I was wrong about Homer Bailey: I thought he would be a elite power pitcher
I was wrong about Ken Griffey Jr: Disaster trade set up the lost decade
I was wrong about Sean Casey: Never became the hitter I thought
I was wrong about Danny Graves: I thought he could become a starting pitcher

I thought Chris Heisey would hit 30 home runs this year if he was given enough playing time.

Wow, I thought I was only one who thought this back then.
From same time period, I also thought Brad "The Animal" Lesley would be a dominant closer for years to come.

-This year's team being a WC competitor and not division, really. I figured we would lose the division by 3-5 games and get one of the two WC slots

-Griffey acquisition being the start of a new "era" of Reds baseball in a good fashion

Alonzo. Thought he would hit .300 this year. Not a power hitter so Petco shouldn't hurt him, as Welsh pointed out the large field spreads out the defenders to make it easier for a line-drive hitter to find gaps.

Perhaps batting cleanup gave him BP-syndrome, and he will flourish further down in the order.

I was wrong about Rolen having season ending surgery by ASB

Me too, I traded a Brady Anderson rookie card for an Eric Davis card, thinking he would be the next Messiah

I was unfortunately wrong about the Reds getting a new hitting coach before the ASB..

2010 being "the year."

Sabo being a 10-15 year veteran and HOFer

Arroyo being a burned-out hippie (maybe!)

Lol, Arroyo is a burnt out hippie that just happens to be able to pitch. Those JTM commercials are still hilarious, total classics!

Thank you, that was great. It'll make theses last 2 hours before the deadline much better. The only thing is you should post the longer one where the crafty left hander sheds a few tears. Arroyos face at the end is priceless.


NM, I saw the tears on the 2nd watch
