    Can we call him PeLo? :ughmamoru
    "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."

    Re: Reds acquire Pedro Lopez off waivers from White Sox

    There's considerable info on the AZFL website about it but in a nutshell: a.) its essentially by invitation only; b.) each team is allowed only 6 players (plus 1 or two other taxi squad guys), c.) about 55-60% of the guys that play in the AZFL end up playing in the majors. Its considered by many to be the graduate school for minor league players. If you're chosen by your club to attend the AZFL its safe to say, with few exceptions, they consider you a real bona fide prospect.

    Hope that helps

    I personally hope that it means something for a certain Mr. Castro.

    A .682 OPS in 2208 minor league ABs. But hey, at least he doesn't strike out much. Awesome.

    Per Rotoworld...

    At 23, Lopez still has youth on his side. However, it doesn't look like he's ever going to hit. He was at .242/.307/.323 in 161 at-bats for Triple-A Charlotte this season. He's a downgrade from Ray Olmedo as defensive-minded infield insurance.

    He's 23 and in AAA. Just that tells me he has to be pretty decent.

    Wonder why the Sox cut ties with him? He's been in their orginization his whole professional career, so them letting him go says something...

    Maybe they didn't think his bat would ever develop enough to hit in the big leagues?
