    I think you might be reading a bit more into that then there is.

    Oh, I know it's speculation on the part of the author, but I'm throwing it out there.

    it's a bit of a misleading subject line.

    Then it's very bad reporting on the writer.

    I would see an irony/humor in the Reds getting Stewart back in a deal. LOL.

    This is where Spanish punctuation works best. ? At the beginning of a question so readers know what to expect.

    Why, there's a "?" there, which means the writer isn't claiming anything is a fact. Geez, we take what we do here too seriously sometimes. Remember, this is a fan message board, not a top 5 National media conglomerate.

    Sure, my BABOOP (batting average based on other posters) isn't at the same level as what many here on the ORG like to claim these days, but at least I can recall when we had fun and interesting discussions, and that's what I'd like to see a little more of.

    Bleacher Report? Don't fans make those articles?
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    You can do that without misleading and non-sensical subject lines.

    I agree with that, but in this case, the original writer, Jeff Wahl, took a "Reds may be interested in Frasor" and flipped it into his own fantasy trade article. The title is very misleading. Even with the ? I see it as something he had heard and it may happen. His article is nothing more than horrible speculation on his part. I'm not hating on you for posting the article, I'm just mad that he wrote it like that.

    Also, is BABOOP real? Can someone calculate mine?

    I don't know how to calculate it, but I'd say yours is pretty high.
