Re: The excellence of Brandon Phillips
One of the most underrated players in baseball IMO, seeing as most (ie: non-Reds fans, and even some Reds fans) focus far more on issues involving his personality instead of production and skills.
"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."
