    Re: The second-guessing game

    Sorry for the ancient bump. I was looking for a post someone made a few years ago in which a photoshop was done of Walt sleeping on the beach in a lounger. I couldn't find it and bumped this as it has lots of fun moments. I completely forgot about the whole Jermaine Dye era. I saw another great thread titled Reds searching for RH bat. From 2009. Good times.

    I probably should have just said bump with that being what I was doing.

    I have this if it helps.

    "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."

    Seriously, what an idiot!

    In my defense, at the time, Arroyo was one of, if not the Reds highest paid player, and the Reds were not contenders at the time. Since that comment was made, the Reds have paid approximately $50M for a 4.5 WAR. Considering the financial restrictions the team was working under at the time, I would not have signed up for $50M for that type of production over this time, so was it really that dumb of a comment?

    I've consistently underestimated Arroyo. Probably because I'm guilty of a fairly common mistake -- underestimating durability.
