    I wasn't puttin' you down man.. hope you didn't get that impression... I was just making a case and having a little fun ... I respect your opinion on the matter...

    Who was the guy they added in a late spring trade from Montreal a few years back that was supposed to be a "defensive stopper" of an outfielder? I think he had 2-3 errors in his first couple of games and was sent down/released.

    Juan Castro - - would have been fine if he only got 100 at bats in a year (in other words, a utility player, used solely for defense) but the more Boone and Miley played him the more I loathed him.

    Hmmmm, there is another signing I loathe.....

    Re: Reds that you just hated

    I really wanted to hate Kevin Mitchell, just because I thought he had unlimited potential and p*ssed it away by partying and generally not taking his job seriously. However, the big galoot was just so darn loveable I couldn't bring myself to hate him.

    Here are some of my favorite Mitchell highlights:

    + In 1990, he was four days late to spring training because he got injured eating a microwaved donut

    + Injured himself while eating a cupcake - though this is heavily documented, details are scant. It may be an offshoot of the oh-so-true donut injury.

    + Missed a game after straining his eyelids while vomiting

    + Became the first player in Cleveland Indians franchise history who was unable to complete an 850-yard training run.

    + Landed on the DL because he strained his ribcage while vomiting

    + As a member of the Western League's Sonoma County Crushers, Mitchell was suspended for 9 games after punching the opposing team's owner in the mouth.

    + In 2002, as manager of the Sonoma County Crushers, Mitchell was suspended for 7 games after punching an opposing team's 3rd base coach. The coach was apparently stealing signs...

    How could I possibly hate that guy?

    Also Todd Benzinger, simply because in Piqua where I grew up there is a man who has a Todd Benzinger museum in his house.
