    Tony Menendez

    How could the Reds have on their history books a pitcher who hurled four innings and gave up only one hit. Given the Reds history for pitching he should have been elevated to Pual Derringer status post-haste

    Gorged by the rictus of obscurity, Dan Dumoulin, recipient of panegyrics, odes, epodes, broadsides, lais, and ghazals, expelled the contumely of sportswriters by allowing 8 ER in 5 1/3 IP in 1977. What pluck.

    Marcus Moore, hexed by a Marty Brennaman curse tablet, sought the company of other reivers upon banishment.

    What the crap is going on here? I feel like I'm in Bizarro Redszone all of a sudden.


    Isn't this the dude who helped his brother kill their parents?
    This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.

    If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.

    Menendez got the 2-1 win over the dreaded Buccos in July of 1992, he relieved hammond, although scott ruskin might have gotten the nod from the pen

    Tony Tarasco is coming off the bench to face all of the alliteritive RHs, but he is most eager for a Marcus Moore heater

    No, no, no - Menendez was a late '50s Reds pitcher who actually left baseball and went into greater fame as a creator and producer of Charlie Brown TV Specials.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.
