    This is nothing more than what the poet, Rod Mckuen, called 'mental-masturbation'. The deal is done. Get over it.

    Redzone posters really like to complain about threads they have no interest in.. despite the fact that the activity on this board has plummeted to almost zero..

    Why even click on this thread if you don't care how these prospects pan out?

    I came to read an update, and about 1/2 the posts are complaining this thread exists... Yes, I am complaining about complaining but I really miss the old days of this forum.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Agreed, I have interest to see how they do going forward, only because I once wondered what they would do for the Reds one day. I think I'm perfectly capable of rooting for the reds while wondering what former Reds/Reds farmhands are doing in their new role. One of the strengths of Redszone was that it was always a great place to not only discuss the Reds, but baseball as a whole, there was no need for a "reds" board and a "all other baseball" board. Last I checked, all the guys the Reds traded are still playing baseball and worthy of discussion as we see fit. It still baffles me how many people click on a perfectly clear topic only to ***** that that topic doesn't deserve discussion. If you don't want to pay attention to the seasons/careers Alonso, torreyes, Volquez, Grandal, etc.. put up its pretty easy to just skip over the topic.

    I don't know why anyone would start this topic. It's stupid. Seriously.

    Oops. I started it.

    So how are they doing now? Updates would be nice.

    This will be good for my wager with TRF, who thinks that Wood and Sappelt will outperform Alex Gordon this year...

    Well, I expect Wood to pitch better than Gordon this year.

    Yeah, I feel better since these guys are all struggling and going to be complete busts.
