Re: Arthur Rhodes: at what point do we try to sign him for 2011?
Wait until the off-season and see what the asking price is. Relievers are risky, no need to lock him up ahead of time only for him to get injured or turn into a pumpkin.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
