I think those are the reasons why people are discussing him. Glad you want the Reds to win, so do I.
What I mean is that some posters, whom I really do respect, seem to take pleasure in seeing Homer fail. Homer is obviously not frontline, but he's obviously not garbage either. All of the arguments either way just seem silly.
"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."
