Tim Belcher ... because the Reds traded Eric Davis in order to get him. I probably should have hated Bobby Kelly for the same reasons, but I was never a huge Paul O'Neill fan and I actually enjoyed watching Bobby play. Belcher, OTOH, would have had to put up Pedro-like numbers in order for me to forget that he came at the expense of the most gifted OF I had ever seen.

Honorable mention to Wade Rowdon, if only because when I was collecting baseball cards in '87 i got about a zillion of his cards of him standing in his warm-up jacket with that lost expression on his face.

Russell Branyan, I have personal reasons for this. My Mom is one of the nicest people in the world and a she was a manager of a card store. Anyway a few years ago Branyan comes in to her store was a total jerk to my Mom. He was basically upset because they were busy and he couldn't be waited on immediately and he was upset that my Mom didn't recognize him. He was so nasty and rude he made my Mom cry so I will always hate Russell Branyan.

Rich Mahler just passed away a month or two ago. I liked the guy. He toiled in obscurity with the Braves for years before the Reds picked him up in 1990 and he won a ring here.

Danny Graves
Reggie Sanders

I don't think I've ever rooted for a Red to do poorly until Danny Graves came into the game Wednesday night. After his idiotic comments about the fans and his poor pitching I was really hoping he'd stink the place up. So I guess that moves ol' Danny to the top of my Least Favorite Red list.

I think hate is also a harsh word. I think dislike or couldn't stand fits better.

I would go with:
Hector Carrasco - awesome one day, horrible most others

Gary Redus - all that speed and wasted it trying to be a power hitter

Kelly Paris/Tom Lawless (sorry Tom Lawless Fan) - just cause when I went to Sunday day games a lot and they seemed to always be starting

Willie Greene - most lethargic player ever

That's just off the top of my head.

I really wanted to hate Kevin Mitchell, just because I thought he had unlimited potential and p*ssed it away by partying and generally not taking his job seriously. However, the big galoot was just so darn loveable I couldn't bring myself to hate him.

Here are some of my favorite Mitchell highlights:

+ In 1990, he was four days late to spring training because he got injured eating a microwaved donut

+ Injured himself while eating a cupcake - though this is heavily documented, details are scant. It may be an offshoot of the oh-so-true donut injury.

+ Missed a game after straining his eyelids while vomiting

+ Became the first player in Cleveland Indians franchise history who was unable to complete an 850-yard training run.

+ Landed on the DL because he strained his ribcage while vomiting

+ As a member of the Western League's Sonoma County Crushers, Mitchell was suspended for 9 games after punching the opposing team's owner in the mouth.

+ In 2002, as manager of the Sonoma County Crushers, Mitchell was suspended for 7 games after punching an opposing team's 3rd base coach. The coach was apparently stealing signs...

How could I possibly hate that guy?

No joke, I have it on good authority that Todd Benzinger actually held a franchise record for "Most Videotape Rentals in a Single Month" from the Blockbuster Video on Beechmont Avenue.

He was going into the store and renting 5-6 videos at a time, bringing them back two or three days later, and then renting another set.

Bob Boone for obvious reasons.

Bill Scherrer was the first Red I disliked as a kid. I have no idea why. Maybe the Scarecrow was just built too funny for my 9 year old eyes.

I do remember Jerry Reuss & Dennis Rasmussen getting me T.O.'d a few times.

Kelly Paris...ugh. Keefe Cato.

I see some of my favorites on the hate list. Kal Daniels, Pokey...I even liked Deion as a Red.

Bob Owchinko was cool. I remember those programs they used to have at the gate.

"What's your favorite kind of music? What's your favorite food? Etc." But my favorite was Owchinko's answer to "If you could be anyone else in the world, who would it be?"

Hernandez was so bad that Burbank had a song he played for about a week straight in honor of him. It wents something like "It was a flyball high, it was in the lights, Hernandez". Burbank really hit on that one.

Curtis Goodwin mostly because they gave away David Wells for him.

