In fairness, he's an infielder just now making the conversion to the outfield. But yeah, he was awful. I wasn't aware that the Astros infield was so rich in talent that it necessitated moving Paredes to the OF.
"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."
