    Danny Haren (and extras) for Mark Mulder is quite the bad mark on our GM's past resume.
    "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."

    Remember when Mulder, Hudson and Zito were supposed to bring the title to Oakland? That is a group of great pitchers when they were on their games.

    In 05 Mulder went 16-8, started 32 games, and threw over 200 innings. Its pretty fair to say that without Mulder the Cards may not have won the Central that season.

    Granted Haren was a high price to pay, I would pay a much higher price as a Reds fan for a WS championship.

    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.

    Yep, add Rich Harden and they were the big four.

    Those three outside of Harden might be the closest to ever matching Glavine, Maddux, and Smoltz in terms of overall talent.

    Maybe I'm an extreme optimist but I've got my fingers crossed that 3 of the 4 of Cueto,Chapman,Volquez,and Bailey might at the least give that Oakland group a run for their money.

    You've heard of TINSTAAPP (There Is No Such Thing As A Pitching Prospect)?

    I posit: TINSTAAPWDALTD (There is No Such Thing As A Pitcher Who Deserves A Long Term Deal)
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Let's not forget the Florida trio: Burnett, Dempster and Penny. Maybe not as successful but certainly had a lot of hype.

    I counter with the Mets' triumvirate of Paul Wilson, Jason Isringhausen, and Bill Pulsipher. In terms of hype, they had it in spades.
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.

    That kind of came with the territory.

    I wonder how much their success in Oakland (and lackthereof away from there) had to do with the Athletics' training facilities.

    Kind of like how there may have been more to the the Bagwell / Larry Andersen trade debacle than first realized.
