Re: Greatest Hype Greatest Letdown All Time Reds Team
The 1982 team was full of candidates for this list. Householder, Milner, and Cedeno have been mentioned, but what about Clint Hurdle, Alex Trevino, and Householder's twin, Duane Walker. It seemed that the two were always mentioned in the same breath. While we're add it, let's go ahead and add the team's third baseman that year, Johnny Bench.
1983 brought us Redus and Nick Esasky.
Speaking of those years, the team leader in HR each year had only 17 (Driessen in '82 and Redus in '83). Johnny Bench was second on the '82 team with 12 and no other player had more than 9. The team hit 82 for the season.
