"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."
See, splitting Votto and Bruce can work when the middle guy gets a hit. Now this is a fun inning.
Rolen flies out.
We might have to resign ourselves to the fact Jay Bruce is a star.
Heisey pops out.
Heisey and Rolen are simply killing the last third of the order.
Anyone have the distance on Jay's moonshot?
2014 Reds record: 1-2
I look like a banker in this...
Hanigan was barely running and gets on with a bloop single.
Rolen at .183 and Heisey at .213
