    I'd say 98. 99 seems intentional, but 98 would just be pitiful.

    "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."

    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    72 It just seems like an offensive lineman that will get cut in training camp, er ah, spring training.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Carlton Fisk did OK with it.
