    Right on. I just wasted several perfectly good expletives on faulty information!

    Doesn't that defeat the purpose of Twitter? "Hey, guys, I gotta take a crap....oops wait, nope it went back up."

    A bunch of soon to loose their job reporters trying to scoop the next guy. Wait until the official team release.

    I wouldn't give up EE and Stubbs/Heisey for Rolen either.

    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

    Oh the joy of following "news" and associated rumors as it happens. What an interesting thread - I wonder how this will all end up, but it sure is kind of fun (unless the Alonso reports are true...)

    Re: Heyman says Rolen to the Reds

    I hope it's not Alonzo either, but isn't this a bit of overreacting?

    I don't think a AA 1b holds the fate of the entire Reds' future in his hands.

    Wow, talk about overreacting.. I agree it Alonso could come back to haunt us if he's sent to the Jays, but after living through Milton, etc this is small potatoes.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Re: Heyman says Rolen to the Reds

    And after nothing from the Reds Twitter feed, now they post this:

    Brandon Phillips poses for a photo with fans at the Hoxworth Blood Drive at GABP on Friday.

    There's something ironic about some blood sucking going on though...

    Agreed.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    No, he's not. The steroid era is over, guys at 34 and 35 are regressing now pretty hard. Not even mentioning the Reds aren't really going to have Scott Rolen playing third next year full time, they're going to have Scott Rolen for 450 at bats and then some other scrub for the rest. If they're lucky, that's just assuming he misses his average amount of time that he's missed the past few years and not more, which is a big assumption with a guy in his mid 30s with a bad back.

    Our entire front office should be drug tested for agreeing to this trade.
