    If you are talking about someone who didnt develop as a Red but later on did, then Trevor Hoffman and Paul Konerko tops the list.

    Wily Mo -- Boston is doing the same thing. I'd love to see that kid get 600 PA.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I don't think Wily Mo could reach is potential in the NL.

    To me, the Reds have a tendency to give players too much opportunity, but here are some names I can think of (many of whom are very debateable):

    Dennys Reyes
    Stan Jefferson
    Dan Wilson
    Hector Carrasco
    Rick Reed
    Giovanni Carrara
    Joey Eischen
    Todd Williams
    B.J. Ryan
    Bruce Chen
    Brandon Larson









    (just kidding about Brandon Larson)

    Joe Adcock

    Paul O'Neill

    BTW - woy, I expect to see a homage to the Cleveland Crusaders and Gerry Cheevers or the Indianapolis Races and Wayne Gretzky before the end of the month.

    Little known WHA fact - and there are a ton of them - one of the original 8 franchises were headed to Dayton to become the Aeros. UD Arena didn't want to deal with the ice and Hara Arena was too small and off the team went to Houston and promptly won a couple of AVCO Cups.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    Adam Dunn JK!!!

    Brady Clark was already mentioned but he was/is a solid fundamental player. Reminded me of Kevin McReynolds.

    Ryan Wagner for sure.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    Nothing against DT, TC. Way back when, there were a couple of posters who were really hot-n-bothered that DT didn't make it with the Reds.
