    I don't know that Nix was much maligned; he was certainly more popular than Gomes most of the time.
    "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."

    Nix was "more popular" I believe because he was pretty good in the field. At least much better than Gomes was.

    I haven't reviewed the numbers so forgive me if I'm remembering incorrectly.

    But I thought Nix hit very well at the end of his Reds' stint.

    In other words, he started slowly as a Reds hitter, improved, and then was cut.

    Something like that, if I recall.

    Nix was fine both years as a Red. A good lefty 4th OF.

    He wasn't cut, just was a free agent and not re-signed. The Reds felt that they could replace him for less money. I believe Jeremy Hermedia and Fred Lewis were signed to replace him, and the Reds were hopeful that Francisco could also possibly take his place.

    Sappelt is a .302 hitter in AAA with 46 walks and 66 strikeouts in essentially a full seasons worth of time there. He is fine at the minor league level. And after his first 10 games in the Majors, he was fine there too. Those first 10 games were a brutal adjustment though.

    Yonder had his first career 4 hit game last night. I have always thought hes going to be a very good major league hitter. Nice to see him doing well in his rookie season

    The trade of Grandal always concerned me, still does.

    The others, no concern whatsoever.

    Well, if Dusty sticks around, Grandal wouldn't be able to get anything resembling 'full time' until Mesoraco is in his last year before free agency anyways. Can't let rookies catch.

    I miss Grandal too, but I also think we will come to regret trading Alonso. I'm not sure how much power he will produce but he is going to hit and will have a strong OBP because he has terrific pitch recognition and bat control. All I can say is that Latos had better produce to make this trade look like anything but a hosing.

    I know we are all over the Edwin deal but figured I'd post this:

    He leads the majors in home runs with 9. On pace to hit 54. .290/.350/.629

    Good to see him stepping up his game!

    No, he leads the AL. Matt Kemp has 12.
