I was at this game. It was a Businessmen's Special, and I got the worst sunburn of my life that day. I looked like a lobster. Before the game, they had the father-son game, and the best kid on the field that day was Juan Castro's oldest son. (I think his name was Alex.) The Pirates jumped out early with four in the first--an RBI double by Giles, and a three-run HR by Young. But the Reds came back with three in the bottom of the inning on a three-run jack by Brandon Larson. The Reds then took the lead for good in the third inning on a grand slam by Walker, followed by a solo shot by Stinnett. A good time was had by all, as I didn't feel the effects of the sunburn until a couple of hours later! :D

Once again, the 1982 lineup brings the bile to my mouth. Duane Walker in the 3-spot. Ugh.

I would have preferred Larry Biittner in LF if Cedeño was not going to start. But maybe Russ Nixon wanted to evaluate some of his younger talent (Walker).

They seriously didn't have much to work with that season. The Reds had only six players with a .700+ OPS that season, and only 10 players with a .650+ OPS! Here are the averages (AVG/OBP/SLG/OPS) for the position players that year (starters listed first, then bench players by at-bats):

.251/.318/.304/.622 - C Alex Treviño (355 AB's)
.269/.368/.421/.789 - 1B Dan Driessen (516 AB's)
.260/.303/.359/.662 - 2B Ron Oester (549 AB's)
.258/.320/.396/.716 - 3B Johnny Bench (399 AB's)
.287/.337/.371/.708 - SS Dave Concepcion (572 AB's)
.268/.338/.378/.716 - OF Eddie Milner (407 AB's)
.289/.346/.413/.759 - OF Cesar Cedeño (492 AB's)
.211/.265/.326/.591 - OF Paul Householder (417 AB's)

.218/.298/.322/.620 - OF Duane Walker (239 AB's)
.254/.274/.381/.655 - OF Mike Vail (189 AB's)
.283/.324/.358/.682 - 3B Wayne Krenchicki (187 AB's)
.310/.369/.413/.782 - OF/1B Larry Biittner (184 AB's)
.212/.253/.248/.501 - 2B Tom Lawless (165 AB's)
.182/.263/.219/.482 - C Dave Van Gorder (137 AB's)
.189/.250/.243/.493 - 3B/2B Rafael Landestoy (111 AB's)
.217/.258/.337/.595 - OF Gary Redus (83 AB's)
.255/.283/.392/.675 - 2B German Barranca (51 AB's)
.222/.364/.267/.631 - C Mike O'Berry (45 AB's)
.206/.270/.235/.505 - OF Clint Hurdle (34 AB's)

And the hitting numbers for the rotation:

.167/.213/.214/.427 - P Mario Soto (84 AB's)
.242/.238/.306/.544 - P Bruce Berenyi (62 AB's)
.172/.186/.259/.445 - P Frank Pastore (58 AB's)
.143/.163/.143/.306 - P Bob Shirley (42 AB's)
.176/.222/.235/.457 - P Tom Seaver (34 AB's)

Bip Roberts had a huge year in 97, at least for the Bip Roberts' of the world, it was huge.

Duane Walker belongs to the Roy Tucker "thought he was going to be good but wasn't" hall of fame. Other members include Kurt Stillwell and Harry Spilman.

His membership is based on one game where I saw him hit 4 line drive shots that were all caught and I thought "dang, he can really smoke that ball".

Seems that 1984 was a better season for Walker (292/.391/.528 in 195 ABs) and I thought he was on his way. But he did nothing after that.
