Re: 8/24/12 - Reds vs Cards
I suppose it does go back to debate about psychological effect. It is absolutely, 100% just one game out of 162. But whenever a team ends up disappointing, you have people trying to pinpoint the moment it went wrong. Whether that's right or wrong, that's the way it goes. Tonight's (almost guaranteed) loss hurts, and hopefully it's water under the bridge come tomorrow.
"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."
