Not sure why you're turning a thread about a Hanson/Walden trade into a rant against those in favor of turning Chapman into a starter, but Kimbrel has never started a single game in his minor league or pro career so the comparison is irrelevant.
"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."
