"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."
Tough crowd. I posit an honest question and I get a bunch of wise guys (many smileys here).
And I think we got EE from the Rangers in the Rob Bell trade and Willie Greene came from Expos when Reds traded John Wetteland.
