"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."
For those complaining about Samardzija keeping the Reds in check, please note that Jeff Suppan pitched 5 scoreless against the Brewers today. Jeff Suppan.
hang 'em up Rolen. Wow.
VBR IS LIVING IN CINCINNATI...I FEEL GOOD!
Rolen is off the books at the end of the year right?
I thought league average bullpen arms looked better than this
861 career ab's
341 with men on base
40% of the time, men on base
2301 career ab's
996 with men on base
43% of the time, men on base
1933 career ab's
874 with men on base
45% of the time, men on base
Doesn't look like that much of a drop off to me and you'd almost HAVE to expect a smaller percentage to be on for the 8 hole hitter.
With such a dramatic drop off in DP's hit into, I'd say it's a safe bet that he wouldn't hit into more in the 4 hole.
