Granted I'm only talking about what I saw online since I think I've only ever known one Pirates fan IRL, but man, does that annoy me. It's like, your team has been terrible for almost 20 years. You think they'd be thrilled just to have a decent stretch of mediocrity and instead they're all arrogant about it or whatever. Hell, I'm humbled every time the Reds play well because I expect it to stop at any minute.
"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."
