Wait. Dusty Baker is playing CF and he is not leading off. Didn't he learn anything from his playing days?

This game had 5 future managers including 4 who managed the Reds. Rose, Perez, Johnson and Baker all managed the Reds. Johnny Oates (RIP) went 797-746 in his managerial career.

Anyone else think Corey Patterson at his best = Bobby Tolan? Both low walk, LH, speed players with some power who need to hit for decent average to avoid being a liability. But when they do hit for average in the .270's or so, they can be quite an asset. In the 70's Tolan hit third and we actually liked it. Hmmm?

Interesting comparison. Both were/are similar. Patterson may have had a little more power than Tolan. Tolan's career was wrecked when he tore his achilles tendon after the 1970 season. I think he did playing basketball. Even though he had a good 1972 season(comeback player of the year) he really was never the same and slowly faded from the MLB scene.

Reds are in 1st place by half a game after this game.

Darrel Evans had an interesting career. He hit over 400 homers and had over 2200 hits but only hit .248 for his career. He hit over 40 Hr's in 1973 for the Braves and then went another 12 years before hitting 40 again for the Tigers. He's not a HOFer but had a very good career that lasted 20 years.

The Braves of 1973 had three players with over 40 HR's. Davey Johnson led them with 43,followed by Evans with 41 and Hank Aaron with 40. They were managed by another power hitting HOFer by the name of Eddie Matthews. But for all their power they ended the season in 5th place, 22 games behind the Reds.

Check out Evans' walk totals.

He may have only hit .248 but his career OBP is .361 with 1605 career BBs. He was walking before walking was cool.

If you want to see a truly bad offensive season, take a look at Auerbach's '72 season. Rich was the ultimate light hitter utility guy - in '78, he appeared in more games than he had official at bats. As a youth of the time, I thought he was simply a superstar with the greatest team ever.

Capilla was a disaster on the mound with Cincinnati, save his first (1977) season. Any guy who starts three games and relieves in three others - yet manages to only get 11 total innings in - is a batting tee.

I thought Blue was supposed to be with Cincy by this time, being traded straight up for Dave Revering?

Meanwhile, Tomlin was one of the luckiest pitchers around. His numbers in '78 are terrible (1.89 whip, 5.78 ERA) - yet, he finished with a 9-1 record that year. I am guessing a lot of his wins were like this one - extra innings, or mop up rolls where the team's offense came back.

Baseball was always my favorite sport as a little kid, and I paid almost no attention to the NBA. If fact, I wondered if Red Auerbach was related to Rick Auerbach, because how cool would it be to be related to a Red? :D
