Re: John Erardi: Buzz surrounding Reds comparable to 1992
92 was a really fun year. I remember Opening Day that year. Bip Roberts chirping at Bruce Hurst when he was on base, and Hurst yelling expletives at him from the mound. I've never seen that happen again.
That was the first year Post Eric Davis as well.
That was also the year Atlanta traded for McGriff and signed Maddux. They were just way too good for the Reds to overcome.
The 90's were a pretty good time to be a Reds fan. Competitive teams in 92, 94, 95, and 99, and a Championship in 90. There was no middle of the road, however. Jim Bowden and Marge were a volatile mix.
"....then Carps replacement the following year will win ROY and MVP and might get a CY young vote for pitching and playing 2nd base at the same time.
I have come to expect those types of scenarios with the Cardinals and it makes me sick." - Lidspinner
