JIM BOWDEN RUMORS & GOSSIP

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 proposes trade to bring Marlon Byrd to Reds

You don't have to be a baseball expert to notice how badly the Reds need offensive help.Entering Sunday, Cincinnati's depleted offense had mustered just 14 runs in eight games since the All-Star Break. With top hitters Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips expected to be out of the lineup for several more weeks, the need to add an extra bat has become critical if the Reds want...

Dodgers Rumors: Los Angeles pursuing relief pitchers

The Los Angeles Dodgers fell to the Pittsburgh Pirates yesterday by the score of 6-1. Dan Haren allowed five runs on four hits in five innings to take the loss, while the offense managed only five hits off tough Pirates' pitching. The loss dropped the Dodgers to 56-47, a game and a half behind the San Francisco Giants in the National League West.  Although the Dodgers are eighth...

Rays Rumors: Could Tampa Bay be buyers?

With all the talk about the Tampa Bay Rays and whether or not they are going to trade David Price or not, there is now word that the Rays may be willing to add people heading into the trade deadline. The Rays are 7.0 games out of first place in the American League East but are currently on a seven game winning streak. So maybe the very recent success has put some spark in a struggling...

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...

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...

ESPN’s Bowden wants Cards to pay heavy CarGo fee

It is the time of year when real trade and free agent signing news can be scarce. As a result of having nothing of substance to report, people come up with dream ideas of their own. Former MLB general manager Jim Bowden, blogging for ESPN, has gotten into the spirit of giving by coming up with a whopper of his own invention. Last week, Bowden wrote a piece called “Getting great...
