It's like wanting a punter who is also a good tackler. A back up center who can hit threes. It would be nice, but ain't going to happen.
Right, but my point is that the Reds somehow always end up with literally THE worst of any team.
"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."
