Re: Dickey to Jays almost done
I actually like the trade for Toronto should it happen. d'Arnaud is a stud but not exactly a sure thing (ie: he's more a Mesoraco than a Posey based on minor league performance). If you are in win-now mode, adding one of last year's Cy Young winners is about as good as it gets.
"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."
