    I don't know what the general Redszone consensus was regarding Ryan Wagner at the time, but I thought that guy was going to be a lights out closer.

    Oops

    Chris Denorfia was God's gift to AAAA players....(at least here - we'll see what happens in Oakland)

    I'm embarrassed to admit this, but I got suckered in by Ricardo Aramboles!

    I never did see the reason for all the infatuation with Denorfia. And I definitely am convinced all the irritation over losing Kearns and Lopez in "The Trade" was extremely overblown.

    IMO it had as much to do with replacing Griffey in CF (for defense) as it did with anything else. I am a big Junior fan, but even I must admit that it was painful to watch him defensively in CF that last season. The die-hards were desparate for a glove and speed in the middle of the outfield.

    Is this sarcastic? How was he overrated? He hit 40+ home runs and was the leader on the best Reds team of the last 10 years. The Reds have basically had one good year since 1995, and it was the only year he was on the team.

    Agree with that.

    Belisle is gaining ground fast though.

    Zach Ward. Waaay too much enthusiasm for an A-ball pitcher.

    I think he was overrated in general, but Pokey didn't get that much love from Redszoners/Fastballers (I forget where we were then). He was generally viewed as a poor hitter that played just because of his glove.

    Some of these choices are interesting. I guess people interpret overrated differently, but that makes for good reading.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Far and away, it has to be Denorfia, for me anyway. I remember watching the guy and thinking, "This guy is no more than a number four outfielder." I expressed as much on the board and was soundly put down for my opinion. Time will tell (though he has to be at least twenty-six) , but I'll stick by my initial impression. He ran nice (but not superior) outfield routes, and everything else seemed to have a pretty average ceiling.
