Pretty much. For the first few innings, it seemed like the Reds just wanted the game to be over so they could get out of Arizona. And I don't necessarily blame them, it's a long 162 game schedule. But it can be frustrating to watch as a fan.
"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."
