JIM BOWDEN RUMORS & GOSSIP

Down to The Wire With Red Sox And Cubbies?

According to Jim Bowden of MLB Network Radio, the Giants and Dodgers appear to have fallen behind in the Jon Lester Sweepstakes. Thus, the Cubs and Red Sox are now likely the finalists—and some reports indicate that John Henry's "groveling" apology for last Spring's low-ball offer may have had a positive impact on the lefty.

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...

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...
