    "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."

    Todd Frazier on the bench, eh? Glad to see Dusty playing the hot hand.

    No Frazier? Really?

    You have four players for two positions. Five if you include Cairo.

    They all are right handed hitters so there's no percentage advantage involved against right/left handed pitchers.

    So how do you divide up the time for Rolen, Frazier, Heisey, Ludwick and occasionally Cairo?

    Beats me. I have no clue. I'm sure Dusty has a reason, but it's really just an ad hoc sharing arrangement.

    They are all good enough (except Cairo) to deserve some playing time. When? Who knows.

    My guess is simply that Frazier and Heisey played yesterday. So Rolen returns today with Ludwick.

    I really can't remember another situation like this. So many guys with similar profiles vying for the same positions with no clearcut starters and subs.

    Frazier is having the best year, but he hasn't been declared an everyday player. None of them have.

    Whatever.

    No Frazier and no Heisey makes no sense, but whatever.

    Don't sweat the lineup....the Reds should win this game with Dusty picking the lineup out of a hat.

    Knock on wood.

    Yea, he's now a "hot hand" instead of tradeable scrub.

    Yeah, let's not do Cueto any favors and put the "hot" guys in the offense. Unreal.

    LOL. Dusty can't win. Scott's been out for how many days now due to the back spasms? He's got to play eventually guys.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG
