6/29/13 - Reds @ Texas
I generally have a winning record when it comes to starting game threads, though I've gone 0-2 in my last two started. Like the Reds, hoping to break that trend.
Nick Tepesch going for Texas, a righty who can handle righties (.198 batting average) but not lefties so much (.312 batting average). With 6 of the 9 Reds batting lefty tonight, hopefully they get the job done.
"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."
