I'll never forget the feeling at the ballpark when he ran The Reds out of that potential rally they had going in Game 3 of the NLDS last year. Ugh...
I'm an equal opportunity critic of BP, but that play has to be the most overhyped, over-thought of moment in recent Reds history.
"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."
