Re: Bullpen Help--The Thread
It's hard to imagine ANYONE wanting Marmol, though Detroit is certainly desperate for late inning help. I could see the inverse potentially happening of the Cubs picking up Valverde, giving him a few save opps, and then flipping him at the deadline like they hope to do with Kevin Gregg.
"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."
