"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."
This was a tough loss. Yeah, yeah, much improved in important ways and some bad luck. But I wanted this one especially to give us a chance at the season series...now gone. Was a gorgeous day for some not so gorgeous ball.

It was a beautiful day for a game. Perfect weather. Too bad the Reds couldn't get the offense going quite yet. But I think its close to a big breakout. If it weren't for Span making a couple of nice catches this would have been a different game. Just some bad luck on the Reds part. The Reds do need a LF in a bad way. Heisey just isn't an everyday player and Paul is suited to be a pinch hitter but not an everyday player. I doubt that platooning these two would make difference either. Some players just aren't suited to be everyday players or even three or four times a week players.
Hopefully Cingrani can be good again today. This is big test for him. First quality opponent and first road game he's started.
