This came to mind when I was looking at my collection of boobleheads. I had would say that Wily Mo Pena and Felipe Lopez probably are one of the worst Reds to get a promotion after them.

The Jason LaRue John Deer Trucker Hat. Hard to think of a worse promotion.

Todd Coffey man bra night was awkward. Every guy in attendance with a b cup or bigger got a free man bra with Todd Coffey's face on one breast and his number on the other courtesy of JTM. I think officially it was called the JTM Todd "Moobs" Coffey male chest support night.

I seem to remember a double-header double-giveaway promotion in 1976 for Mike Lum and Bob Bailey.

Are you certain you weren't attending this promo instead?


Cincinnati's most successful promotion was the American Girl doll outfit -- a doll-sized Reds jersey and reds hat.

I was there. I was also there for Coco Cordero Nexium night presented by Glaxo Smith Kline. Now that was a party.

Sean Casey-I'm biased though cause I can't stand him (I didn't say I hated or disliked him, I just can't stand him).

Who ever decided it would be a good Idea to Danny Graves to the big Leagues was off his/her rocker. Death/ heart attack related drop by 90% in the tri-state area after he left.

Danny Graves is the Reds all time leader in saves and will be in the Reds HOF in the future.

Why?

Same reason I couldn't stand KGJ, he never lived up to expectations and I just have horrible memories of Reds' teams that he played on (sans 1999). When I think of Casey I think of the lost decade.

Other reasons

1. He was fat.

2. He didn't drive in 100 RBIs.

3. HE didn't hit 30 HRs in a season.

4. He was too damn friendly with opposing players DURING the game.

5. He sang the Barney theme song last year while broadcasting a game.

6. He was a rally killer grounding into way too many DPs.

7. Hit .300 but seemed to never seemed to come up in the clutch.

I haven't been a fan for very long, but Jonny Gomes's bobblehead day was awkward. His average was .211, and the Braves had already come out and said they were actively pursuing him. He was traded to Washington a few days later for scraps.

So many callups have been bad? How about Norris Hopper? Wilkin Castillo?
Worst trade? Josh Hamilton for Edinson Volquez.

How dare you hate on the Mayor...sure he's a little much to handle on air, but he's one of the nicest guys and best pure hitters to ever don a Reds uniform.

You should be banned from this forum for slander...
