    Five Least Favorite Reds Of All Time

    As much as I love my team, I understand the possibilities of them having individual players I do not like for various reasons.

    In no particular order.....

    Deion Sanders

    Dante Bichette

    Jim Kern

    Cesar Cedeno

    Manny Aybar

    You forgot Rob Dibble.

    Re: Five Least Favorite Reds Of All Time

    Here's my list....

    1) Paul Householder
    2) Alex Trevino
    3) Tracy Jones
    4) Willie Greene
    5) Mike LaCoss

    Householder & Trevino because they represented to me all that was wrong with Dick Wagner. Jones because he refused to learn to play 1B after the 1986 season, and rookies don't refuse requests from management. Greene because he 1) was overrated and 2) we traded John Wetteland for him, and LaCoss because he told a 14 year old and 11 year old (my brother and I) to go @%$#@ ourselves when we asked him for an autograph in 1978.

    1. Woodie Fryman-acquired from the Expos for Tony Perez after the 1976 season, he pitched poorly in 1977 and then quit on the team.
    2. Pokey Reese-great glove, poor bat, big mouth.
    3. Rob Dibble-million dollar arm ten cent brain.
    4. Bobby Tolan. I liked him in 1969-72, but he developed an attitude and quit on the team after that.
    5. Alex Johnson-worst fielder I have ever seen with an attitude to match.
    "Hey...Dad. Wanna Have A Catch?" Kevin Costner in "Field Of Dreams."

    1. Alex Johnson - terrible attitude

    2. Woody Fryman - after leaving the team, he said 'always hated the BRM'

    3. Gary Redus - a malcontent

    4. Bob Boone - saying that he over-managed is an under-statement

    5. Dick Wagner - he dismantled everything he touched

    1. Allen
    2. Lindner.
    3. Frank Pastore/John Stupor/Bruce Bernyl -- thanks for making the early 80's miserable with your 6.00+ ERAs.
    4. Steve Parris.. I got to see him 3 freaking times live. Every time I bought a ticket, I got him. He was the main reason I vowed to never buy tickets in advance again.
    5. Most of the 2004 pitching staff. The stench still lingers. They are probably all nice guys, but most are not quality talent.

    I have a feeling that in 3 years, DanO will make the list, but I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt for now.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Re: Five Least Favorite Reds Of All Time

    I scrolled down immediately so as not to be influenced by anyone else's list.

    I love my Reds, but in no particular order these were guys who I was glad to see go (mostly for personal reasons that had nothing to do with performance).

    Roberto Kelly
    Kevin Mitchell
    Bret Boone (but I liked his brother Aaron just fine...go figure)
    Johnny Ruffin
    Pokey Reese

    Probably childish, but he was my wife's favorite all-time Red, too, at least until he refused virtually face to face to sign an autograph for her at a Reds game. I think she sorta forgave him, but I didn't and won't.

    I didn't think it was possible to dislike Paul O'Neill!!!

    I agree with the assessment of Bowden though.
