    Solid inning for Broxton. One bloop is all.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Valdespin is not the man now.
    "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."

    Hank Aaron - HOF
    Ken Griffey - Future HOF
    Miguel Cabrera - Future HOF

    Not bad company.
    Cesar Cedeņo...that was someone I was trying to think of when this conversation started. VERY good comp for Pinson. (On the field, at least. Definitely NOT in terms of off-field citizenship!)

    The bullpen is back. The last week with Broxton and Maeshall allowing 4 runs in 6 innings, I was worried. Now if Ca
    Gap an can do as well

    Both were very fast, though.
    Yes, I agree. It's amazing how few steals those fast guys had who played in the late 50's and 60's. Curt Flood had less than 100 steals in 12+ years.

    Vada was my favorite player growing up -- he was why I played CF mostly -- why I learned to switch hit so I could hit from the left side --- why I was a Reds fan
    The older I get - the better I was

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

    That would've been out of many parks I think.
