    All I know is that I plan to be a young 40.
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    What? "...most people think I started with the Orioles." Hard to imagine.

    Thanks for posting that, Bob.

    Frank Robinson will always be one of my favorite all-time players. December 9, 1965, will always be a date stuck in my memory.

    Frank Robinson has been more gracious to the Reds than the organization has deserved. I'm glad they reconnected. I remember seeing the Reds games in Puerto Rico when he was managing the Expos and I thought, "There's a man who loves baseball. A Hall of Famer like him doesn't need to be doing this, but he is."

    Wait a minute, this article isn't about Frank's recollection of adding Kearns and Lopez to his squad in 2006 at all!
    "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."
