    "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."

    Wish we had a four hole hitter but I don't see one in this team again this year.

    Should be Bruce but we can see he is picture next to streaky in the dictionary and this year the streaks have been short and not close together

    Rocco's .313/.378/.642/1.020 would look pretty nice at the 4 spot. I know he struggled there in limited AB's so far, but I think that was just a cold streak in general.

    agree but I thought he pressed even more in that spot -- give him time

    Todd Frazier is a cleanup hitter. Reds could use a high OBP second hitter.

    truth there but move him and then there is new hole in the dyke

    my preference is injured Votto in the 2 hole & Todd at 3 hole

    Votto would clog the bases. He can't score from first on s double and sometimes can't score from second on a single.

    1-0 Milwaukee after a double, walk, and single with 2 outs. Sigh.

    Getting about as much consistency from Homer as we're getting from Bruce.

    With the current incarnation of Votto, Dusty would be right. He's Ryan Hannigan. I'd put Votto in the 2-hole right now, but it isn't ideal because he's so slow. An Aoki or Jon Jay would work well, even if those two aren't world-beaters.

    Man, George Grande just breaks Jim Day's balls every minute of every broadcast.
