Re: Phillips' Boner (Fred Merkle)
I just don't get it. It was the first out! What difference does it make that he singled and was then thrown out going to third or if he flew out to center field?
"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."
