Why not Alou?
Why not Alou?
Derek Jeter No bloody idea how good he is but talk about the hype machine in full lost get back boogie mode yikes!
ps yes a James Lee Burke book reference.
Surprised Jeff Kent hasn't been mentioned yet. Can't stand that guy. Also can't LaRussa, he's so full of himself. Besides them I suppose it's most of the usual suspects.
and I think I can say this now without getting as much hate thrown at me, but Sean Casey, the first baseman for the Pittsburgh Pirates.
My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!
Ray King first and foremost.
The Chicago Cubs
Chadd Moore (I know he's a Bearcat, but I cannot stand him. He is the worst.)
The Chicago Cubs
Derek Lilliquist (sp?)
"And the fact that watching him pitch is like having someone poop on your soul." FCB on Gary Majewski
I would say Danny Graves, but I don't think he'll ever be on another MLB team.
Will trade this space for a #1 starter.
The fact he usually kills the reds and the whole urinating on the hands thing.....Originally Posted by TeamBoone
Mine in no particular order
Alou (stated above)
Bonds (the man's head has grown twice its size since his rookie season)
Damon (sold his soul for pin stripes)
King (kearns has never been the same and neither has the buffet at ponderosa)
Tavarez (dark alley)
Fisk (over shadows the Reds actually winning series!)
Edmonds (never seen a major leaguer dive just to make sportscenter)
Oswalt (virtually unhittable to Reds bats)
1. David Cone solely for the play-off game in '99.
2. The Cleveland Indians. Living during the 1990's in central Ohio when everyone became a fair-weather Indians fan truly annoyed the crap out of me.
No kidding! I was living in Columbus at the time. And challenge any of them on it and they would reply, "Oh no way, I'm a life-long Tribe fan!" Then ask them a simple Tribe trivia question such as, "Okay hotshot, what position did Mike Hargrove play for the Indians?"...and they couldn't tell you.Originally Posted by scounts22
The thing that kills me is I know several guys who are Reds AND Indians fan. I don't get that at all. To me, that's like being a Bengals AND a Browns fan. Whatever.
Fairweather is right!
Please, then, never ask them who Andre Thornton was, because two weeks later, they'll still be looking for the answer.Originally Posted by max venable
Players/managers I never liked...
Mark McGwar-the redneck pronunciation
Deion Sanders as a Brave/Cowboy, but I loved him as a Red

Looking at former players, I also must add Steve Garvey to the list. The fact he "competed" with Tony for 1B all-star honors did not help his cause with me at the time.

Edmonds tops my list then brian giles cant' stand him arod,berkman always seem to hit a big homer
Manager - Tony Larussa
