    23 hours to do something

    The deadline is 4pm EDT tomorrow. It's one of the times of year when there is player movement. The Reds have played extremely poorly the last three weeks and are out of the race barring a major miracle.

    If there is Reds trade action, perhaps this is a place to post it. Not general MLB trade activity, but serious rumors or actual Reds moves.

    Could be an empty thread, but who knows.

    An easy reference point for Reds deals or strong rumors of Reds deals.

    As Ltlabner says, there is always hope.

    Most of the contracts around here are so large that the players involved will clear waivers, making tomorrow's deadlnie moot.

    Weathers and Rhodes probably have to move by tomorrow if they're gonna move, but the big numbers (Harang, Arroyo, Cordero) will all be on the table methinks.

    The Reds players may easily pass through waivers. But if you wait beyond tomorrow, the guys coming to the Reds may have trouble getting through.

    If they wait, it limits the available players, at least those in the major leagues.

    I would be shocked if Jocketty makes a move.

    Unfortunately, I'm starting to feel the same way.

    OBM, I will actually agree with your signature if no move is made. Walt Jocketty should be fired if nothing is done by this time tomorrow. No ifs, ands, or buts about it.
    Go BLUE!!!

    I've said that from Day 1. I think it's silly how crazy this board has gotten over the last week. Seriously what are you guys expecting?

    I think the expectations have gone to the extreme over the last two weeks.

    Yeah, expecting our GM to make a move is extreme.

    A sign from the FO that they actually want to compete sometime soon.

    Pending a physical, the Reds have traded: San Ity to Colorado for Morath Esame

    The fact that there has been serious discussion about the Reds acquiring Halladay shows how much Reds fans are truly in denial about their franchise.

    If there isn't a move out there to make the club better than why make a move? I mean come on, making a move just to make a move gets teams into trouble.
