The Reds added Latos,Marshall,Madson
The Cards lost the best player in the game, gain an ace off of TJ surgery, and Beltran
A net gain for the Reds...but is it enough? I think so.
Well, I got all four wisdom teeth removed today. Two impacted, one sideways, and one normal. It pretty much been one of the more painful days I've experienced in my 32 years on this earth. I woke up from what was probably my 7th nap today (Percocet) to hear this news. OMG THE PAIN IS GONE!!! SWEET LORD IT'S A MIRICAL!!!!
Benzinger backing and calling! And the 1990 world championship series belongs to the Cincinnati Reds!
This is how you win a Championship! Walt pulling the trigger NOW!
Hey Sparky! Indian Hill English teachers taught me everything I know!
The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.
As fans of the Cincinnati Reds, I don't think we've ever had an offseason like this.
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!
I think this was all made possible by the Latos deal.
If the Reds went out and got Shields or Gio or Wandy or any of the other starting pitchers making millions in 2012, there is no way they can afford Madson.
"Man, the pitch looks fast, even in slow motion." Thom Brennaman on Chapman's fastball.
Only a one-year deal per ESPN.
But these are issues to be addressed going forward. Right now, the Reds have seriously upgraded the pitching staff, which is the best thing they could have done for the ballclub.
The Operator, this is totally off topic so please forgive me everyone, but I love your avatar!!
