I think it may be a play on words.
Castro-Red(Communist)
I've always made that connection.

Were they afraid Harang might scare people away?

Maybe there was a political-correctness obligation to include an infielder? JC has logged more time as a Red than any other Reds infielder.

When I first read the topic I thought "obviously Castro"

I think that the face of the Reds is Brandon Phillips...

Oh how I wish we could get enough votes to have Castro win. That announcement by ESPN would pretty much make the season for me.

Juan Castro is a great representative of the Reds in this decade. Just think of the players who have represented the Reds and all that they stood for through the decades: 1930s: Ernie Lombardi; 1940s: Bucky Walters; 1950s: Ted Kluzewski; 1960s: Frank Robinson; 1970s: Pete Rose & Johnny Bench & Joe Morgan; 1980s: Eric Davis; 1990s: Barry Larkin; and 2000s: Juan Castro.

That post is so true, so accurate.

It also makes my head hurt.

Personally, I think Dr. Kremcheck should be in the running. What a slap in the face to the man.

ESPN.. needs to also know the Ken Griffey Jr. is the highest paid Red as well as he makes 12.5 million a year it's just that it is being deferred.

I voted for Castro. I had to, if ESPN was stupid enough to put a poll out there asking who is the face of the reds and put Juan Castro as an answer I had to vote for him.

JD Arney's take on Face of the Reds ...


The face of the Reds franchise in 2007 is without a doubt utility infielder Juan Castro. He sucks. And the Reds have sucked for a long time. There is little redeeming about Castro as a player, just as there is little redeeming about a Reds franchise that seems adrift these days, with no clear plan of how to pull themselves out of the mess that has been the past seven years. The Reds have had plenty of players on their team the past few seasons that have no business being on a major league roster, but Castro is the worst, and he's the greatest example of why things are looking pretty bleak in Cincinnati these days.

If you're going to be mean-spirited, you might as well be funny. That's damn funny and so, so true.
