    This trade could have happened....

    CNNSI:

    While Cueto was tearing up the Midwest League in 2006, the Blue Jays offered outfielder Frank Catalanotto for the smallish right hander. Cincinnati GM Wayne Krivsky, on the job only a few months, didn't reject it out of hand simply because he was still getting acquainted with the Reds' farm system. It took only a brief check with his minor league people to come up with an answer: That would be a definite no

    You mean we could have had Catalanotto? What an idiot that Krivsky is.
    "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."

    If that trade had been known about at the time I'm betting more then 50% of RZ would have been ticked it didn't go down, after all Catalanotto is a scrappy player

    Hearing the announcers say Coutlangus and Catalanotto together would not of been pretty.
