Nah, 'eff em (with apologies to IAmBucsFan). Particularly for their announcers, but also because I'd have to hear even more whining from Reds fans about how much better run a team that hasn't had a winning year in 20 seasons is than us.
"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."
