"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."
Wow. How was he not out. Big argument coming here.

Holy crap, not even close.
While I think the warning may have been an overreaction, I don't subscribe to the "he threw a breaking ball" argument as a way to explain he thereby wasn't throwing at a batter. Guys can control a breaking ball enough to hit a batter with it if they're so inclined. And in my estimation, if you want to throw at a guy, sometimes doing it with a breaking ball is the way to go because of the saturation of the excuse that it's "only a breaking ball so he couldn't have been throwing at him."
Any ball at 80+ MPH is gonna sting a bit. Personally, I got the feeling Cueto was throwing at Molina.
Oh, and that was a TERRIBLE call.

What a horrible call. One of the worst I seen in awhile.
