Looking back at the players I worshiped in my youth, I realize now that I used to really overrate players with my juvenile naivete.
I was certain that Dale Murphy was a future hall of famer. Likewise Joe Carter.
I used to wine about the Reds losing Danny Tartabull in the rule 5 draft.
I thought Shawon Dunston, Jesse Barfield and Chris Sabo were superstars.
Mark Langston seemed to me to be one of the best starting pitchers in the history of the game.
I idolized Manny Trillo and his glove.
