I just look at the names and remember the damage, and the stats seem to back my memory up, granted it's not murderer's row though. Excluding BJ because he's new to the NL and Gattis and Simmons because they haven't face him, here's this lineups #s against Bronson:
Johnson has batted .400 against BA
Justin Upton is .223 with 2 HR
McCann is .500 with 4 HR
Freeman is .429 with 1 HR
Uggla is .333 with 2 HR's
"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."
