Re: Five Least Favorite Reds Of All Time
Another Alex Johnson story. It was reported that while here, he was kept halfway in line by Pete Rose and Tommy Helms. Later, after apparently wearing out his welcome with the Angels, Milwaukee GM Frank Lane asked former Red's and then Brewer manager Dave Bristol if he had interest in acquiring Alex. "Not unless you can get Rose and Helms too" Bristol replied.
Funny but not unexpected I guess, to note that a few players listed as "least favorite" were some of my most favored. Dante Bichette, Steve Parris, Bruce Berenyi (like me, a Pepsi freak) and especially Paul O'Neill.
