"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."

Ball game Sac fly to right. Reds lose 2-1.
1 freakin' run again.
Scored the winning run without a hit... ugh.

This just isn't that fun right now.
This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.
