As the we all start to ponder what the Nationals might do this off season, and as it becomes increasingly apparent that the Lerners are saying, "heck of a job, Jimmy!" I thought I'd offer this list of former Bowden properties from the Reds who will be available this off-season, just for reference.
I'm leaving out any Pokey Reese / Bret Boone-type potential un-retirements, although by no means do I consider such an event unlikely (Reggie Sanders, anyone?). I'm also leaving out former Reds who never played for Bowden's Reds, like Josh Fogg or Eric Milton, since Jim's never really had a taste for those guys. And I'm leaving off current Nationals / former Reds free agents like Aaron Boone.
But if I missed anyone, which is certainly possible (there are so many crappy former Bowden properties floating around out there), feel free to let me know.
