"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."

"You only have to bat a thousand in two things; flying and heart transplants. Everything else you can go 4-for-5."

I'm thinking extras.I bet no one can remember the last extra inning game off the top of their head.
Arredondo is in. He of the good splitter who is tough on lefties but walks too many.
