    Reds 2004 - A season in Pictures

    Decided to throw this together, a mish mash of pictures I think offer a good look back at the 2004 season.

    Apologies to those folks on dialups...

    Please feel free to add your own images from the 2004 season that you found meaningful.


    First up.....THE CHASE FOR 500

    Griffey's chase for the 500 home run benchmark dominated the early part of the season.

    LARKIN RETURNS

    Along with Griffey, Larkin experiences a golden summer, making the All-Star team and flirting with .300, sparking the Reds offense nightly from the two hole.

    EARLY SEASON SUCCESS

    Reds ascention to first place in the Central coincides with several sweeps of top shelf NL teams and a rare appearence on the cover of Sports Illustrated.

    WAGNER, WILSON DIVERGE

    Paul Wilson makes himself the Reds pre-All Star break Ace, while Ryan Wagner, the shining spot on a dreary 2003 campaign, gets a rude "rookie" awakening before being shipped back down to Louisville.

    THE GLARE

    On a rainy spring night, Ken Griffey Junior sent a baseball far off into the night, cementing a Reds victory. Just moments after this picture was taken, briefly glared into the dugout at his former manager, Marlins current skipper Jack McKeon, which sets off a media firestorm.

    Sean Casey returned in '04 with a vengence, smacking hit after hit, seen here, hitting a game winning home run over New York just before the All-Star Break

    JIMINEZ, FREEL TURN OUT PLEASANT SURPRISES

    D'Angelo Jiminez and Ryan Freel both turn out above average seasons, surpassing most's expectations for either player. Freel in particular proved to be a jack of all trades, whether that trade be the OF, IF or inducing some type of collision, both on the field, and at times, slightly off of it.

    HOMER COMES TO CINCINNATI

    Reds signed seventh overall pick, high school phenom David "Homer" Bailey to a multi-million dollar signing bonus, and assigned him to their GCL club, where by all accounts, he excelled.

    WHAT GOES UP, MUST COME DOWN

    From the mighty perch of first place in May, back down propping up the Central by August, the Reds saw a potential wild card bid slip into oblivion just after the All-Star break.

    PITCHING WOES

    Rookie Joe Valentine turns out one the Reds worst Starting pitching performances of the season, getting rocked by Montreal in just under an inning.

    His struggles were a microcosm of the Reds overall lack of pitching, especially in the second half, where blown saves, blown leads and abysmal starting pitching doomed the team night in, and night out.

    Fans of all stripes were calling for the ascention of Brandon Claussen, who was busy leading AAA in strikeouts and walks. Claussen showed a glimmer of promise, but struggled mightily in his second go 'round in a major league uniform.

    PENA FINDS HIS WAY

    From almost on the waiver wire, to a nightly fixture in the starting lineup, Wily Mo Pena turned some heads and finally lived up to some of the tremendous hype heaped upon him during his Reds career.

    LARKIN'S FINAL CALL

    2004, amongst all other things, saw the final game of legend Barry Larkin in a Reds Uniform.

    A fixture at SS for two decades, Larkin came out with a bang during what would be his last hurrah as a Red, but went out with a whimper, missing most of the last month on the bench.

    It remains to be seen if Larkin's last game at Great American will be his last anywhere.

    But, just like everything in life, all good things come to an end, such was Barry's career, and such was the 2004 season.
