Re: Greatest Hype Greatest Letdown All Time Reds Team
Woody Fryman is a good one, too - although his hype was mostly Wagner trying to explain the Perez trade.
Householder - oh yes! I remember all the hype - even the announcers carried on when he'd make a good play "Oh my gracious what an arm, what speed, great hustle on that one, what power!" Then they noticed the call for those kind of blurbs were getting further and further between.
And Jeff Jones. I got the same lesson. What 40 homers for Cedar Rapids was it? The then AA farm club? So they promoted him straight to the big league team.
