Strange game sometimes.
Not to mention the X-Man is unstoppable as a pinch hitter of late, gets a start, and so far is 0-3 with 2 K's.
Beisbol es loco.
"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."
