They've traded Sonny Gray, Winker, and Suarez since yesterday.

Bob Castellini and go find himself. I won't be spending a dime on this team this season.

Watching the last few days has really reminded me of Moneyball.

I know where Bob lives (used to live down the street from him). I'm want to get a bunch of "Sell the team" signs printed and stick them in his yard.

Why are the Reds sellers? Didn’t they just go thru a rebuild to contend for a few years? Seems like last year was just the start…

Because they are owned and ran by absolute penny-pinching morons.

I like the obvious joke everyone is making on Twitter that typically when you tank you also won something before that.

I was telling my good friend who is a Reds fan that the only appeal to this year will be finding out who sucks worse between them and my Pirates. I've been there before twice in the last 30 or so years and it's not something I wish on anyone even if they are rivals whom we happen to have beanball wars with. Either try to win or fuck off out of the business.

Saw "#selltheteambob" trending on Twitter today and thought it was our owner Bob ("incapable of" Nutting) until I looked into it.

No way I am going to spend any time watching the Dayton Dragons in GABP this year.


They need to trade Votto to a contender.  He doesn't deserve this.

I’d hate to see Votto in another uniform but he deserves another shot at winning. I hope he gets a trade to a contender. That would be my rooting interest until he retires.

It reminds me why as a reds fan I can’t get into the baseball season anymore :(

Apparently one of the pitchers involved in the Winker trade has been injured since last June. So that's fun.

I don’t like the trades but also didn’t like the makeup of the Reds. Now, development, organizational training and coaching/managing certainly play a big part….but Votto, Suarez, Winker….some serious base clogging and defensive near nightmares. Don’t give me an error total or some half hearted metric, I watch every game and I know the game. I don’t like that they weren’t far from a playoff team and the empty things to make 72 wins a prayer…that sucks, but we need different players.

No way anyone watched the last couple postseason series and thought….hey, Reds are close. No they were not. Those teams hate good plate approaches, athletic players that were good on defense and took baserunning seriously and many high quality relievers. The Reds weren’t close….Winker is Votto, Votto is Winker…..keep 1. Suarez worried about 50 HR and it killed him. He fell so far it was painful to watch.


I hate this too and David Bell ain’t leading anything I hope for.


Tickets will be cheaper (or if they aren’t, no one will be there)….now I can go watch the better teams come to town and can sit where I want to watch it.
