Re: 8/29/2012 Reds at D'Backs
It's gonna be hard for them with the Dodger$ and Giants competing and spending at a high level, but the D'Backs have some nice young talent particularly pitching wise. Miley, Corgin, and Skaggs are all rotation worthy from what I've seen and those are just the lefties. And then you have the highly rated Trevor Bauer. And Cahill and Kennedy are solid, though Kennedy's 2011 seems to be a mirage. And you have Daniel Hudson on the backburner as well. They'd be smart to move on from Chris Young and start Parra in CF, and deal a pitcher for a SS or 3B and suddenly they'd have a more legit offense to go along with their young arms.
"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."
