    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Re: They Were Reds: A Tribute

    Worst man in baseball history was Red



    Arlie Latham The Freshest man on Earth and the first coach in MLB history was once a Red



    Art Fowler the man who ruined arms for Billy Martin was a Red



    Babe Pinella the Reds all time season record holder for assists at 3rd was a Red before he was a famous umpire



    remember when thinking of your Reds vote early and vote often

    I can't think of LaCoss without thinking of his ginger afro. This isn't the best picture of it, and he was no Oscar Gamble, but still...



    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:

    http://baseballcardblog.blogspot.com...unleashed.html

    Hey, I’m Mike LaCoss! Check out my FORKBALL! Or split-fingered fastball, or curveball, or whatever! I don’t really like to classify my pitches. The point is -- my forkball does crazy stuff! It’ll bend your KNEES! I like to throw it when I’m angry, like when a batter tries to call timeout because I’m taking too long to decide which kind of forkball I want to throw! Arrrrgh! I hate that! But that’s when I’ll hit you off with the ol’ forky and you’ll be sorry you ever wasted Mike LaCoss’ time! How much you wanna bet I can throw this forkball over them mountains?! One time I threw my forkball so hard that it split into four baseballs and I ended up striking out a guy in France! I didn’t find out until three weeks later when the guy sent me a letter and all it said was “Nice forkball!” At least that’s what I think it said because I don’t read French! FREEDOM fries!

    Dare we venture into the wasteland that was the early '80s?
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg

    I saw a guy at GAB wearing a Jeff Reed jersey the other day. Odds are it was actually Jeff Reed.