Your Kevin Mitchell memories prompted me to do some googling and came up with two ESPN Page 2 stories that had me crying with laughter in about 3 minutes:

1.) "Squeeze Play" (http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=list/050425&num=1) is an ESPN Page 2 story about the history of "Fat" players in baseball. Highlights include the aforementioned Kevin Mitchell and and the sad story of former Tiger Gates Brown, who was minding his own business in the clubhouse, fixing himself a hot dog or three, when the manager called him to pinch hit. Mr. Brown decided to shove the hot dogs down his jersey and go to his at bat, which became a problem as he slid head-first into second on a double and stood up covered in mustard, ketchup, and hot dog bun.

2.) "All-Bizarre Injury Team" (http://espn.go.com/page2/s/holloman/020307.html) features such loveable stories as Ricky Henderson missing a game because of frostbite in August, and Glenallen Hill missing a game after smashing a glass table and claiming he was dreaming about spiders attacking him.

I love Baseball. :laugh:

Kevin Mitchell brings mixed feelings. I loved the talent he had, but his work ethic left a bit to be desired. I remember a day game I went to, I think in '93, where he hit a homer into the yellow seats and then one into the red seats his next at bat. He doubled in his third at bat and then was taken out for a defensive replacement. On the way home I had on WLW and Gary Burbank said, "So he hit one in the yellow and one in the red. If he had hit one into the green seats he could have hit for the rainbow." I still get a laugh out of that. That had to have been two of the most impressive at bats I've ever seen though. All that talent and he let it go to waste. What a shame.

My post actually doesn't fit this thread, but i liked Deion Sanders. Especially having him seen live for the Reds was quite some joy ... players who are always a threat to steal or to run out a double where others whould have ended up with a single are exciting. Especially if they are also booed by the opposing fans.

Back to the topic, I don't like Graves very much (especially his attitude) and heard quite some negative stuff about Chris Stynes.

OldRightHander
05-07-2005, 04:28 PM
I haven't heard much about Stynes, but I have a story about him. I was up in Milwaukee on business one weekend a few years ago and my trip happened to coincide with a weekend series between the Reds and Brewers at County Stadium. I bought a nice seat for the Sunday afternoon game and just went to the Friday night game on a last minute whim and bought a cheap seat in the left field bleachers. I was sitting around a rowdy group of high schoolers who were giving me unending grief about wearing my Reds cap. Stynes was playing left field that game and those kids were taunting him something fierce the entire game, saying all manner of things about his mother and questioning the legitimacy of his birth. At one point he dropped a routine fly ball in left for a 2 base error. The ridiculing kids really kicked it into high gear at that point and Stynes just turned around, faced the stands, tipped his cap, and gave them a very elegant looking bow. That shut them up for a while.

Where to start?
1)Jimmy Haynes: Did any pitcher get a bigger head after the fluke 2002 year like Haynes? He acted like he was the king of all pitchers and he deserved special treatment. When anything went bad, it wasn't Haynes fault because Haynes was king!
2)Ryan Dempster: Granted he was injured in 2003, but his actions like he was always coming around to pitching like the "stud" he was supposed to be and his verbal tirade at Lopez in 2003 pretty much showed what he was all about, go cry with Jimmy.
3)Pokey Reese: turned hat, prickish attitude. Enough said.
4)Mark Portugal: Another pitcher with a "I am King" attitude who wasn't very good. When the Reds got him at the tale end of his productive career in 1995, he never seemed to want to take responsiblity for his mistakes as a pitcher, sound like any other pitcher on this list?
5)Danny Graves: Graves always had a snotty attitude about his failures, but from 99-2002, he at least was a good BP arm. When he came back in 2004 from a failed starting bid with a weaker arm, he was still partying like it was 1999 in complete denial and everybody else was crazy who said differently!
6)Dante Bichette: Simply couldn't stand the guy. Players in denial about their own physical limitations do to aging really can grate at you. I remember the beginning of Redszone, people would pick constant fun at Dante and call him consistantly by his first name. Oh the days of Young/Griffey/Bichette.
7)Jim Bowden: Odd name on the list, but his constant "belief" he was developing pitching and then not squirting a single drop onto the ML team was embarrasing.
8)Tom Browning: This guy had a good/evil persona, you never knew what you were going to get.
9)90's Marge Schott/Carl Lindner: Neither really knew/knows how to build a ML Front Office though Schott was able to get away with overbudgted payrolls from 92-95 before she ordered a payroll of 24 million in 1998. Lindner doesn't know how to hire good baseball people. He wasn't comfortable with Krivisky and went with O'brien, a person who seems overwhelmed by this job and seemingly easily told what to do(he doesn't even put a final say on the draft picks for crying out loud).
10)Rob Dibble: A real live punk. Really represented a era when the fans didn't care for the players on the field.

