    Or Burnett could give up 2 hits, a walk, and a grand slam. You never know. He's not exactly Sandy Koufax.
    "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."

    That's somebody I would've LOVED to have seen pitch. Koufax that is.

    Not really, Koufax was shorter, a lefty and had a bigger nose

    He had a rep as a poor defender before he came up. And that was at third where he had considerable reps. He hasn't done 1st in quite a while. It was pretty predictable....but you're right, I deserved to be called on that one. Well played.

    Saw him many times. After he got the hang of it, he was nearly unhittable. Hated him when he pitched for the hated Dodgers against the Reds.

    One time the Reds radio announcer in the ninth inning, with two out, said "The Dodgers players walk off the field, Koufax winds and throws, strike three, game over."

    Best pitcher I ever saw.
