"Whitey" Richardson?!

You sir, have no soul.

Might I suggest Bruce Berenyi and Paul Householder?

That has to be it cause I've only heard of a few of those guys. Pretty sad, but they can at least say they made the show. haha

Pitchers-Jimmy Anderson, Jeff Austin, and just about any other 2003 starter.

Worst actual team? It has to be 1982, at least in my lifetime.

Pitchers? I'd begin and end with Milton, because he did absolutely nothing for 3 seasons. Josais Manzanillo would be my biggest disaster in the bullpen.

Danny Graves?


Danny was only bad at the end. As much as I didn't like him, he was pretty good at the beginning.

I think that was the guy that he gave the bird to on here saying Graves is the worst again.

How about Householder, Duane Walker, and Clint Hurdle taking over for George Foster, Geronimo, and Griffey SR. We were told that the output would not change. :(

No love for Jason Ellison in an OF spot?

Jason Ellison has the potential to break into the squad. He combines no power with poor plate discipline. His career statistics are declining at an exponential rate and he is a mediocre fielder. But to break into the ranks of outfielders that includes Steve pegues, Clyde Mashore, Tony Tarrasco, Ozzie Timmons, Jay Ward, would take an incredible amount of bad fortune, he would probably have to strike out about 500 times in a row and commit mass murder simultaneously.

Good stuff...Tony Tarrasco is a name I hadn't heard in quite some time...I am liking this thread topic. :thumbup:

Of course Tarrasaco was the Oriole right fielder who would have caught the Yankees hit except for fan Jeffrey meier.
Tarrasco was an epi c Red ranking among the pantheon with Al Ferrara, Dick Simpson, and Dan Norman

!B- Larry Biitner

Wasn't he the first free agent the Reds franchise ever signed?


OF Steve Gibralter

A bit of useless trivia for you:
He was nearly dealt, along with more fodder, to the Orioles at the 1996 trading deadline, right after Bowden had re-acquired Kevin Mitchell. Wisely, Angelos blocked the deal and the O's reached the ALCS.



OF Van Snider(traded for Jeff MOntgomery)

Call it Karma. Payback for Murray Cooke robbing the great John Schuerholtz--the Stillwell/Power for Danny Jackson deal.


RP Joe Hoerner

Good call. God rest his soul--He died in '96--the once All Star reliever for the Cardinals was a disaster in his final major league
stint with the Reds. I distinctly remember at least one multiple wild pitch inning, resulting in several runs for the opposing team.


SP Ace Sheldon Burnside
I actually liked the Champ Summers for Burnside deal at the time. What was I thinking?:rolleyes:

Great list!

How about when the Reds rapaciously raided the Dodgers and snared the legendary Adrian Burnside as well as the Luke Prokopec, maybe that was retribution for John Franco for Brett Wise.

Say hi to the great Ted Savage

Buddy Bradford send his salutations

If only Jeff Gray, Steve Foster, MIlt Hill and Ben Hayes could close more efficiently

This is some really funny stuff! Many mentioned have been forgotten, (there is some psychological term for that mechanism). There are so many more that most here are too young to remember!! We could cram the gates of baseball hell if we really tried!

The 2001-2007 Cincinnati Reds, an embarrassment to the franchise. Hopefully 2008 can erase this horror.
