Oh man...I loved having D-Train on the team, and he was one of my favorite Reds during his time here. I remember a few games where the offense just wasn't getting it done, but Willis would then go to the plate and get a hit, only to stay on first or second because no one could knock him in and he would end up taking a loss.
You would expect him to be frustrated with so many games that season, but after every single one he would get on twitter, apologize and thank the fans and his team mates and tell everyone he would get a win the next time. I'm surprised no one tried to take him and make him into a position player. I really wish things would have gone differently for him that year and he would have stayed on the staff. Class act and good ballplayer all the way. Doesn't hurt my opinion that he was on a team that helped ruined the Cubs chances at a World Series either, even if he did get a loss in the NLCS.
