No sarcasm at all, every year it seems we hear how the team needs a Greg Vaughn on it, and while hits 45HRs were nice he wasn't the only guy on that 99 team to have a great year, if he'd been around in 2000 I doubt his "leadership" would have resulted in that many more wins, besides..that 99 team although very exciting and along with JR one of the big reasons I became a Reds fan lost 4 of their last 5 to fail to even reach the playoffs.
