Re: The Excellence of Homer Bailey
Latos, Arroyo, and Bailey were excellent. Yet here we stand on the brink of elimination.
Still, I do now have high hopes for Homer in 2013. Hopefully he will live up to them.
"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."
