    "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 guys really need to see the tweets all together. This guy is knee-slappingly funny.

    Astros Mickey Storey took one off the jaw tonight off the bat off of former one of our own Dave Sappelt.

    His wife @Mrs_McCarthy32 is hilarious (and gorgeous) in her own right. Their banter after he was so proud of peeing on his own was cracking me up.

    Couldn't they just cut the rest of his hair off?

    My cousin had a serious head injury when he was 9 and they shaved his head the same way. I think they just do what they have to for surgery and leave the rest up to the patient.

    Surgical teams tend to worry less about appearance and more about clearing the surgical field for the life-saving surgery that they're about to perform.

    Maybe I should have put a smiley after my comment, because I was really just being silly.

    He kind of looks like he has a Baseketball for a head.

    His twitter feed is a particularly awesome mix of humor, baseball nonsense, soccer and football chatter, and life observations.

    He'd be a tremendous follow even if he wasn't major league pitcher.
