Re: Cliff Lee
Just to play Devil's Advocate (and trust me, I want Cliff Lee), it's worth noting that a little team called the Expos thought that trading away some prospects to get TOR guy in Bartolo Colon was a good idea too.
"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."
