    I would question Rolen's character if he didn't clash with them.
    Very good point.

    Not to mention the GM in Philadelphia while he was there and wanted a trade was Ed Wade. If I were going to demand a trade due to lack of confidence in the team improving, it would definitely be because Ed Wade was GM.
    "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."
