Interesting.

With all of these lineups, I almost always can visualize the player, have a decent recollection of his stats, etc etc. Even guys like Joe Hague or Mike Vail.

I flat-out don't remember Darnell Coles at all. Draw a complete blank.

Two losses in a row to a bad Braves team. No wonder the Reds didn't win the division that season.

Darnell had some serious problems coaching high school kids this spring:

Seaver put up a 5.50 ERA that year, league average was 3.72.

That team was Mario Soto, the bullpen, and then blech.

Dave Concepcion had a decent year that year, hitting .287 with 5 HRs, 53 RBIs and 13 SBs.

Dan Driessen hit .269, led the club with 17 HRs, tied for the club-high with 57 RBIs, and added 11 SBs. He also led the team with a .368 OBP thanks to 82 walks.

Cesar Cedeņo led the club with a .289 batting average (.346 OBP). He hit 8 HRs and tied Driessen for the RBI lead with 57. He also had 16 SBs.

Rookie Eddie Milner hit a respectable .268 (.338 OBP), with 4 HRs and 31 RBIs. He led the club with 18 SBs.

Larry Biittner had a good year off the bench, hitting .310/.369/.413/.782 with 2 HRs and 24 RBIs as the primary lefty PH and backup OF/1B.

Bruce Berenyi had a very unlucky year, sporting a 9-18 record with a 3.36 ERA. (0.36 better than league average.) He had a 1.37 WHIP, led the league by inducing 29 GIDPs, and allowed only 8 HRs in 222.1 IP. (Sounds like an extreme groundball pitcher!)

Coles was a righty-hitting SS/3B prospect for the Mariners in the early 80's, then bounced around in a journeyman utility INF/OF role throughout the late 80's and early 90's. moving from the Mariners, to the Tigers (where he had his best season in 1986: .273/.333/.453/.786 with 20 HRs and 86 RBIs), to the Pirates, back to the Mariners, back to the Tigers, to the Giants, to the Reds (one year--1992), to the Blue Jays, to the Cardinals, and then finishing up with the Rockies in 1997.

In 1992 for the Reds, Coles was signed to be a righty-hitting backup 1B for Hal Morris, and to provide depth at 3B and the corner OF spots as needed. Coles hit .312/.322/.482/.804 with 3 HRs and 18 RBIs in 141 ABs that year. Incredibly, he had only 3 BBs the whole season! Defensively, he played 23 games at 3B (14 starts), 20 games at 1B (16 starts), 3 games in LF (2 starts), and 2 games in RF (1 start).

Make sure to check out the game log details for the top of the 4th inning. A buddy and I sat in the moon deck for that game, and that 4th inning is the longest inning I've ever had to endure at a ballgame.

First it was torture, then it became comedy.

That was the only game I went to that year, it was painful... and I was all alone.

That was the only game I went to that year, it was painful... and I was all alone.

There were 13 runs, 7 walks (5 by Dempster), 6 hits (1 home run, 1 double, 4 singles) in that 4th inning. I didn't realize this until I looked at the play-by-play, but the Phillies had only scored two runs in that inning by the time they made their second out. They scored 11 more runs with two outs in the inning before the Reds could figure out a way to find that third out. That's ridiculous.

Here's the second longest inning I've ever had to endure down at the ball park, this time while sitting in field level seats down the right field line: May 6th, 2005, top of the 1st inning (http://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/CIN/CIN200505060.shtml).

IIRC, that's the infamous inning Dan O'Brien was caught laughing on FSN, though since I was actually going through that misery in person I didn't see O'Brien laughing it up on TV.
