"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."
I have no problems with Kearns, either, and wish he were still in RF for the Reds.
As far as his dad goes, that's just a dad talking. It has to hurt to hear fans booing and cussing at your son.
I wish him the best, except when he's playing the Reds!

Reds fans are frustrated by a six-year slide after decades of living high on the hog. DC fans are in "Yippee, we've got a team!" mode.
Though Cincinnati should be careful not to become known as the little Philadelphia. It's become a bit of tough environment for young players.

I'm witchcrafting everybody.
I think Austin feels a lot bigger now that he's in Washington and away from all the booing.

As usual with Kearns, he accepts no responsibility for anything and blames his struggles on someone else.
It just seems that Austin got too "comfortable" in Cincy. If it takes a trade to wake him up, then I wish him the best and hope that happened.
Then again, he just signed a lucrative deal. Sounds like he's feeling comfortable again.

Its so funny how much Washington is Reds EAST. I didn't know Boone was the Nats' director of player development... who's next? Uncle Carl?
Tom Shearn... who knew?
Reds reccord when I attend in 2007: 6-1
someone tell mr.kearns maybe we wouldn't boo if he stayed healthy and would show some work ethic and not aggitate us when he comes into camp over weight
Indeed I'm sure that one of the reasons Krivsky obviously wanted to move Kearns was that an outfield of Griffey, Dunn and Kearns was, collectively, just too slow.
