    Re: Who are some of your favorite non-Reds players?

    I would have to say that my favorite non-Red is Sean Casey. (He was my favorite player when he was here, though I fully agreed with the decision to trade him--it had to be done to allow the team to grow. In my opinion, he was no longer a good fit for the offense.)

    As a kid, my three favorite non-Reds players were:
    1. Royals 3B George Brett
    2. Orioles 1B Eddie Murray
    3. Phillies 3B Mike Schmidt

    Other favorite non-Reds were:
    Pirates 1B Willie Stargell
    Expos CF Andre Dawson
    Braves CF Dale Murphy
    Brewers 1B Cecil Cooper
    Brewers C Ted Simmons
    Brewers SS Robin Yount
    Tigers RF Kirk Gibson
    Tigers SS Alan Trammell
    Astros 2B Bill Doran (before he became a Red)
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.

    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    Re: Who are some of your favorite non-Reds players?

    Guys with nasty breaking pitches - especially dominant relievers

    Zito
    Scot Shields
    FRod
    Mariano Rivera
    Traver Hoffman
    Brandon Webb

    Sidearmers, submariners and Knuckleballers
    Chad Bradford
    Byung Kim
    Tim Wakefield

    Fundamentally sound Catchers
    Mike Matheny - the best by a long shot
    Any of the Molina clan

    I was privledged to watch Randy Johnson about 12-15 times the last few years. Always felt like something special could happen anytime that guy was on the mound. And it often did.

    Growing up I loved George Brett & Tony Gwynn. Gwynn may be my all time favorite non-Red

    5 off the top of my head

    Suzuki -- completely unique
    Jose Guillen -- I like the way he attacks the ball -- and that arm in RF ain't bad either
    Derek Lee -- a monster on O and D
    Greg Maddux -- diminishing, but still fun to watch him outsmart hitters
    Manny Ramirez -- best RH hitter in the game, in my book
