    I saw the comparison again and it struck in my head that Larry Walker tends to be underrated quite a bit.

    He's in a line of players with hall-of-fame talent, hall-of-fame desire, but an injury prone body.

    See Eric Davis.

    Larry Walker in his prime was about as good as it got. If any of you ever saw him up close, he was a lot faster than he looked on TV. Dude had huge strides. Great arm. Beautiful swing. A great combination of power and on base skills and a pleasure to watch.

    Mildly nuts too.
    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008
