Even more so than Kessinger was Brian Koelling, who was called up because JimBo liked to please fans by putting local products on the field. Speaking of which, why else do you think we saw Pete Rose, Jr., Stephen Larkin, Mike Bell, Tim Belk, et al?
I could probably think of a ton of LOOGYs (Dan Serafini comes to mind).
I'm tempted to include post-surgery guys like Seth Etherton, Jeff Austin, Phil Dumatrait, and others.
There are some washed-up players who deserve mention e.g. Juan Castro and Paul Wilson.
Chris Booker always looked to me like he had never been on a baseball field before.
The 1993 team alone had a plethora of bad players due to injuries... 1989 as well.
Todd Benzinger (Ted Williams said he was going to be great when he saw him play for Boston)
Van Snider (This is what they got for Jeff Montgomery?)
Scotti Madison (Dolly could have hit better)
JeffRichardson (Got the team Billy Hatcher though from PITT)
Rolando Roomes (I liked him and thought he would hit, but he made Wily Mo Pena look like Eddie Yost)
Scott Scudder (Was he really that good in the minors?)
Mike Anderson (Looked great in Double A but was a batting tee, especially for Mark Whitten and his 4 homer game)
Greg Tubbs (Looked like Kirby Puckett...in the fact that he looked like a bowling ball with hands)
Chris Bushing (He threw hard......real hard but straight. He disappointed me. Reds Report Monthly magazine told me he was a prospect!)
Cesar Hernandez ( I will never forget that misplayed fly ball that started the Reds on 7 game losing streak and Tony Perez demise as a manager)
