What do the Astros and Cubs have to do with not closing out the series with the Giants? There's no bonus points for record against good teams, everything is reset in the playoffs. The Reds were better than the Giants in the first two games, the Giants were better in the last two, and the Reds inability in Game 3 to get another run of off Ryan Vogelsong or the Giants bullpen still haunts me. And the Astros and Cubs have nothing to do with that.
"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."
