    Interesting note about Mackanin (or perhaps not):
    In the mid-1970s, when there began to be speculation that the Reds were trying to trade Tony Perez to make room for Dan Driessen at first base, there was at one point a published rumor that Perez would be traded to the Expos for Mackanin, who the Reds apparently hoped would fill a hole at third base.
    (Driessen had been tried at third base and couldn't handle it; this obviously predated Rose's switch to that position.)
