Re: 8/9/2012 Reds vs Baby Bears
A solution to the leadoff problem would have been nice, but it doesn't make Jay Bruce look any less terrible at the plate. Mes isn't hitting either, in general I feel like our catchers offensive production has dwindled (Navarro's HR aside).
"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."
