    Now the truth comes out... Jim Bowden was never....

    This just cracked me up. I wonder who gave Gammons this little rumor...
    You think JimBo takes any blame for the shambles that he left in Cincy's farm?

    Jim Bowden was never allowed to be big into the draft when he was in Cincinnati because he had owners who didn't believe in it, or its costs. But Bowden has been empowered to begin the reconstruction of the Washington Nationals, and threw himself into the draft. Bowden and the Nationals took the long-term route, with high-profile high school players like 3B Chris Marrero, Florida H.S. RHP Colton Willems, hard-throwing New Jersey RHP Sean Black and Orlando H.S. SS Stephen King. That is an indication that the new ownership is allowing Bowden to eventually trade for as much young talent as he can get, so the market for Alfonso Soriano, Jose Guillen, Livan Hernandez, Tony Armas, et al will be very interesting next month. Next to the draft, what Bowden enjoys most is making trades, so stay tuned.

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.
