Re: 6/19/2013 Pirates at Reds
Denis Phipps must have rubbed somebody on the Reds the wrong way last year or something, because he's a RH OF and playing fairly well in AAA but can't seem to get a callup in favor of all these lefties. Neftali Soto is also RH, but he hasn't play so much as an inning of LF in his minor league career.
"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."
