Dante Bichette's production in his lone season with the Reds was disappointing, particularly in the field, but he always seemed to me to be giving all he had and to be a decent guy as well, so he didn't make my list of least favorite Reds. It is the guys who just quit on the team, such as Woodie Fryman and Bobby Tolan, that I don't care for, or the guys who were half nuts such as Rob Dibble and Alex Johnson.
