Reds:

Kevin Jarvis (42)- Hung arouond the fringes for quite a while, despite a career ERA over 6.

Pete Mackanin (60)- Current Phillie coach, was 41-39 as Cincy manager in 2007.

Others:

Madison Bumgarner (22)- We gave him an early present this weekend, eh?

Adam Jones (26)

Gregg Jefferies (44)- Two-time minor league player of the year, made the majors by age 19. Never became the superstar everyone predicted, but had some solid years, especially with the Cardinals.

George Bamberger- Highly successful as Earl Weaver's pitching coach; somewhat less so as a manager.

I hate Gregg Jefferies. I lost most of my college beer fund on his rookie cards. :(

I saw Jefferies in the Applachian League at Kingsport Tennessee. I thought he would be a star. Like many before him he flamed out once he made the show.

A few rough starts aside it really is remarkable how well he is pitching in the majors at such a young age!

Congratulations! Although I'm sorry about the 5:04 am part. Yikes! All 4 of my kids were born in the morning...but after 10am.
