Re: Reds trade LHP Jeremy Horst to Phillies for infielder Wilson Valdez
I will ALWAYS remember Valdez for one of the worst at bats I ever saw. In 2009, Valdez was playing with the Columbus Clippers against the Louisville Bats, he was up with the tying run at third, the winning run at first, but only one out left in the game. He STRUCK OUT BUNTING to lose the game! I believe the explanation was that he saw the third baseman was way back, got excited, and forgot the situation, but Jim Kelch said it best "And Wilson Valdez has taken leave of his baseball senses!". Still, he should be a decent addition, and I wish Horst the best in Philly, as much as I hate that team, he was quite impressive with the Bats, and undervalued by the Reds.
