This is tantamount to getting killed by a gun, a knife, drowning or falling.

I thought this would be somewhat of an interesting poll to see what everyone thought about our nemises.

our team? another team? current guy? past guy?

Do you mean, "who do you not want to face"? If so, I choose Billy Hall and/or Lance Berkman. Both of those guys destroy us.

Against the Reds and which one do you want to face the most i.e. which one is less likely to beat the Reds.

I must be crazy because I chose Bill Hall, but he is by FAR the worst hitter listed...

04-30-2008, 11:38 PM
Given those choices, Bill Hall is still the least dangerous in spite of his history of killing the Reds. He's simply not on the same level as Pujols, Berkman or Aramis.

Bill Hall without a doubt. Unlike the others you listed, Bill Hall will chase pitches out of the zone, especially a nice slider down and away. Unfortunately the Reds haven't realized this. The Reds of those guys are patient hitters who rarely chase bad pitches.

In that order...

did you go back and add a poll or did I completely miss it the first time I looked at this thread?

Anybody but Bill Hall.

I'd take Aramis. He's killed the reds, but doesn't have the same rep as a RED-killer. (and the lowest OPS of the 4, BTW).

05-01-2008, 09:35 AM
All of them have the numbers that say that they could get the job done.

Aramis seems to have a lapse now and then, I would pitch to him and :pray:

05-01-2008, 10:26 AM
Pujols. Just because it's more satisfying when he fails.

05-01-2008, 10:29 AM
Would it be in the first inning? cuz that's typically when the game is on the line for this year's Reds

05-01-2008, 10:40 AM
I'd pitch to Pujols.

And by pitch to Pujols, I really mean drill him with a fastball.

05-01-2008, 11:34 AM
Pujols..easy out :D

Of the 4 choices, in order that I'd want to face...


Prince Albert (in a can) is the guy I least want to face, followed by the Reds Killer Bill Hall, then Fat Elvis (Lance Berkman), then Mr. Ramirez. It's a shame that baseball is in a current state where you can't have purpose pitches, or else each one of these guys would get one in the earflap at least once a series when we face them.
