Re: 7/31/12 - Reds vs Padres - oh yeah, there's a game today
Walt says team chemistry effected the FO's decisions not to pull of a big deal "a lot", along with the interest in the Reds future. Says he and his staff were holed up in a Colorado hotel working on things.
"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."
