Amy posted this on the past starter and since no-one can comment on it any longer I felt compelled to bring it over to the new starter and start the comments flowing anew.

Arroyo and Choo are free agents. BP is on the trading block. Homer is entering his last year of Arbitration. You need a new manager. Do you keep Billy Hamilton in the big leagues or sending him back to AAA for more "seasoning"? Lots of questions this off-season, what would you do if you were the GM?
Here is a quick run-down of what I would do right now. Of course this will likely change 4-5 times this off-season because well just because.

Word is that we shall have no new manager before the World Series is completed. I wonder if the decision has already been made and the team is just waiting now so as to keep MLB happy?

My high school love life was, as is the case for most teenagers, a train wreck. I wasn't exactly George Clooney, and therefore, I understand that I couldn't exactly expect to be attracting Kate Upton, but even with my lowered ceiling, dating was just a comedy of errors:
There was the girl who was obsessed with cats and the cheerleader with the IQ of 75;

2013 didn't go as planned. And there's not a Reds fan out there that doesn't have a strong opinion (or twelve) about why that happened. I don't want to speak for everyone here, but I know how I feel:
I just don't want to talk about it anymore.
Consider this thread a cleansing of the palate. We've had more than 24 hours to rant, rave, complain, and be despondent about the way things ended. And while I'm by no means ready to 'move on' per se, I'm definitely ready to quit with tha... [More]
