    Yeesh.
    "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."

    Re: Reds sign Emmanuel Burriss

    Burriss is a good depth signing, given that the team needs a solid glove to backup Cozart (assuming Didi is in AAA, which is probably where he should be). Burriss is a good defender, can play around the infield, switch hits and has excellent speed. Pretty much a perfect profile for a utility infielder. He had some success in the big leagues as a 23 year old starter for the Giants a few years ago.

    Reds Sign Emmanuel Burriss


    In 60 games with the Giants this past season, Burriss appeared at second base, third base, shortstop and right field. The 27-year-old posted a .213/.370/.221 batting line in 150 plate appearances. Burriss, San Francisco's first round selection in 2006, would have been arbitration eligible this offseason if the Giants had kept him on their roster.

    Basically, but Burriss is six years younger and less allergic to walks. On the whole, a slight upgrade.

    He's got a lot more speed too.

    Probably all they're meant to be, too.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    Didn't the Reds trade Jeff Stevens for Brandon Phillips? Is that the same guy?
