    Do you see him as a solid bullpen guy next year?

    What is his FB velocity and does it have movement?

    Agree with this. Rogers seems to me he could be a quality long reliever/5th starter type (and there's nothing wrong with that) or at worst a Greg Reynolds AAAA type. Either way, not a bad guy to have in the system by any means.

    He will be packaged in a trade in the offseason

    I think that Drew Cisco could be the next Chad Rogers/Sam LeCure.

    Yeah, I wasn't comparing him directly to Tony...not the same kind of pitcher at all. I was more comparing the splash he might make but Leake as a rookie would have been a better comp and they are more comparable as pitchers. Rogers needs a good changeup and maybe a wrinkle on his fastball or a slider. He has 2 quality pitches and 1 he's working on right now. IMO, it's how well that third pitch becomes as to his starting or relieving.

    In my book it means it was unintended when I began to type it, but midway through I realized it and I liked it a lot.
    "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."

    I believe that he could be, but I don't know that they will need him. His FB/SL will certainly play.
