    Duane Walker and Alan Knicely. I thought they would be studs, but I wanted Knicely to move to first. I also wondered if Brian Dorsett could have hit if he got regular at bats. I don't know why I thought that. He owns a Mitsubishi dealership in Terre Haute now, and he was involved in youth baseball, not sure if he is now or not.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    In my head, Gary Redus was going to make us all forget...well, every player who ever lived. He was THAT good. Whoops.

    Redus, Milner, Essasky, Householder and Stillwell are ones that jump to mind.

    I've always liked catchers for some reason. Eddie Taubensee and Benito Santiago were a couple catchers I liked. I still find myself favoring catchers. I think LaRue is very underrated especially after last year, and especially when it comes to controlling the running game.

    Gary Redus, who never hit higher than .288 in a 13-year Major League career, holds the all-time Minor League mark [minimum 200 at-bats] with .462 at Billings of the Pioneer League in 1978.

    258 at bats - 100 runs - 117 hits - 62 bb - 42 ebh - 42 steals - .462

    I remember Redus on opening day I believe in 1982 hitting the go ahead home run and making a game saving catch running in to the left field wall. I thought at the time and several months later he was destined for Cooperstown.

    Freddie Benavides and Leo Garcia. I figured if they were constantly getting called up they must be some sort of supersubs. I didn't factor in the fact that they were constantly getting sent down as well.

    How could I have been so wrong about Sheldon Burnside?

    It could be worse...I hitched my cart to Adrian Burnside.

    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Holy moly - an OPS of 1.355! Talk about peaking early.

    Re: In retrospect....

    Members of that 1982 team seem to be coming up a lot in this thread, and with good reason. I remember the 1982 Reds yearbook had an article about Dick Wagner and how he had done such a good job of replacing the players lost from the 1981 team, and I truly believed it. Cesar Cedeno in a Reds uniform? I loved it! Former SI cover boy Clint Hurdle, too? And future all star catcher Alex Trevino, along with home grown future stars Householder, Redus, and Duane Walker.

    That was, by far, my most disappointing year as a Reds fan, and I'm sure others here feel the same.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.
