    Mr Red used to be rougher looking




    If you were alive in 1960... you might remember Billy Martin as a Red



    Sunny Jim was Red... and wore his hat like a clown



    This guy was Red and is a answer to a famous baseball riddle (who was the 3rd baseman with Tinker, Evers and Chance?

    Forgot about that. He did us some good by leaving.

    Lets not forget Paul Householder and Alan Knicely. Just to name two more from those days.

    Does the name DT Cromer remind anyone else of Drew Nelson, who used to constantly lobby for Cromer to be promoted? "Show him the door"

    The Lizard generated plenty of posts on RZ back then as well. We were so desperate for a pitcher to have hope in.

    Remember when Oswaldo Fernandez was going to anchor our rotation? Yikes.

    Once again, Thank you Bob CAstillini for making this franchise respectable again.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Yep, apparently he held out and Gary Herrman didn't like that, the Reds won the trade though, getting Hans Lobert the original fastest player in the game ( he raced a horse)

    Fun fact: Mike LaCoss hit 2 homers during his 14-year career, and they happened in consecutive at-bats. The first was off Cardinals' utility man Dane Iorg in a blowout, the second off the Reds' Tom Browning.

    And then there's this:

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    You're not the only one. He was more highly regarded. I felt the same way, and wouldn't surprise me if one or more the co-GMs who made the trade felt the same way.
