    "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."

    Hannahan doesn't hit lefties.

    Except that time.

That's a bad idea. If it's a pitch that gets away from a guy, that's one thing...but that's not what he's doing. And his throws to 2nd...I only see about a quarter of his throws as accurate. That's not good. He's got a great arm, he's got quick feet. Those are great traits...but right now he's got some sloppy mechanics that he needs to clean up. But all that said, he IS our catcher of the future and most likely the present. And he's NOT a catastrophe...at all. Just sloppy and lackadaisical too often.
    These are fine points, Charles. Mes needs more work but his bat is better than Hanigan's and he's now showing his catching is more than adequate to enable the Reds to win ballgames.

    That KFC commercial I ate the bones is really stupid. That is all.

    Agreed. I never doubted that at all. I think I was mostly arguing the "decline of Hanny" part of the debate.

    Kudos once again to Mike Leake.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.
