Re: Radical Drw Stubbs idea, promote him
That great 70's scouting team passed on Mike Schimdt...Buddy Bell and Dave Parker.
If you were not small and fast (MS, BB) and had baggage (DP) you were not a Reds player. I venture to say after 1970-71.....the Reds scouting and drafting for the minors for pretty much the rest of the decade....was worse than anything DO and WK have done already. Seriously......it was all HS players.....and they all had to run fast......they figured if KLU could make Concepcion and Geronimo into hitters....he could make anyone a hitter.
They pissed on Moneyball type of players.
