    The Reds and DBacks....

    Interesting to me is that Danny Richar who was picked up in the Griffey trade was previously a pretty highly viewed prospect in the D-Backs organization...that was prior to Upton and Drew.

    Why the love affair with the D-Backs players?

    Daniel Perales was obtained for Jon Coutlangus. He's been pretty bad.

    I doubt that we unconditionally love DBacks, but that is a team that's ready to trade.

    Didn't one of Wayne's assistant GM's come from the D'Backs?
    "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."

    Seems like only a few teams are willing to trade young players. The D-backs always seem to have some.

    Because they do an exceptional job of drafting and developing talent?
