"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."

"The guy I think could be really good in center is Adam Dunn. If someone asked me if Dunn could be a center fielder for the next 10 years, if he started working on it, no one could explain to me why he couldn’t do it." - Brad Kullman

Hopefully we just see Reynolds for a start or two, but I do have hope. The guy is tearing up AAA, and I would think someone who is capable of doing that all year is also capable to put up a couple serviceable starts up north.

we were spoiled last season, five guys had 161 starts, only one scrub start....

To be expected from a guy his age still in AAA. Not a lot of K machines in that group.He didn't seem to have a way to put away hitters.
If Reynolds is hitting his spots, he can get groundballs. He's shown tremendous consistency this year. Let's hope it continues for a couple more starts...

They'd have a better chance if Frank Reynolds was starting today in place of Greg.
Sorry. I can't pass up the chance for an Always Sunny reference.
Pray for Rain.
At least it's the Brewers he gets to pitch against and not the Cards. Brewer's lineup isn't Harvey's Wallbangers without Braun and Hart.
...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.
Khrys Davis might beg to differ. He's been doing the Bill Hall thing against our boys of late.
Pray for Rain.
Someone convince me that Reynolds should not be skipped with the off-day tomorrow. Yeah there are no upcoming off-days for awhile but I don't see a problem with letting our regular guys go every 5 days for a couple weeks.
