My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!
The more I think about this deal the angrier I get. I'm taking a break. See you great folks later.
I miss Adam Dunn.

Rolen gets on base. He can field the ball AND throw it to first base. He's a leader, and for a team that desperately needs one, that's vitally important.
I'm not expecting a Cy Young from Stewart, more like a solid 3rd/4th starter type or a potential closeer to make Cordero expenndable in a year or so.
The fact that he was traded does not bother me as much as the fact that he was traded for nothing of value. Wasting trading chips and dollars are what make this the kind of wretched excrement that keeps this franchise as mediocre as it is.
Signing Rolen to an extension is the only thing that could make this worse. You want to incliude Stewart in a deal? Fine. Wait a year, package him and Roenicke in a deal with Alonso and Frazier and get a real return that can help this franchise climb out of the cesspit, not weight in down and sink it deeper in the...

And if you want to describe this season as a success be my guest, but FAIL is what this season is and will be.
I'm batting .1000 here so the fieldgoals haven't moved an inch. Nice try though.
a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.
I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
I think the big issue is simply this, we can't trust our GM (yet again) to make smart decisions, so in essence we know where we are going because the same guy is driving the car. Losing Stewart is just the writing on the wall.
