    Brandon Larson could not carry EE's jock, worst #1 position pick by the Reds in the Bowden era has to be Larson.

    To be clear, I am content to be patient as hell with EE, and hope the front office and manager feel the same way.

    Edit: EE was easily the most impressive player I saw last spring in Sarasota. The ball makes that special sound you like to hear when he makes contact at the plate. I yearn for him to succeed. Yearn.

    Actually the Reds got EE and Ruben Mateo for Rob Bell. One of Bowdens' better trades IMO.

    Yep. EE was considered a throw-in because we already had an Encarnacion on the roster.
    Makes all the routine posts.

    You make a good point. However, there are only a few very special players who consistently provide the same competitive performance game after game and year after year. Seemingly less-talented players frequently out-perform more talented ones. For the entire team to compete well, you need good performances from all postitions, so if a particular player is not effective, you need other players to step up and replace the regular player. Many times players start as backups then become regulars. Good backups need the confidence of the manager, so it is appropriate for them so say similiar things as Narron did. While fans have favorite players and some players have personalities that make them more popular than some of their peers, these things should not interfere with a team-first atmosphere that every manager strives to create. I believe that one of the reasons the Reds have done poorly the last few years is that they lack the requisite team unity.
