Reds Fan Since 1971
"On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."
Boxberger sent down by Padres to AAA today.
Todd Redmond, he of one start last year, picked up a win as the starter tonight against the Yankees and has been very solid for Toronto. I guess next year Greg Reynolds will go to Seattle or something and make 32 starts.
"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."
MLB Trade rumors reports that Volquez choose the Dodgers after getting interested from the Reds among others.

Dave Sappelt designated for assignment by Chicago. I do not believe he will be a minor league free agent this off-season since he was drafted in 2008.
Cubs Designate Dave Sappelt For Assignment
By Zach Links [September 3 at 3:03pm CST]
The Cubs announced that they have designated outfielder Dave Sappelt for assignment. The move makes way for the promotion of left-hander Zach Rosscup.
Sappelt, 26, came to the Cubs along with Ronald Torreyes and Travis Wood in exchange for Sean Marshall prior to the 2012 season. He hit just .240/.269/.280 this season and is a career .251/.301/.343 hitter in 274 plate appearances.

Sappelt cleared waivers and was outrighted to AAA.
