For the life of me, I can't figure out the Reds' fascination with Rafael Landestoy. There is absolutely no reason he should ever hit ahead of Ron Oester! And German Barranca in the #3 spot?! What the heck was that all about?

That 1982 lineup.....it's like having Juan Castro hit 2nd and 3rd.

Dan Driessen was the only guy on that team who had a decent year with the bat ...and he was way down in that lineup.

I honestly cannot remember German Barranca. I suppose that is not all bad though.

German Barranca hit .255 with no HR's and 2 RBI's in 51 at-bats for the Reds in 1982. He played in 46 games that season, but made only six appearances in the field--all at 2B. The other 40 appearances were as a PH or PR. Barranca was basically a lefty-hitting Juan Castro with more speed. He was acquired from the Royals on January 21, 1981 in exchange for Cesar Geronimo.



That 1982 lineup.....it's like having Juan Castro hit 2nd and 3rd.

Dan Driessen was the only guy on that team who had a decent year with the bat ...and he was way down in that lineup.

Driessen was moved down to the #6 spot in the order by manager John McNamara because he was facing the "crafty left-hander", Chris Welsh. But it was OK for the lefty-hitting Barranca to hit 3rd. :confused:

Rafael Landestoy hit a robust .189 with 1 HR and 9 RBI's in 111 AB's that season. He was basically a switch-hitting Juan Castro with a little more speed.
