Reds fans don't go after Reds for being annoying.
They go after certain types.
If you are a Reds prospect, you can do almost anything and will be supported. Youth and a Reds organization pedigree -- priceless.
After awhile, if you are a Reds prospect having some problems, you may become the subject of debate. But fans should be careful not to be too tough
If you are a veteran from another organization, acquired by the Reds, you are more likely to be hit hard if you don't do well.
If you are a LIGHT HITTING veteran from another organization, or if you are a SOFT TOSSING pitcher from another organization, watch out.
