yes. Refreshing? Absolutely. Of course, now that he's cut, look for the Phils or someone else to give him a shot on the cheap.

    I really thought this was a joke and the post would say ...north with the Reds.

    Great news but either that rumor of Stanton for Helms was bogus or the Reds must hate Helms.

    I'm not dissatisfied at all. They are trying. Just want to see the team have enough middle relievers who can work multi-innings and let the new closer get a chance to close.

    not necessarily, they may have wanted no part of Helms and his salary. They can still try and trade Stanton while agreeing to eat a chunk of salary.

    Good.

    But I was really hoping to pitch to the Reds' FO the idea of renaming the bullpen the "Crypt," from which each pitcher would emerge in a dry-ice fog to Vincent Price's "rap" from "Thriller."

    Now that the crypt-keeper's gone, though....
