Basically agreed. I don't think he's good enough to be a starter for us, but he'd be a solid backup for the infield. Or he can be a trade piece to a team that may believe he can hit well enough in the bottom of the order. We've heard Arizona has interest, and he can't be any less productive than John McDonald.
"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."
