Re: Official waiver trade deadline thread (August 31)
Young has a no trade clause that he doesn't intend to waive for anybody but Texas and possibly NY/Boston. It's a moot point.
"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."
