Hot Stove League question Chad Dotson 01/16/2006 4 Has this been the longest off-season ever? Share this:TweetPocket 4 Responses Tom 01/16/2006 :sad:Seems like it will never end. Hopefully by next week Castellini will make moves to get rid of the Allen-OBrien-Narron team. Bring back Jim Bowden for a little excitement. EricTW 01/16/2006 I think it a bit unrealistic to think that Castellini will get rid of Narron and O’Brien this offseason. I think more likely that he’ll dismiss Allen to bring in his own guy and save the drastic moves until after the 2006 season. Blue 01/16/2006 Yes, this has been the longest offseason ever. All the trades and signings came all at once around the Winter Meetings, and there has been little or nothing going on in MLB since then. And yes, bring Jim Bowden back, if your idea of excitement is to find a way to bring a dozen five tool outfielders to Cincinnati. Why don’t we bring back Bob Boone and Don Gullett while we’re at it? A real step in the right direction. 😯 Blue 01/16/2006 One of us must be coming around!
