Re: Reds sign Mark Prior
You've got to respect the guy. Hasn't pitched in a major league game since August 10, 2006, and he could have given up a long time ago, yet he's still out there trying every year. And hell he's got a business degree from USC, it'd probably make more sense financially to just give up on baseball.
"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."