Dislike a Red that takes the field? Impossible. When they play for the Reds, no matter how poorly, I don't dislike them. Ever.

But to me, as crazy as it sounds, the Reds are bigger than baseball; I simply wouldn't follow baseball without the Reds. But I'm a weirdo.

Trust me, I'm not trying to sound all righteous or anything. It's just the truth. I can't dislike anyone wearing the red, white, and black.

I'm sure I'll get negativized for that.

Hate is a strong word but my least favorite current Reds players are Sean Casey, Danny Graves, and Jimeniez. As for all time Ray Knight and Paul O'Neill top the list.

Jimmy Anderson. Although I sure didn't hate to make fun of him (all those donut jokes still kill me), I definitely hated to watch him pitch. More than ever, I probably hate that he was signed because the Reds were the one team he was ever lights-out against when he pitched for the Pirates.

CE, that Todd Benzinger stuff about Blockbuster just totally made my day. :)

Rich Aurilia is moving up the list, but it's mainly because he keeps getting starts over Kearns

When did Kearns start playing shortstop?

Freel in RF over Kearns, Lopez at 2b..where Freel should be so we can get Aurilia in the lineup

Also Todd Benzinger, simply because in Piqua where I grew up there is a man who has a Todd Benzinger museum in his house.

*quickly hides his Benzinger collectables*

Yeah. Todd sucked! (kidding, never really thought anything about Benzinger).


anyway, my list of most disliked Reds (hate is too strong for myself as well):
John Riedling - geez, i hated watching him come into the game the last couple of years. looking at his numbers is like watching a rocket ship - up, up and up.
Dave Parker - another one of those "so much potential, so little done" type guys.
Leon Durham - didn't he get busted for drug use sometime? not exactly one you would want on your team.
Juan Samuel - terrible. attitude.
Jose Guillen - yeah, he was pretty good, but he had (no...still has) one of the worst attitudes i've seen - this guy will never grow up. frankly, i think his attitude in the '03 clubhouse only helped bring the clubhouse down to the level it still seems to remain today, the "me first, there is no 'we' in team" attitude.
Danny Graves - frankly, i never really cared about the guy one way or another - until earlier this week. nothing like berating your fanbase as an excuse.

Dibble. Hated him, ever since he winged that ball into the stands a busted that woman's elbow. And standing up on Fountain Square and yelling, "Hey, Cincinnati! We kicked there ASSES!" was just pure class.

I'll take a Rob Dibble any day of the week in this bullpen over the gunk that's in there now

I will have to say Ron Robinson, Bret Tomko, Rob Bell, Vince Coleman, Gookie Dawkins, Brandon Larson, Josias Manzanillo. At one time or another these men all took time off of my life.

WILLIE GREENE!!!!! As a teen I would buy his baseball cards (for mere pennies I might add) just so i could come up with creative ways to destroy them.. I really disliked him..

As soon as Aurilia is either released(hopefully but not likely) or is off the team, he will jump quickly on this list for me.

Sounds more like Dave Miley should be moving up the list. ;)

1. Ron Gant-Left after the Reds gave him a 2nd chance.
2. Reggie Sanders-struck out too much, stayed hurt, and was a MAJOR factor in costing the NL title for the Reds in 1995, and is now a Reds killer.
3. Greg Vaughn-Cocky rent a player
4. Jimmah Haynes, Jimmah Anderson, and Danny Graves-obvious reasons
5. Sean Casey-the guy just annoys me, why was he talking to Milton Bradley at 1st last night? It was pretty obvious that Bradley did not want to talk to Casey.


Honorable mentions
Melvin Neives
Donnie Sadler
Eric Davis (1996 only)-see reason for Ron Gant
Paul Wilson-The guy is a slob, also after he left Farnsworth beat him up I lost a ton of respect for him
Paul O'Neill-for his comments about the difference between winning in New York and Cincinnati
