    I've always wanted to own the Reds. Let me check under my couch cushions.

    So the Cardinals are the 6th most valuable MLB franchise, worth more than a NY and a LA team, but are considered worthy of a competitive balance pick in the draft. Got it

    Darn, my wife won't let me spend more that $800 million on anything without her agreement and I don't think she wants to own a team at the moment.

    Besides having the money I think owning a team isn't an easy thing.

    And $885M is more than my Visa card limit.

    Teach tolerance.

    Haven't seen the Cubs in the top 5 of anything for a while.

    "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."

    Don't think it will be anytime soon, if ever in his lifetime. I think he really enjoys owning the the Cincinnati Reds. Good for him, and good for us as fans.

    Precisely. The Cardinals having a competitive balance pick leads me to believe there is a decision-maker within MLB that doesn't understand what the term "competitive balance" means.
