    Does happen to have a sister named Jessica?
    "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."

    Not that I'm aware. Feel free to ask him on Myspace, though. While you're at it, ask him if he's related to Ally McBeal.

    Josh Beal endured a three-game stretch in which he allowed six earned runs and five walks over three innings. He picked up a save yesterday, so hopefully he's back on track.

    Since Beal just made his 2009 debut (two innings of shutout relief), I thought this would be a good time to bump this up. Josh has already done much more than what you would expect out of a 44th round draft pick. Keep it up, Josh!

    I believe at least one of them is family. The picture is from a couple years ago, so I'm guessing they look a bit less goofy now.

    I just made an interesting observation. Josh Beal is the youngest player in the entire Reds organization who has played in AA or higher.
