This is why I like threads like this.
We are all familiar with the Reds' lineup, but for some reason, that Philly lineup fascinates me. There are a lot of guys on there who I was kind of a fan of - and I counted 22 total all-star appearances for the Philly starters. The only ones who never appeared in an AS game was catcher Ryan and left fielder Johnson - who was at least in the top 25 in MVP votes three times (including once with the Reds, 1965). The pitching staff also included the likes of Woodie Fryman, Chris Short and Rick Wise. On paper, a team that looks like it could have been good - but one which was one game from losing 100 that year.

I was surprised when I saw Don Money at SS. I remember him as a DH/3B for the "Harvey's Wallbangers" Milwaukee Brewers team that won the AL pennant in 1982. I never thought of him as a SS.

Larry Hisle played American Legion ball in Portsmouth with Al Oliver and Gene Tenace. That's one loaded team! :eek:
