    A rare Norris Hopper reference.
    "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."

    I think he is fast becoming, at best, the 5th outfielder and somebody who would be struggling for the 25th spot on the roster on a team capable of winning the number of games we'd like the Reds to win. (circa 90)

    Unless The Reds can get something going and get rid of this pitcher, the Reds will be 7-5 in their last 12 after winning 6 in a row.

    Diamond strikes out looking. 5 Ks for Leake.

    With Ludwick's offense turning upward and Stubbs back, I don't see a lot of PT for Heisey from here on out.

    Never underestimate Dusty's love for Heisey.

    Yep. Stubbs is WAY better than Heisey...

    I had a go round with someone this week who
    said that Heisey and Stubbs are equal. I say despite Stubb's flaws, I still give Drew the advantage.

    Nobody said he is way better. Personally I'd like to see neither of them on the opening day roster for 2013.

    Updates from the division Tigers still up 2-0 on the Pirates in the 5th with Verlander pitching. Cardinals up 5-2 on the Royals in the 2nd.
