    I believe it does.

    No it doesn't. Doug is right on, and I don't even hate the trade.

    We may see Dusty get a shorter leash as well, which should help.

    The fact that you still won't admit you were wrong says more about you than it does about the trade, IMO.

    I think we'll all be glad if we don't have to find out.

    You responded to a post by pedro that was responding to me.

    As for the other thing, I'm not sure what you are talking about. We had a difference in opinion on Ondrusek in a gamethread. If that is me "coming at you", I'm sorry, but this just may be an example of the hyperbole I just mentioned. If I'm wrong please, post links to the few times I have come at you in the last week.

    I like it. Add depth to the pen and allows Chapman to get some rest. The Reds bot Broxton for two minor league relievers. Remember Zack Cy Stewart, Carlos Fisher, Josh Roenicke, etc? Guys are a dime a dozen.

    I was hoping Donnie Joseph would replace Bill Bray on the roster soon. I'm in the "overpaid" camp on this one.
    Stop! Heisey time!

    That Goldstein quote was not even in the context of the Reds, it was just pure vacuum sealed puffery. He's an outsider free to say what he wants.

    Ondrusek is shaky, Massett is probably not being counted on for pitching any meaningful innings this year, Simon has been a pleasant surprise but is certainly not someone I was ever counting on for late innings. He is an upgrade to Ondrusek, Simon, Bray, and Arredondo for a couple of prospects.

    The head scratcher I see right now is Casey Megehee for Chad Qualls

    Sure. I just don't think I was incorrect here.

    And yes, I have been wrong before, in case anyone was going to ask.

    I'm not getting into it on here. I've said what I've said and stated my position. Your posts have been acknowledged by others to come across as doing what you're accusing me and others of. Just consider that.
