Sorry Chris, you were greatly unimpressive for the Reds and they moved on. Enjoy a very nice living in San Diego.....oh and just because you hit a HR doesn't mean you are a homerun hitter
I don't think he has a chip, and he looked good with the Reds. Probably was many, apparently including Jerry Narron, expected him to have the power he flashed in the minors to seamlessly replace Austin Kearns in RF. When he didn't show it in 2-3 weeks (and he obviously never did develop it), he was disowned.
"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."
