Episode 69: The Day Before the Deadline

Tonight I finally emerged from my Harry Potter novel, bleary-eyed and squinting in the bright-light that is the baseball world, to chat with the CTS about the goings on of our favorite team. The conversation meandered quite a bit, but I’m sure we covered the basics:

  • The deal that sent Brian “Love” Shackelford to Tampa Bay in exchange for Jorge Cantu
  • The deal that sent Kyle Lohse to Philly in exchange for Matt “Abalone” Maloney
  • The likelihood of anything else happening.
  • The rise to prominence of some familiar fan faces in the Cincinnati media
  • The standings in the NLC

CINCINNATI -- Cincinnati Reds executive vice president and general manager Wayne Krivsky today announced the acquisition of LHP Matt Maloney from the Philadelphia Phillies in exchange for RHP Kyle Lohse.
