    Fantastic job. What were you going to say at the end when she cut you off?
    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

    That I didn't just TELL my friend. I PUBLISHED my findings in an economics Journal. Quite a difference, I'd say.

    "Duck Tales" is available on my blog BTW. It makes an entertaining read, or so I'm told. Only five pages.

    Now is there anything you can do about the Reds' finances? Or is that off topic in this forum?

    Ask Patrick Byrne about this. Actually, I'm interested in hearing (nice job, btw) oneupper's take on the Patrick Byrne accusations.

    That's him. He seems a bit of obsessed. But OTOH Cramer has admitted to spreading lies about companies to short them.

    Cramer gives himself too much credit. And Byrne probably attracted more short sellers by obsessing about it. I'll admit to have shorted OSTK, before it became scarce (could hardly find shares to borrow later on). But it was more about the company's bloated valuation and consistent losses than about "market manipulation" (at least in my case..LOL). I'd believe that most of the OSTK shorters were thinking the same way: overvalued piece of crap...short it.

    Can these things feed on themselves? Sure, but there has to be at least a smidgeon of validity to the claims for it to catch on. And i'ts not an easy game. OSTK has had a ton of 'snapback" rallies (short-covering?).

    So, no...I don't think someone can go on CNBC and move the market. Heck, Greenspan was telling us about irrational exuberance in 1996. It took a while for that concept to set in...LOL.

    Are we off topic yet?
