    Mariano Duncan

    Hello everyone...longtime reader of the board and this is my first attempt at starting a thread on the greatest Reds board on the net.

    Just watching baseball tonight and saw Mariano Duncan, now the 3b coach for the Dodgers, get tossed for arguing balls and strikes. Did anyone else see how this was done? Angel Hernandez basically swept his hand to toss Duncan and then when Duncan came to argue his tossing, he threw his hat to the ground, Hernandez picked it up and gave it to a fan, that was something I've never seen done before.

    i saw this also this is a classless act by angel hernadez this guy is an arrogant one who think's the fans come to see him not the game major league baseball should suspend him and the dodgers should send him bill for the hat that's just ridiculous when an umpire thinks he's bigger than thegame it's time for him to leave

    i also agree with that. the umpire should never think he is greater than the game. not sure if angel hernandez was trying to make a point or trying to be part of a highlight real, but something needs to be said about the way he acted. i think the hand motion he made to toss duncan was worse than actually giving the hat away. it was almost like he was too good to even give him the the good ole' heave-ho with the thumb.

    Duncan a switch hitting shortstop who was error prone fell out of favor in LA and was traded to the Reds for a corner outfielder who could smash... 17 years ago tomorrow.

    Acquired with Leary who was the 1988 Comeback player of the year.

    Re: Mariano Duncan

    The way the Reds were acquiring middle infielders, as God as my witness, My heart rate escalated that the Reds were going after 49 yr old Mariano Duncan.

    Then I flashed back and realized it's 2006, not 1990.

    Whew.

    Also reaquired by the Reds in 1995 as a waiver claim, so the Braves wouldn't pick him up.

    Actually, it's John Wetteland, and he never pitched in a Reds uniform. Not sure what that has to do with this thread except for the fact that you like to make these random posts.

    As for Angel Hernandez, he's an assclown. MLB would be better off without him.
    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!

    Wonder what Angel Hernandez would have done if he would have say.....thrown a base. Then things would have and could have gotten very, very, very interesting.

    Wasn't there a poll done by SI a year or two ago where he was voted the worst umpire in baseball by the players?

    Not sure on that, but I would love to see those results, maybe someone (or even me if I can get some time here tonight or tomorrow) google this and find the results?

    Re: Mariano Duncan

    Well a quick google search landed me on this page about the Worst Umpire (it is almost all the way to the bottom of the page) and well Angel Hernandez is actually tied for the fifth worst and well, it really isn't even close to the leader unfortunately. Here is the link:

    Wasn't Wetteland on the roster for one day, in November?

    Do you mean the Reds roster? And November of around which year do you mean?

    According to www.thebaseballcube.com here are the transactions and the exact date periods that John Wetteland was with the Reds. So I guess it is very very possible he could have been on the roster during this time period although it appears that he never even so much as put on a Reds affiliate minor league uniform which is very disappointing in and of itself in my opinion...

    November 27, 1991 Traded by Los Angeles Dodgers with Tim Belcher to Cincinnati Reds for Kip Gross and Eric Davis. Cin: Bob Sr. Quinn
    La: Fred Claire


    December 11, 1991 Traded by Cincinnati Reds with Bill Risley to Montreal Expos for Willie Greene, Scott Ruskin and Dave Martinez. Cin: Bob Sr. Quinn
    Mtl: Dave Dombrowski

    Geez....with us for not even one calendar month!!!!
