Pauly is quickly wearing people's patience. CF has been a revolving door all year and Thome is as much an injury risk as Jr. at times. Dye and Quentin are playing every day. He'll be a role player at DH and CF to play in the postseason, or he'll languish in Cincy. Choice is his evidently.

IF Jr. accepts this trade, the next thing I do if I am Reds ownership is fire Brantley. It cannot appear that a broadcaster, especially a bad one can run a player out of town.
Suck it up cupcake.
He is better on TV that radio, but that's damning him with faint praise.
I was in broadcasting for almost 20 years, and I've rarely ego spill out on the air like his does. off camera/closed mic sure, but on the air? That's reserved for bigger dogs than Jeff freaking Brantley.
Suck it up cupcake.
[QUOTE=TRF;1706891]it's an appearance thing. Plus add in he's atrocius, screaming how unclutch a player as said player is belting a HR.
I think the appearance problem comes if they do fire Brantley for being outspoken. That's when the criticism of the team would come.
For me personally, this could be an awful day.

An idea on the return.
If Adam Dunn is dealt as well, we will have a hole at the corner outfield spot. The Reds have been trying to cut into the market here in Parkersburg for the past couple of years, which is mostly Pirates territory.
Nick Swisher could use a change of scenery, plus the thought of playing closer to his hometown. Put Swisher or even Votto in LF, and the other at first.
That being said, the White Sox gave up most of their farm system to get Nick, and his salary wouldn't come close to what the Reds would probably want.
my gut feeling tells me Jr nixes the deal.
Reds will get little in return for Jr if the deal does go through.
