    Brad Gulden belongs on that list. Although I never me the guy, his clubhouse lore is one of a real stuck up jerk.

    Forgot about Greg Vaughn. Add him to my list. Heard some really bad things about the "supposed leader" at Reds Baseball Heaven.

    Re: Five Least Favorite Reds Of All Time

    This is in order from most least favorite to least least favorite. Yeah.
    1. Deion Sanders
    2. Carl Lindner - here's hoping he sees this
    3. Cesar Hernandez (He jumps to number 2 because, to my surprise, nobody else has mentioned him yet. Have you forgotten that dropped fly ball at Wrigley in May 1993? That was the turning point in a truly hellish season.)
    4. Rob Dibble
    5. Kal Daniels - (I wanted so much to like him, but I'll never forget the time in 1988 when, once the Reds were eliminated, he said he didn't see the point in playing the rest of the season.)

    Honorable mention goes to Ted Power and Rick Mahler
    "It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come out, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone.

    Wow, I remember Cesar Hernandez!!! I remember Marty trying to dipliimatically say "hey this guy sucks," on the air without actually saying it. I think he got released right after that fateful game when he dropped the ball, actually.

    My others:
    Deion
    Terry Francona
    Roberto Kelly (only because we traded Paulie for him)
    Brandon Larson
    Scott Scudder(he was supposed to be a prospect?)

    1.Ray Knight... Awful manager and he hit Eric Davis while big Eric Gregg had him in a bear hug.
    2.Jimmy Haynes... the guy just threw batting practice.
    3.Jason Larue... just an absolute horrible defensive catcher and lets face he's not exactly Johnny Bench in the batters box.
    4.Pete Rose... great player/horrible person
    5.Ryan Freel... he will eventually hurt someone with his "hustle", i call it being a hot dog!

    Re: Five Least Favorite Reds Of All Time

    Here's some of my all-time NON-favorite Cincinnati Reds' players.

    Cesar Cedeno ... Threw a temper tantrum on the plane at the Chicago airport when he realized he wasn't being given a first class seat. Made a total jerk of himself and flew back to Cincinnati on a different plane.

    Woodie Fryman ... I remember him stinking up the joint as a Red in 1977 and going home. What's up with that?

    Tom Browning ... I think about all the gopher balls he threw in his career when I hear about his perfect game.

    Bip Roberts ... Big mouth little punk.

    Dennis Rasmussen ... I remember sitting in the first-base side blue seats at Riverfront Stadium while watching him take another shellacking. When he was eventually pulled from the game and was walking toward the first base dugout, I stood and yelled, "You STINK!!!!"

    Mario Soto ... He and Gary Nolan threw some of the best change-ups ever thrown in the big leagues, but......
    I remember watching a Reds/Cubs game on WGN while living in New Orleans in 1983 or 84. Soto became unglued and was trying to take a bat into the stands at Wrigley Field. He totally embarrassed me as a Reds fan and as a baseball fan.

    I was approximately 12-14 years old in Brownings rookie year. My younger brother and I ran into him, and he spent about 15 minutes talking to us and he signed for us. Made a good impression on me. Plus, doesn't the dude have like 9 kids? Maybe when you get to know him better, he's a jerk, but he made a good impression on me
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I personally know Woody Fryman and he is a real good person. His youngest son is a jerk. Talked to him last year and he thought the 75 76 reds were the best team he had ever played against. I think in 77 there was a lot of turmoil in the clubhouse between other players and he had just had enough.

    1. Deion Sanders

    Why JimBo felt the need to bring him in the first time, I'll never know, let alone bringing the Scooter Riding, Security Guard hitting non-onbase machine back two more times is a mystery that will last a lifetime.

    2. Pete Rose

    Gives us degenerate gamblers a bad name.

    I don't care how frustrated he was, you don't quit on your team. I was a 13 year old kid in 1977, and remember well the 5-5 record with a 5.30+ ERA (unheard of in that era) Fryman posted. He had been yanked from the rotation, and decided to tend to his tobacco crop in Ewing, KY. It is a painful memory that we traded a HOF'er and the heart & soul of our team for a pitcher with a career losing record and a quitter to boot.
