    This season's 50 year look back shows the importance of a great defender in LF.

    Alex Johnson, Kal Daniels, Kevin Mitchell and even Pete Rose and George Foster weren't all that good out there, but all played on pretty competitive (or better) teams. Funny, they all could swat the ball.

    mth, I have to say Alex J. was the most lost-looking LFer I've seen in 55 years of watching the Reds.

    You could add Adam Dunn too, though to be honest he didn't play on many competitive teams.

    Seems this has been a very kind date to the Redlegs.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Based on the others in this thread, maybe his defense in LF wasn't the reason.

    Agree, though Kal Daniels gave him a run for his money.
