Re: Anthony Rizzo Signs 7 Year, $41 Million Deal
The Rays locked up Evan Longoria several years ago with a similar deal, no?
It seems these types of deals generally work out well with hitters, pitchers are more of a mixed bag. Thank god we didn't do a deal like this with Volquez.
"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."
