Quite a pitching staff we've got going. What's uo with that?

Anybody know how how many former Reds are in the Hall of Fame who didn't go in as Reds?

01-06-2006, 05:55 PM
Dare we put Ken Griffey Jr on the list?

Lets atleast let this guy play one game as a red before we start bashing him.

... and Jack Morris

Okay, is my memory failing me here? What is Jack Morris' connection to the Reds?

EDIT: Was he invited to Spring Training one year?

01-06-2006, 11:37 PM
Jack Morris pitched with the Reds in spring training one year but retired before opening day.

:) Joaquin Andujar never pitched for the Reds, so I'd sub Jerry Reuss fo him. Some other names to consider would be Ken Henderson, Merv Rettenmund, Jim Kern, Hal McRae, and Julian Javier.

Joaquin Andujar never pitched for the RedsSparky thought he was too "High Strung"

01-07-2006, 12:26 AM
Don Newcombe, Frank Thomas (the white one) Harvey Haddix, Whitey Lockman and Alex Johnson.

01-07-2006, 12:33 AM
Jim Kern, for aesthetic and statistical reasons.

Sparky thought he was too "High Strung" :confused: Yet he kept Pedro Borbon around for his entire tenure as Reds manager!

After the 1975 season, the Reds had 3 pitchers who were out of options....Andujar, Pat Zachry, and Santo Alcala. As Pat Zachry told the story, Andujar was the most talented of the bunch but had a hard time getting along with his teammates and coaches. In fact, at Indianapolis in 1975 Ray Knight damn near killed him in a locker room fight. Andujar even alienated Tony Perez and Dave Concepcion in spring training with his attitude, and that was hard to do. Zachry said that every time Andujar won a game, he and Alcala would hear from pitching coach Larry Shepard how they were damn lucky that Andujar was such a jerk or that one of them would not be there.

His expressions of displeasure in Game 7 of the 1985 World Series made me think that perhaps Sparky was onto something.
