    Damn! I was not making a prediction because I didn't want to jinx it and see someone take McKinney

    A certain poster continually referred to Alex G as Sea Bass. And it never caught on. Except he never gave up.

    seconded. It's always seemed like a mean, yet hilarious nickname. However, I've got no idea where it came from.

    reds44 used the nickname regularly for A-Gon, and for some reason it really bugged some people on Redszone.
    "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."
