    Sad news. His idea in the movie for peeling a section off the poster of the Indians owner for each win was classic. Any ideas for some one Cardinal related to peel for each Reds win? Please no mention of Dennis Reyes!

    This is especially disappointing as there was talk of another Major League movie, and he was discussed as reprising his role as Lou Brown.

    It's funny cause he just did 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."

    Great movie, great character!

    I know a lot of people are talking about his on-base percentage (.308 in 2008), but I like to think more in terms of him his in-scoring position percentage. - Our Beloved Manager
