    Marty is on WLW and is saying it is a great move.

    I'm thinking the PTBNLs will be borderline guys. Think Masset/Richar. My guess is Jocketty wants a hungry roster.

    Holy bat-crap. I misread the press release. We traded Dunn AND cash?

    Nah, I think Daugherty would a hard time influencing anyone with an 8 pack of Little Kings in them to take a leak much alone influence someone who actually understands baseball to make a move based on his opinion.

    Re: Dunn traded to DBacks

    Regarding the official Reds release article, isn't this just a WONDERFUL tribute to Adam Dunn's history with the Reds, which is the only reference to him in the whole thing (except the intro paragraph, of course):

    Dunn batted .233 with 32 home runs and 74 RBI in 114 games with the Reds.
    Disgusting.

    They've gone totally bonkers.

    Worst trade of my lifetime to be sure.

    I was horrified by the Kearns trade. I'm not even sure how to describe my emotions after this one.

    I wish we could trade that moronic windbag to Arizona for a franken-arm A baller and a PTBNL.

    You want to change the "culture" of the ballclub -- start with the old fossil upstairs who berates the players and turns casual fans against the talent ownership wants them to pay money to see.

    Some things in life are bad
    They can really make you mad
    Other things just make you swear and curse.
    When you're chewing on life's gristle
    Don't grumble, give a whistle
    And this'll help things turn out for the best...

    And...always look on the bright side of life...
    Always look on the light side of life...

    Pay attention to the open sky

    I would expect nothing less from him.
    In those things which we commit to practice we can master, and with mastery we have the freedom to use these skills whenever we desire, without this practice we are slaves to our inability.
