IIRC Mike Scott was a real Red Killer back then. It seemed like he always was on top of his game against the Reds.

I'm surprised to see that Don Pavletich started opening day at catcher rather than Johnny Bench in 1968. I recall that Pavletich reportedly had a good spring, but JB quickly took over. Bench caught 154 games that season, his first full year, enroute to winning the NL Rookie of the Year award.

I think Bench had just been up for a short stint in '67. And like you said, Pavletich had a good spring and won the catching job. But he got hurt the first week, Bench took over, and that was all she wrote.

(I remember this because I was a big Johnny Edwards fan and my dad was a Pavletich fan. Edwards got traded at the end of '67.)

In the same game, I remember when Adolfo Phillips was the next big thing for the Cubs. Leo Durocher called him the next Willie Mays.

This put up 18 runs???!!!


And who's this Randy Milligan guy in 93? Wasn't that in the Hal Morris era?

Coors Field in Denver is the answer. Before the humidor that was nothing but shooting gallery.
I don't really remember much about Milligan. I think he was a power guy who proved to have very little power.

One thing I found interesting is in 1968 at age 20 Bench was the ninth youngest player to play that year. Had he played in 2007 at age 20 he would have been the second youngest player that year. It's interesting that over time it seems the teams aren't as quick to bring players up to the big leagues as they have done in the past.

Ricardo Jordan? That's another name I have no recollection at all.

Ricardo Jordan was a journeyman minor-league left-handed reliever who the Reds had signed the previous November. If I recall correctly, he was added to the major-league roster the day before Opening Day when Dave Burba was traded to the Tribe and Mike Remlinger was moved from the bullpen to the rotation. The Reds were his fourth (and final) club in four years. A product of the Toronto organization, Jordan made his major-league debut with the Blue Jays in 1995, was traded to the Phillies as part of the deal for P Paul Quantrill in 1996, and then was traded to the Mets as part of the deal for 1B Rico Brogna in 1997. Jordan was only three days from his final appearance in the big leagues, as his last game was on April 13, 1998.

I don't really remember much about Milligan. I think he was a power guy who proved to have very little power.

Randy Milligan was a righty-hitting 1B who was signed by the Reds just before Spring Training to serve as the backup to lefty-hitting Hal Morris. He became the starter at the beginning of the 1993 season when Morris was injured in brawl with Cleveland pitcher Jose Mesa during a spring training game. He had a reputation of being a power hitter, but as cumberlandreds said, he proved to have very little power. After Morris returned, Milligan saw his playing time decrease, and in August he was traded to the Indians for OF Thomas Howard.
