I'm not basing it just off tonight though, he hit .211 last year with regular playing time. I'm just pointing out that just because he's gotten some pinch hits doesn't make him the 'savior' at SS like some people feel. Janish is fine for what he is; a backup.
"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."
