    I'd go for it.
    "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."

    Pass. Big time.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    I posted this idea on one of the managerial threads. I think he would be more valuable than any manager. He has worked his magic with the gifted like Maddux, Schmoltz, and Glavine, but also with the far less gifted like Denny Naegle, Kent Mercker, Jaret Wright, John Burkett, and Damian Moss.

    I'd put him in charge of the pitching for the entire organization.

    Please, I've had diarrhea ever since this Dusty Baker rumor started. I've had to miss work, order out, not allow anyone in my apartment, all because I can't leave the bathroom. Please, let this rumor be untrue.

    My wife is a first grade teacher, she brings it all home!
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Take heart, I've heard from some other husbands of teachers that eventually your body will be immune to pretty much everything

    God bless you!! I get upset when I find out from my daughter that kids are sent to school throwing up. I can only imagine what your wife goes through.
