    So anybody here hungry for some crow?
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    But should he have? One good season and he expects the fans to return in droves?

    They sat on their hands last offseason and appear to be ready to do so again this offseason. If they do, I see attendance dropping off because of the turn off.

    Miami sports radio is brutal when the local teams struggle, but entertaining when you aren't really a fan of the local teams. The Marlins attendance, or lack thereof, was already a source of discussion a month ago.

    Looks like some dirt cheap primo seats to check out the new digs for the Reds series in Sept

    I'm really up for it! Planning to take my 3 year-old son to his first Reds game, too.

    Perhaps for one game in the series we could have a mini RZ get-together (it can be a different one than the one my kid is with me for ... he's a handful)

    Ha, to be fair, that was a pretty big upset in my opinion. Not many of us were able to see that coming.

    I admit the Votto one. I hoped they would but really, really doubted it. I expected Votto to get traded to tell the truth. SO load my crow with plenty of BBQ sauce please. And this is a dish of crow I'm loving!

    Re: Reds; Take Note From The Marlins

    The Marlins and Orioles are discussing trade scenarios, Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports (on Twitter). Miami is "knee deep" in trade talks and could complete a blockbuster in the next 24 hours, Jim Bowden of ESPN.com and MLB Network Radio reports (on Twitter).

    The Marlins, who sent Anibal Sanchez and Omar Infante to Detroit yesterday, have also had teams inquire on Hanley Ramirez, Carlos Lee, Josh Johnson,Ricky Nolasco and Randy Choate. The Orioles are known to be seeking pitching and corner infield help. It wouldn't be surprising to see Baltimore pursue Ramirez or Johnson, since either player would have an impact in 2012 and on next year's team.
    I think the buy low potential on Hanley is something many never saw coming. Now is the time to consummate what was always meant to be: Hanley to the Reds for Cody Puckett and Mark Serrano.

    Just kidding. Seems funny that this year's team looks like it doesn't have room for Hanley. I'm not sure Cozart's defense doesn't offset Hanley's offense.

    I think no one should feel ashamed about thinking Votto would eventually be gone.

    But jumping on the Marlins bandwagon as soon as they started talking to some FA's was for many posters simply another opportunity to give the Reds and their management a shot.

    And certainly not his salary.

    Well, it's interesting because statistically speaking, Cozart is ahead of Hanley by .2 WAR by Fangraphs' measure. Even if we account for margin of error, we could call it a draw.

    I do wonder, though, if Hanley being moved back to shortstop would get him back in the right frame of mind and get his production back closer to pre-2010 levels. Even if Hanley is back to being the upgrade we'd expect, one wonders if it would be enough to justify paying him the salary he makes.
