Re: Thursday 7/19/2012 Minor-League Updates
I've heard it claimed several times and I don't get the argument that the Reds baby or give unfair advantages to their first round picks (as many as 6+ years removed) at all.
"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."
