Reds:

Zach Cozart- 26

Fred Hutchinson- The Bear; a fearsome and wonderful manager.

Others:

Bob Buhl- One of those guys whose baseball card I always got a million of when I was a kid. #3 starter on some really good Braves teams behind Spahn and Burdette.

Harlond Clift- Underrated third baseman of the 1930s. There's a really good piece about him in the first edition of the Bill James Historical Abstract.

Ray Schalk- HOF catcher, one of the honest Black Sox. His nickname was "Cracker" which you couldn't do today, probably...

Christy Mathewson- Has anyone read his Pitching In A Pinch? It's supposed to be good, and I keep meaning to read it, but I never get around to it...

You need to move Mathewson to the Reds category!

I'm glad Cozart is a part of this year's team and hope to see him thriving as a starter next year. Happy birthday, young man!
