JIM BOWDEN RUMORS & GOSSIP

ESPN Predicts Mets Trade For Seattle’s Brad Miller or Chris Taylor

Jim Bowden of ESPN.com predicts that the Mets and Mariners will eventually get together on a trade this offseason that will send one of infielders Brad Miller or Chris Taylor to New York in exchange for one of their back-end starters – namely Dillon Gee, Jon Niese or Bartolo Colon. Last week, an MLB executive told Adam Rubin that the two teams matched up well for a trade. And...

Jon Lester Will Not Be A Cardinal in 2015

Jim Bowden is the Trade Deadline’s biggest loser

Jim Bowden and I don’t get along. I don’t antagonize too many people on Twitter, but I made a couple of comments about some of his trade rumors a few years back and how downright silly they were. Denard Span for Tyler Clippard, about 5 years ago was the big one. Eventually, Span was traded, even to the Nationals, but for a much better long term prospect and about 3 years after...

Jim “Ralph” Bowden Is Having A Tough Time With Twitter Right Now

Something you should never do if you’re in the business of reporting: steal a (phony) scoop, try to pass it off on your own, realize the scoop isn’t actually real, change your Twitter picture to the default egg, change your Twitter handle, change the name associated with your new handle to “Ralph.” JIM BOWDEN DID ALL OF THAT IN THAT EXACT ORDER. Actually, I’m still a bit...

Jim Bowden suggests Reds could try to trade for Huston Street

Even the casual Reds fan knows how shaky the bullpen has been in 2014.Entering Thursday, Cincinnati's relief core ranked dead last in K/BB (1.97) and second-to-last in the National League in earned run average (4.24). In other words, not only are Reds relievers surrendering a high proportion of walks relative to strikeouts, but they are also giving up runs by the boatload. Furthermore...

It hasn't been a fun season for the 2014 Boston Red Sox, who sit nine games back of the AL East and five in the AL Wild Card. Jim Bowden reports not much is on the trade front horizon, either.Ben Cherington told us on #InsidePitch XM89 that if they were to add a piece between now and the trade deadline it would be an outfielder— JIM BOWDEN (@JimBowdenESPNxm) June 10, 2014The...

Jim Bowden: Don't sleep on the Reds

Look around at the majority of baseball publications this time of the year and let me know what you see. Chances are that you will find the Cardinals being picked as runaway favorites to win the division. Furthermore, you may also notice that many prognosticators don't have the Reds making the postseason at all.Listen, there are certainly plenty of questions and concerns with...

Jim Bowden gives Reds an offseason grade of 'C-' thus far

The offseason is far from being over, obviously, but the Reds haven't exactly been overly productive. Sure, they have bolstered their bench quality and depth with free agents Skip Schumaker and Brayan Pena, but outside of that, Cincinnati has yet to address the most important issues they had entering the winter.With that being said, former club general manager and current ESPN...

Jim Bowden proposes two maniacal moves Reds should make this offseason

In 1992, the Reds hired a 31-year-old named Jim Bowden to become their general manager, making him the youngest executive in both franchise and Major League Baseball history.Bowden's 10-year reign at the helm was far from spectacular, but it did produce a handful of winning seasons, most notably in 1995, when the Reds fell advanced to the NLCS.Now, Bowden currently serves as...
